How to use this site
Campus Ministry Link will enable your child to instantly search for and send a private message to a leader from any ministry or church with a college group at any college your child is interested in.
ONE SITE TO CONNECT TO ANYONE
Campus Ministry Link has partnerships with most every Christian college ministry in the country. Our goal is to get your child connected with a thriving Christ-centered community of faith. Soon we will also have ways your child can connect with other incoming Christian Freshmen at their college.
THE DECISION IS YOURS
We don’t promote any one church or ministry over another. There are lots of strong churches and ministries. Once your child register, they will be able to see specific information and images from any of the ministries or churches working with students at any college before they message them. They choose who they want to connect with.
Studies have shown that the first 72 hours are critical to whether or not you continue following Jesus in college, so it’s important that you take steps to get plugged into a ministry and/or church and meet those that will help to encourage you and build you up in your faith early.

How connection changed Black Rock Church
Black Rock Church in Fairfield, CT used to experience the typical 70% loss as their students were graduating.
“Last year I had all of my high school students participate…All were greatly challenged to be spiritually ready for college. Most were blown away by the idea that their first 72 hours at college were the most important in staying strong in their faith. As they have started college, they say that much of what they learned was true about their first days at college. Many of them were plugged into campus ministries quickly because of this. The result? All of our graduates continued in their faith!”
-Jeremy Taylor, HS Director, Black Rock Community Church, CT
