Campus Missionary Interns
What is a Campus Missionary?
Your mission field will be a college campus in Texas. As a Campus Missionary, you will be heavily involved in evangelism and discipleship through coaching students, prayer-walking, servant-evangelism, luncheons, and leading small groups. This position for ministry will allow you to use your gifts and be challenged to go beyond your comfort zone to reach students. On some campuses, you may also be assigned to focus on athletes or fraternity and sorority members. Some Campus Missionaries may also have a focus on International students by teaching conversational English classes, assisting with weekly international gatherings and special events. Several positions are available specifically for African-American and Hispanic students.
SPECIAL NOTE: CMI applicants will complete the CAMPUS MISSIONARY APPLICATION, not the Go Now application. You WILL NOT attend Discovery Weekend in February.

Here’s what former Campus Missionaries have to say:
"Well, you may be wondering what 'campus missionary' means. It blows me away, honestly. Well...my job is simply not a job, which is a joy to me. I get...I'm allowed...I'm called...to work with college students developing relationships that hopefully will lead to them enjoying the best relationship of all times...one with Christ. I get to be about discipleship, which involves fully investing in individual lives...loving, guiding, teaching, and sharing life with students. It's an opportunity to really touch lives on an eternal level and I'm thrilled to get in and get my hands dirty!" - Carrie, former Campus Missionary at Amarillo College
"When I graduated from college I wanted to get a "real" job, but didn't. I wanted to pursue a relationship in a certain way, but didn't. I wanted to take more classes, but didn't. Instead, I invested my life in the lives of students as a Campus Missionary, and because of that I'm a different person. I wouldn't have it any other way." -Shannon, former Campus Missionary at UT Tyler
"My heart is beating for the ones named Desolate.
The ones who haven't experienced the undeserving grace that I receive on a daily basis.
The ones who don't believe they are fearfully and wonderfully made.
The ones who serve a god that requires and takes.
My heart beats for these people to be renamed!
For them to serve a Savior who is risen.
I want them to know He delights in them, and that there is a Savior who seeks them out, who loves them, and who offers them everlasting life- despite their inadequate state.
That's why I have decided to be a campus missionary."
-Jessie, former Campus Missionary at Amarillo College
