Public Campus Ministry

Our Vision

The goal of the General Conference Public Campus Ministry is to see young people grounded in the mission of Jesus Christ and the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and able to reach and engage their fellow campus students in life-long relationships with Jesus. Furthermore, Public Campus Ministry not only concerns itself with nurturing students but also supporting Adventist professors and others who work at public campuses. We work together in collaboration with the Divisions, Unions, Conferences, and attached fields to help accomplish this because we know that one of the best ways to keep youth and young adults from leaving their faith as college students is to train and permit them to lead. Young people are valuable participants in this ministry. We all look to the local church as the real home of public campus ministry.

PCM 10th Anniversary

Over the past decade, we have tirelessly worked together, achieving milestones, and making a positive impact in countless lives of Adventist students and staff on Public Campuses. May we reflect on our journey with gratitude, honor the dedicated individuals who have contributed, and look forward to a future filled with continued growth, service, and success. Glory to Jesus. Thank you for being an integral part of this incredible journey!

What is the Purpose of Public Campus Ministries?

Caleb Vision

Caleb Mission aims at utilizing the creative energies of students (particularly in Public Campuses) to dedicate some of their vacation time to Jesus. The initiative encourages anyone over sixteen years of age to actively participate in community outreach and evangelism through home visits, Bible studies, and other activities.

Bible study guide

inVerse is a Bible study guide for university/college students, young adults, working professionals, and young parents. Published by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, two of the four quarters correlate with the same study topics as the Adult Bible Study Guide, while the two remaining topics specifically address young adult issues. The inVerse Bible study guide curriculum has been developed for those who yearn for a more profound Bible study experience. It will dare you to engage Scripture more deeply and more broadly, ultimately enriching the ability to share your growing experience with others. Everything from the content to the format has been designed to enhance your spiritual journey if you will accept the challenge of engaging in this Bible study. Use the thirteen-lesson Bible study guides for student weekly prayer meetings, Sabbath School, personal devotionals, or small groups.

PCM Day

Public Campus Ministry Day 2023 (#PCM23) is a global program celebrated at the local church level. PCM is the ministry to Adventist students and faculty on public university and college campuses that will help PCM members to understand that compassion is not just about meeting the needs of someone in the moment, but it is also about giving what is right, useful, and beneficial to the person being helped. It is our hope that this PCM Day will inspire you to be more like Jesus when you look at others. Like the Bible records in Mark 6:34, may we also be deeply moved when we see our families, friends, workmates, classmates, and even the stranger on the streets heading for eternal death. Jesus was so deeply moved with compassion when he looked at them and saw that they were headed to death that he stopped and took the time to teach them. To show them how they could be saved from sin. This is what we are called to do, save people from eternal hell.
