Get your daily dose of Jesus over a donut. Did I mention that you’re at school, with friends? Campus Faith Clubs want to help you find faith, food, and fellowship right in your own school, where you already spend so much of your time.
If you want to grow your personal relationship with Jesus Christ, a Campus Faith Club is for you. A faith club can be the perfect place to walk with your peers towards Jesus Christ, Himself.
Campus Faith Clubs operate across the nation in high schools and middle schools, alike. Who knows, there might even be one at your school! A map with our locations is at the bottom of the page.
Even if there’s not a Campus Faith Club in your school, we have so many great resources available, it’s easy for you and your friends to step up, start a club, and build a spiritual lighthouse in your school!

What are Campus Faith Clubs?
They are groups of students who come together and meet bi-weekly or twice monthly before school, on campus, for faith, food and fellowship. The meetings are supported and encouraged by teachers and last for 20-30 minutes where students share with one another a faith message based on scripture/prayer and a light breakfast of donuts and juice to start the day.
What aren’t Campus Faith Clubs?
The clubs are not a worship service or a replacement for church youth groups or Sunday service (even if that were the intention, it would not be possible because of time constraints and school policy). Rather, it is an organized and accepted forum by which students can get connected and encourage one another for faith and healthy decision-making.
What is the difference between a CFC and a school Bible study you might see on campus?
The two may be similar, but they have some distinct differences. First, while both involve scripture, Campus Faith Clubs are open and advertised for all to attend and participate. It is not an exclusive group of select students but rather an inclusive group where all are encouraged to attend – believer or non-believer, regardless of denomination or faith background. Second, the club is pre-approved by administration with teacher advisors. Teachers serve as role models and facilitators. Finally, the clubs are organized to renew each year. Students are identified each year to lead the groups the following school year. There is sustainability because of the club organization and a club charter.
Who can attend?
Any student 6th-12th grade depending on the location. While the faith messages are Christian-oriented, non-Christians are welcomed and encouraged to attend. The messages are also non-denominational with an emphasis on biblical truths and application for everyday living.
What we Believe: our Statement of Faith
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, without error in the original writing, and the supreme and final authority in doctrine and practice.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless Life, in His Miracles, in His death and atonement through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, that faith through grace in the Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Spirit are essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, for God to work and to will for his good purpose.
We believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
We believe in the spiritual unity of the Church, which is the Body of Christ, composed of all who believe and are regenerated through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
How can a faith club meet on campus at a public school?
The Equal Access Act of 1984 gives religious-based organizations the same rights for organizing as a club as any other school-supported club or activity. As long as school district guidelines are followed, students are allowed to meet. The following are some of the guidelines found in most school district policies: 1. Meetings must be conducted during non-instructional times. 2. Clubs must have a teacher advisor. 3. They must be voluntary and non-disruptive. 4. Meetings must be student led.
