The vision of Campus Outreach is Glorifying God by Building Laborers on the Campus for the Lost World. We seek to build laborers with a commitment to the Great Commission through evangelism and discipleship. We are passionately reaching students with the gospel and training them to become mature followers of Christ. Our desire is then to see students leave college fully equipped to labor in the harvest field for the glory of God.
What is Campus Outreach Belo Horizonte?
Campus Outreach in Belo Horizonte, Brazil was launched in 1997 by Campus Outreach Birmingham and Briarwood Presbyterian Church with a focused campus ministry at UFMG, a top-rated federal university in Brazil.
Our local church partner and authority is Comunidade Horizonte, a church plant with roots in the campus ministry.
Through our vision of Glorifying God by Building Laborers on the Campus for the Lost World, we desire to see a multiplying campus ministry spread throughout Belo Horizonte and Brazil to impact the whole world.
Our strategy is to:• Evangeliize students with the gospel of Jesus Christ.• Establish Christians into mature disciples of Jesus Christ.• Equip disciples to be laborers for Jesus Christ.• Export graduates into places of service for Jesus Christ in the church and world.
This generation of Brazilian university students is seeing the gospel as relevant to their lives and eternities for, perhaps, the first time. By God’s grace students are committing their lives to Christ, impacting their classmates, families, business colleagues and many other Brazilian walks of life.
