Where It All Started


Campus Outreach, founded in 1978 at Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, AL, is an interdenominational ministry targeting strategic college campuses in the United States and throughout the world. The vision of Campus Outreach is to “Build Laborers on the Campus for the Lost World.”

Campus Outreach Indianapolis was established in 2003 and is under the authority of Midtown Church in Indianapolis, IN. Currently we have staff at five universities across the state of Indiana. Campus Outreach Indianapolis represents one franchise of many around the United States and Internationally. Click here for more information about Campus Outreach globally.



The Vision


Building laborers takes many resources, but the returns on the investment are immeasurable. Our prayer is that students will graduate who are not only equipped to build their careers, but also the kingdom of God. This is done by:

  •  Reaching college students with the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  •  Building college students into mature disciples of Christ
  •  Equipping college students to be laborers for Christ
  •  Mobilizing college students into their sphere of influence



The college campus is a strategic mission field. College students are at the crossroads of life, making lifetime decisions and moving out to influence the world. This is the perfect time to challenge them to live according to God’s Word. In light of this, Campus Outreach Indianapolis (COI) is committed to building laborers on strategic campuses.



The goal is world evangelization. We must mobilize these laborers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world. Our vision is that trained graduates would provide leadership in every sphere of influence (the church, medicine, community, business, education, missions, etc.) at home and around the world.
