Why do we need to engage College Students?

Statistically, 95 % of the over 60,000 Denton college students are not pursuing a relationship with Jesus.  That means that only 3,000 students that attend UNT, TWU or NCTC are actively engaged in a faith in Jesus Christ and that 57,000 are not.  

Our hope is to build a partnership of local churches working together to take the Gospel to these campuses and to better disciple the students within the church.
