Campus Outreach SERVE
As a part of Campus Outreach, we partner with the local church to share the gospel on the ITESO University campus in Guadalajara. As we get to know students and build relationships, sharing our faith with them comes naturally. They see how our lives look different from what they’ve seen, so they want to know why, and they begin to ask questions. Our purpose is to share the gospel with them over time and invite them to church to connect them to more Christians so that they can see what walking with Christ looks like in the Christian faith. When they become a Christian, we aim to disciple them, equip them, and send them out to live in the world for the glory of God in whatever they do in the future.
