Campus Outreach Greenville is now Campus Outreach Columbia!
As you may know, Campus Outreach is a ministry that formally partners with local churches across the country and the world in order to engage in college ministry. Our home church for Campus Outreach Greenville is changing from Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church in Greenville, SC, to Columbia Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC! With the church change comes a city change and finally, our name change!
We’ve been partnering with Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church in Greenville, SC for over 2 decades now, but both we and MRPC are so convinced that this move is from God! When we began our partnership with MRPC, we had a Campus Outreach presence at a campus nearby so students and staff from our ministry were attending and involved with MRPC. Over the years, however, our presence in the Greenville area has shifted and we no longer have staff or students attending MRPC. This has been really sad for us because we want to function as a ministry of the local church-- presence in, relationship with, and influence from the local church is really important to us! Our transition to CPC in Columbia will allow for this to happen once again- something CPC, MRPC, and our region are all really excited about!
Columbia Presbyterian has been praying for and seeking a college ministry. The church is strategically located just a few miles from USC, a campus with over 35,000 college students! With this transition, we will have at least nine staff and many more students calling CPC their church home. Even though change brings its challenges, we know that God is positioning us and our church partnerships for more growth.
Please join us in praying for this transition—spiritually, relationally, administratively and financially. Thank you for your partnership and support of our ministry!
