Evangelism on Uni Campuses

Author:  Jess Khor | Oct 12th, 2014

The first thought that comes to mind when I think of evangelism on Campus is walk-up evangelism.

You know, when you walk up to a complete stranger and ask if they’d like to hear about Jesus?

Immediately, I feel guilty because I haven’t done enough of it and at the same time I feel that dread in the back of my neck that doesn’t seem to go away no matter how many times I’ve done it before.

If you share this feeling, then take heart – you are not alone.

owever, in reality this view of evangelism is quite skewed.

Have You Got Some News Worth Sharing?

I love student stories!

It's awesome to be part of what God is doing among students in Australian universities.

And I especially love stories of students living and speaking for Jesus.

For me, the momentous news about our Lord Jesus – focusing on his life, death and resurrection, and shot through with wonder at all God does and shows himself to be in him – is news worth sharing, among university students and beyond.

What Does It Look Like To Engage The Whole University?

”What does it look like to engage the whole university?”

I left the Simeon Network* dinner last December with this question scrawled (several times) across the pages of my notebook.

For all the time and energy that goes into living as a Christian among university staff and postgraduate students, I don’t often stop to ask myself this question.

What a great blessing it was to attend the Simeon Network dinner and explore it with brothers and sisters from universities around Australia!

Let's Get Serious About Reaching The Campus

Author:  Chris Swann | Feb 11th, 2014
"If Christian Unions are serious about giving every student the opportunity to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus then serious participation in the life of the University is essential.”

— Dave Bish, UCCF Staffworker with the Exeter Christian Union in the UK

Is this the rallying cry for your campus group?

One Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF) Staffworker thinks it should be the rallying cry for his Christian Union.

Aeropress Evangelism

Author:  Tony Jenner | Jan 31st, 2014

Out with the coffee plunger and in with the aeropress I say.

The aeropress is a light-weight, compact, indestructible, and easy to clean coffee maker. Outside an expresso machine, it makes the smoothest nicest coffee I’ve tasted…

Best of all, it’s fantastic for evangelism!

At the Charles Darwin University open day last year, I took along my aeropress, my coffee grinder and a couple of bags of beans. A couple of students and I spent the day chatting with people and making them great-tasting coffee for them to enjoy for free.

OnCampus 2013 Evangelism

Author:  Karen Morris | Sep 23rd, 2013

Hi, Can I talk to you about God?

In a thousand different forms this is the question that AFES groups around Australia are asking of students. And an amazing number of people say yes!

Where else in Australia are you allowed to be this blunt talking about Jesus? The amazing opportunity we have on campuses changes and evolves with every generation but never seems to diminish. Year after year people meet Christ personally.

Why should we do apologetics?

May 20th, 2013

It seems many in the evangelical world are suspicious of apologetics. I don’t hear many people using it as a tool in evangelism. I have even heard the view: ‘just preach the gospel – the Holy Spirit will do the rest’.

C.S. Lewis famously said: ‘I would rather defend a lion’ – implying that Christianity does not need defending. So a debate has gone on for many years about whether we should ‘do apologetics’ or just ‘preach the gospel’.

Yet ‘apologia’ is the word Paul used in Acts 26:1-3 as he made his ‘defence’ before King Agrippa.
