Search is a peer-led retreat weekend sponsored by the
Diocese of Raleigh that touches people’s lives because it encourages
participants to seek and find Christ in them and in one another. It is a series
of witness talks and activities prepared and given by a team of high school
youth. The weekend gives you the opportunity to look at your faith and
life in a new way.
Who goes to Search?
10th, 11th, and 12th graders, and adults who work with them,
who want to be a part of an exciting and different weekend attend a Search
Retreat. People participate in the Search program for various reasons.
Some go to experience something different, others to meet and spend time with
people their own age. Some have a strong faith while others are
questioning God’s existence. Don’t let nervousness stand in the way of a
special weekend. Please join us for an experience that will be long remembered.

“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.”
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.
