Campus Life


“Campus Life is a non-denominational effort to make a positive impact on the lives of teens. More specifically, Campus Life is a ministry of Youth For Christ that The Life and Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church are active supporters of. I strongly encourage that anyone that attends a school that hosts a club to give it a try.”

Michael Smith

Why Campus Life?

As part of the body of Christ, our vision is to see every young person in every people group in every nation have the opportunity to make an informed decision to be a follower of Jesus Christ and become a part of a local church

We believe Campus Life is the best way to reach middle school and high school teens in their world.  It gives us a strategic way to pursue young people at local schools throughout the Fayetteville Area and in communities all over the USA.

What is Campus Life?

Campus Life ministry combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools.  Like every ministry of YFC, Campus Life seeks to engage these young people wherever they are found as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.  Campus Life is a place for high school and middle school students to have fun, make friends and talk about what matters.  Campus Life provides a balanced approach – physical, mental, social and spiritual – to give teens the skills and hope they need to live in a turbulent world.

How Does Campus Life Work?


First it is important to note that Campus Life focuses heavily upon relational evangelism.  In that regard, we teach and model 3Story.  3Story is a way of life that guides followers of Christ to BE good news while telling stories of THE good news.  It is natural, friendly, and freeing – as you abide in Christ, His love flows through you to others as you journey together.

The 5 essential values we filter everything through in Campus Life.
