Mobilization

Mobilization is equipping, engaging, and connecting people to their most strategic role in the Great Commission.

As we see people come to faith in Christ and disciple them while in college, our hope is that they would enter different parts of the world with transformed lives, seeking to be agents of transformation.  Regardless of occupation or context, we desire that all graduates would live out their Christian calling: to know God and make Him known.

Because the laborers are still few, Campus Outreach desires to intentionally mobilize every leader on our campuses to multiply their lives in the lost world.

WHY ARE WE COMMITTED TO THIS?

The effectiveness of our ministry is measured not in the few years that students are involved in our ministry while they are in college but in the way that those students are actively engaged in advancing God’s kingdom five, fifteen, and twenty-five years after they graduate. Our mission is to build laborers for the world, the world beyond the campus.  We want to see these equipped leaders from our campuses continue laboring for the rest of their lives.

HOW WILL WE DO THIS?

PREPARING LEADERS FOR THE TRANSITION
Our staff will engage seniors in Mobilization discussion groups where they will discuss key topics for healthy transition to post-college life (ex. spiritual growth, local church, missional living, work and career, money, resources, and transition).

LAUNCHING LEADERS TO MULTIPLY
Our staff will help students identify their Desires, Design, Development needs, and Doors that would lead them to discover ways for them to multiply their lives in the world. To see this vision come to reality, we seek to set up strategic mobilization opportunities and partnerships which are designed to help college graduates commit to gospel-centered community, learn from godly mentors, and be on mission with Christ.

The Harvest is Plentiful, The Laborers are Few (article)- Excerpt: Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance." That proves true in our global strategies for advancing God's kingdom. If the command given by Jesus is to make disciples of all nations (or ethnic groups), then we can make it our goal to find those ethnic groups that have not been discipled and taught to be followers of Christ.
Every Christian a World Christian (article) - Excerpt: Ingrained in the minds of many Christians is the idea that to be involved in mission work means one thing only: living overseas long-term. This is a limited way to approach missions because it excludes most people. Even those who go long-term will eventually come home and need to appropriate their vision in another way. If it is an attribute of God to desire the redemption of all nations, then it must be cultivated into every one of His followers as an attribute.
