We have four
priority strategies where you can partner with us to reach
more young people:
The teenage world can be compared to a field ripe for harvest,
but with few workers to gather the crop. Students on every
campus in America are ready to trust Christ, if only someone
would take the time to talk with them. The number one priority
of Student Venture is enlisting an army of young staff and
interns who will help bring teenagers to Christ. Our Venture
Corps strategy connects the time and talent of young adults
with the spiritual needs of high school and junior high students.
The first phase of the strategy calls for "filling
the pipeline" with potential workers.
1. Exposure to Manpower
Pools. Our audiences includes the college ministry of Campus
Crusade, other college ministries and
2. Experience Through Entry-Level Opportunities. Ministry
tracks for first-hand involvement through summer internships,
and international projects.
3. Enlist Interns and Staff. The long-term fruit of the
Venture Corps strategy is the commitment of men and women
4. Equip Workers for the Harvest. Extensive training and
supervision for all workers.
The Beyond Extreme Student Survival Kit is a unique tool
designed for mass distribution to high school and junior
high students, giving them the opportunity to hear the
gospel in a relevant media format. It is a conversation
starter for Christian students and opens doors for them
to share their faith. The kit contains a music CD, Bible,
state-of-the-art video and other practical resources to
help introduce them to Christ.
Student Survival Kits are used to reach out to a particular
group on campus, an entire school, or can even give every
student in an entire city or state the chance to hear about
Christ. Just recently, every high school and middle school
student in Hawaii was offered a kit; 70,000 students in
all received one. Students pass out the kits on campus
before and after school or during any non-instructional
time under their first amendment right to free speech.
Your gift at this time of $800 will help give 100 teenagers
an opportunity to hear the gospel. A gift of $8,000 will
help reach 1000 or more students.
In every community there are people who would reach teenagers
at their local schools if they just had the know-how and
resources to do so. The Coaching Center is a rapid-response,
telephone and Internet-based coaching stratey that helps
surface local adults and students, and equips them to reach
the campuses. The Coaching Center is uniquely able to find
good contacts through targeted radio, magazine and church

It is our conviction that the most influential cities
and people in America remain unreached. As a result they
have contined to influence culture apart from the truth
of Jesus Christ through media, music, fashion and commerce.
Thousands of unreached teenagers live in the cities that
shape our pop culture, and many of them live in the homes
where their parents participate in the shaping of America.
Topping the list are strategic areas of New York City and
Los Angeles. In the days ahead we are taking the gospel
to the least reached, most influential cities and families
Unreached areas are often difficult areas, requiring a
strong commitment, wisdom and strategy and mature
workers. Our commitment involves using all four of Student
ministry methods: Field Teams, The Coaching Center
and Venture Media & Venture Web.
1. Relocate Student Venture
Field Teams. Penetrating the key schools in NYC and LA
with qualified leadership is the
first critical step.
2. Distribute Student Survival Kits. Survival Kits sow the truth of the gospel and open doors
for campus ministry.
3. Utilize The Coaching Center. The Coaching Center is
a rapid-response, telephone and internet-based strategy
helps surface local adults and students, and equips them
to reach campuses.
