There are over 90,000 students across 15 campuses in Northern California and Southern Oregon, with many of those campuses lacking even a single, significant Christian witness from a local church or para-church ministry. In 2014 Liz and Chris Thrasher Wheatley discerned a call to prayerfully plant ministries on these campuses focused on discipleship, leadership development and evangelism — starting with just two of the campuses and a few staff, but now empowering a spiritually healthy team of 11 staff across nine campuses in Chico, Humboldt, the Siskiyous, and the Rogue Valley.

We believe every student can learn to hear God’s voice for themselves, through prayer and a love of inductive scripture study, and will experience breakthrough in their space on campus as they obey Him. Tangibly this takes place in every corner of campus, whether it is starting a Bible study with their baseball team, praying with their Latino friends in the Cross Cultural center, or doing outreach in the middle of Fraternity Row. Thank you for all the ways you have supported Jesus’ ministry through us, and please join us in praying for this generation of college students at they seek revival in the North State and Southern Oregon!

Peace and joy,
