The Challenge

Universities in Australia are full of students who are poised to make life-changing decisions about what they believe and where they are heading. AFES works in this God-given window of opportunity to reach students for Christ.

The Fellowship

AFES employs staff to help and encourage students in their Christian growth and witness, and has student groups on campuses in every state and territory in Australia. Groups hold a variety of activities, such as regular public Bible talks, smaller Bible studies, prayer groups, mid-year conferences and outreach events.

AFES provides materials to students for evangelism and Bible study, and the email prayer resource, Prayernet.

The Vision

Proclaiming Jesus Christ at university to present everyone mature in Him.

The Mission

To promote the mission of Christ in Australian universities by building evangelical student groups that:

  • evangelise students by proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord
  • encourage growth toward maturity in Christ
  • train students in the skills and character to serve Jesus and his people
  • send graduates throughout Australia and the world to serve Christ
