Saturate EVERY campus in Missouri with the GOOD NEWS of Jesus
We aim to have an MBC ministry presence on every college campus in Missouri. That means starting 35 new ministries in the next 10 years. Our objectives are to:
- START new ministries
- STRENGTHEN existing ministries
- EQUIP local churches & individuals to reach students
Train, Equip, & Empower…
The State of College Students
College campuses are filled with the next generation of church – and world – leaders. Yet here’s what college students are up against:
- Over 50% of college professors view evangelical Christian students unfavorably
- More than 1/3 of Millenials now say they are unaffiliated with any faith
- 17% (about 1 out of 6) of Missouri college students contemplated suicide in the past year
- 2% (1 out of 50) of Missouri college students attempted suicide in the past year.
- In 2014, 14.6% of Missouri college students reported that they had been sexually assaulted in the past year.
