Steps to Reach a Campus

The mission of MCMM is to mobilize, equip, and resource the local church to reach campuses. We want to see your local church reaching your local schools, in a dynamic way! To this end, we have created a 4-step action plan, which we refer to as "The Path".

 

Action Step #1 | Express Interest
The first step in reaching a local campus through a student led Jesus Club is to let MCMM know you want to reach a campus! Complete a brief information form and you're on your way to reaching a local campus!

 

Action Step #2 | Get Trained
By participating in a detailed training, called "The Lab", you will be provided with step-by-step instructions for launching a dynamic campus ministry (MCMM refers to the ministry model as "Jesus Club"). In-person and online training options are available.

 

Action Step #3 | Register Club
Once trained, you will be required to register the school where the student led Jesus Club will be launching. Registration involves submitting information to MCMM about  your church and the club's student leader and teacher sponsor. When you register, you will be granted access to the OVSM Network. The OVSM Network will provide you with practical resources and connection with other ministry leaders across the nation! This will also be the portal through which you submit a monthly update (approx. 5 minutes to complete) on your campus ministry. There are free and paid resource tiers on the OVSM Network.

 

Action Step #4 | Announce Launch
You’ve been training, registered a campus, received resources, and have launched your Jesus Club! The final step in "The Path" is to announce the launch of your Jesus Club and share about the student lives being changed!

My Campus My Mission Definitions

My Campus My Mission (MCMM): The training initiative of One Voice Student Missions to mobilize, equip, and resource the local church to reach campuses through student led Jesus Clubs.

 

Chapter: A chapter is a local church that is reaching a campus with the One Voice/MCMM student led Jesus Club model.

 

Chapter Leader: A church representative who will act as a representative of your campus ministry, on the church front. They will organize and lead your church team, connect and work with the Jesus Club student leaders, and act as the main contact between your church, local school, and MCMM.

 

Teacher Sponsor: A teacher on the campus who is agreeing to act as a staff advisor for the club.

 

Student Leader: A student who will be the leader of the club. All student-led clubs require student leadership.

 

Jesus Club: A Jesus Club is a weekly, lunchtime gathering where students hear the good news of Jesus through a simple presentation of the gospel. A Jesus Club is different than a traditional Christian Club in that's its focus is on reaching non-believers.

 

Reached: A campus that has a local church, recognized as a chapter by My Campus My Mission, working with the student-led Jesus Club.

 

Unreached: A campus without a My Campus My Mission Chapter (local church). OVSM sees any campus as unreached, even if there are other faith-based groups present, if there is not a local church connected with MCMM working there.

 

In-process: A campus where a local church has registered for it and is on the path to reach that school. A campus may be in-process for up to 2 months. If it has not been reached by the end of that time it will be recategorized as unreached (exceptions to be made at the discretion of MCMM).

 

The Path: The Path is the 4-step action plan for the local church to take a campus from being unreached to reached.

What is MCMM?

My Campus, My Mission (MCMM) is the training initiative of OVSM. MCMM focuses on mobilizing, equipping, and resourcing the Local Church to reach public middle schools and high schools through student led Jesus Clubs.

How is MCMM different from other high school focused ministries?

MCMM is focused on training local churches - youth pastors and student leaders - to effectively see student led clubs flourish with the support of students' local churches.

Does MCMM only train local churches to reach campuses?

Yes. MCMM only trains Local Churches and Missional Communities to reach campuses.

Is MCMM (OVSM) a “Para-Church”?

While MCMM (OVSM) is a missionary staffed movement, we do not consider ourselves a para-church. We believe  in empowering the local church to accomplish the mission of reaching high schools.

What is One Voice Student Missions (OVSM)?

One Voice Student Missions (OVSM) is a missions organization that exists to see students saved, discipled, and sent. My Campus, My Mission (MCMM) is a training initiative of One Voice Student Missions.

What is "The Lab"?

"The Lab"  is the title of MCMM’s in-person and online trainings. Completing "The Lab" training is Action Step #2 to reach a campus.

Can I register a campus and never complete a training?

No. If you choose not to complete "The Lab" training with MCMM, you will be unable to move forward in the action plan and the campus will maintain an unreached status. 

Why is a school I minister at listed as "unreached"?

OVSM/MCMM sees any campus as unreached, even if there are other faith-based groups present, if there is not a local church connected with MCMM working there.

 

In order for a school to be categorized as REACHED under MCMM, there are several criteria that must be met.

1. A local church has launched a Jesus Club Chapter on the local high school, through student led leaders. This requires active participation of a local church.
2. Adult Chapter leaders have registered the school
3. Adult Chapter leaders have completed "The Lab" training
4. Chapter hosts weekly Connect Days
5. Chapter hosts weekly Jesus Club gatherings
6. Chapter hosts weekly Discipleship Groups
7. Chapter submits monthly report
