There is something for everyone that can help change your life, the community, and the world! Find your place today.
Apostolic Youth Corps (AYC) will facilitate the pairing of North American, ministry-minded, Pentecostal youth with global destinations that need and desire evangelism assistance. AYC candidates will assist Global Missionaries, North American Missionaries, and work in cooperation with Global Campus Ministry, Campus Ministry International, Compassion Services International, and Metro Evangelism. For information about current trips visit the Apostolic Youth Corps website.
Campus Ministry International (CMI) was formed to enable and encourage local churches to effectively reach out to the college and university populations in their vicinities with the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is done by a variety of means, including motivating districts and churches to establish and maintain campus evangelism, providing materials and training to aid in the formation of these campus ministries, acting as a clearinghouse for the gathering and distribution of new information, ideas, and materials, and establishing communication and cooperation between campus ministries in our fellowship. Get connected now at the CMI website.
