VISION

The mission of His House Christian Fellowship at FSU is to carry out the Great Commission (Matt. 28:16-20) on campus and to be the people God wants us to be.

Our daily vision is:

    • to be a fully-functioning body of Christ on the campus of Ferris State University
    • to mold non-believers into believers, and to mold believers into disciples
    • to send alumni out to continue serving God in ministries and churches around the world.

Our long-term vision is:

    • for God to provide additional staff so that His ministry at Ferris can steadily grow
    • to reach an increasing number of Ferris students with the gospel each year

PASSION

Campus is a unique place, with a diverse culture, made up of students with various backgrounds from around the world.  Caught between youth and adult, high school student and full-time career, students find themselves suddenly taken away from the safety and familiarity of home and surrounded by strangers and strange ways.  They find themselves in the midst of great freedom, great temptation, and great opportunity to make a difference.  This is the place where students make decisions of their own, decisions that will shape the rest of their lives and we hope, decisions that will impact the rest of the world when the leave campus.  This is why we are here.

Campus ministry can be effective at local, state, national and global levels.  However, to minister most effectively, we must reach individuals one on one.  Though we have been here for over 15 years and our fellowship has grown from 12 to hundreds, our mission remains the same-to share the grace of Jesus Christ with individuals, to baptize them, and to teach them to obey all he has commanded (Matthew 28:16-20). We trust He will impact many-one by one.

Campus ministry includes four major areas.

1) Students are taught about God and how to know Him better.
2) Students are given opportunities to build healthy relationships through activities at our campus houses.
3) Students are encouraged to grow on a personal level through small group Bible Studies, retreats, service projects and mission trips.
4) All these things are brought together in the last area where students are challenged and given the opportunity to serve their peers by taking on their own volunteer position within the campus ministry or the community.
