Since 2016, Park Church has invested in college campus ministries as a main thrust of our local evangelism strategy. Through a long partnership with Campus Outreach, we have supported many campus missionaries in several of the ways we support our full-time Park Church staff members. We know many of you have also partnered with these men and women in their work for the Gospel at UNC, DU, School of Mines, and Regis University.
This year, we’re making a significant change in how do campus ministry by bringing this outreach in-house as Park College. Park College will have two main focuses:
- Connecting students to the local church. This effort is not to replace the important role of campus ministries in the lives of students, but to help students also be a part of a larger body of believers while in college. We believe that a focused, student-specific community and a broader church community are equally beneficial in these formative years.
- Building relationships with existing college ministries for collaborative outreach. Local churches and campus ministry organizations both have strengths and weaknesses in relationship to reaching college students. Park College will seek to be a resource campus ministries while also being resourced by them.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
If are already supporting one or more Campus Outreach Denver staff members, we highly encourage you to continue supporting them in their new roles as Park College staff members. They will continue to raise support for their salaries.
Perhaps more importantly, Park College strives to connect college students to the life of the local church, and if you’re reading this email, that’s you. We pray that you will engage with these students as they attend Park Church congregations. Invest in their lives, have them over for dinner, involve them in your Gospel Communities, and ask our Park College staff members what else you can do.
