BECOME A CAMPUS MOBILIZER by the Traveling Team
ELEVEN STUDENTS WHO CHANGED THE WORLD by Steve Shadrach
We don’t have to look far to see the incredible potential of college students. Even though only 1 percent of the world’s population are collegians, what a powerful 1 percent they are! This small sliver of humanity is, and will be, the leader of every facet of society.

THE FUEL AND THE FLAME by Steve Shadrach
“… timeless truths on the fundamentals of (campus) ministry – building relationships, evangelism, establishing new believers, equipping them to disciple and train others, and then how to launch them into the world as laymen or full time laborers!” (Amazon.com review)
Our vision is to see college students recruited, trained and connected to strategic involvement in reaching every ethnic people group with the good news of Jesus Christ in our lifetime. We do this by coming alongside existing church and para-church collegiate ministries. With their blessing and collaboration, we seek to provide students in their ministries with resources, community and coaching focused on helping them move toward strategic involvement in reaching every ethnic people group.
The Traveling Team’s purpose is to glorify God by educating and equipping college students to become World Christians who fulfill their responsibility in World Evangelization. Their web site is excellently set up to take anyone, student or non-student, through a host of topics and articles on what every World Christian should know.
Student Mobilization (Stu Mo) targets key campuses in the South Central United States to place enthusiastic, biblically solid staff in order to engage collegians at a spiritual level. Stu Mo uses events such as the annual Kaleo Summer Project and the Christmas Conference to love and challenge students to become laborers for Christ. Stu Mo staff seek to build relationships with, pray for and ministry to key students on campus with the purpose of helping these students develop their own relationship with Christ and personal ministry to other students.
STUDENT VOLUNTEER MOVEMENT 2 (SVM2)
SVM2 is a relatively new mission mobilization ministry for the student world.
Intervarsity Christian Fellowship has really ramped up their web site! Their own humble description of their site is, “a place to learn about global mission and God’s will, and to be challenged by the world’s needs.”
None at this time.
CONFERENCES & CLASSES
The following ministries are nationally and/or regionally focused. Some are entirely student mobilization oriented, while others, though not specifically focused on students, offer helpful input for students searching for God’s leading in mission.

THE TRAVELING TEAM PRESENTATIONS
The Traveling Team offers a presentation on God’s heart for the world that will ignite vision and passion in the hearts of your students. The presentation, which lasts around 40-45 minutes, is comprised of a Biblical Basis of missions and walks the students through God’s heart for all peoples from Genesis to Revelation.
Passion Conferences are under the ministry umbrella of CHOICE Resources in Roswell, Georgia. Springing out of ten years of student ministry on the local campus, the vision of CHOICE Resources is to develop tools and conferences “leading others to renewed passion for God and fresh encounters of worship.” Giving leadership to CHOICE since its inception is Louie Giglio. Louie, who has fifteen years experience in working with college and university students, travels nationally, speaking to audiences of all ages. His passion is to challenge others to know God intimately, worship Him wholeheartedly, and follow Him radically.
Held every three years (next conference is December 2009) Urbana is an opportunity to talk to real-life missionaries. At Urbana, there will be a Missions Exhibit, where you can get information from over 250 mission agencies, graduate schools and seminaries. You can explore short and longer-term overseas mission opportunities or just learn about education programs in missions. You will be able to attend various workshops, worship with a huge multi-ethnic congregation, listen to God’s word through his servants, pray with fellow brothers and sisters, and just broaden your perspective on how you can be used by the Lord-at your campus or at your work place. Don’t miss this opportunity!
Currently Missions Fest conferences are being held in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. These are similar to ACMC conferences, designed especially for training local churches in current missions training and thinking, but are very relevant to students seeking to discover their role in world evangelization.
