Students, transformed by encountering Jesus, transforming their campus, society, and the world.
Our mission is to inspire and equip students to become passionate lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. We pursue this by nurturing the growth of student–led, missional Christian Unions on every campus.
whole–life Gospel mission (sharing God’s love and the good news in words and actions, in Ireland and the world)
whole–life Christian discipleship (following Jesus and prayerfully depending on his grace in every area of life, for all of life)
dynamic engagement with the Bible (committed to understanding it well and being shaped by its truth in all of life)
developing a Christian mind (engaging biblically with all aspects of our studies, our culture and our world)
unity in diversity (being united in the Gospel, allowing diversity on secondary issues, and showing love in everything)
student leadership (at the local level)
serving the church (by training and equipping all students to be members and leaders)
prayer in everything
How this is worked out practically in our CUs is based on:
“the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.” – 2 Timothy 2
It recognises that young leaders can be multiplied through good training It captures all we are currently doing, and all we would like to do over the next 5 years.
It is about the Message: Students knowing and understanding what they believe.
It is about Maturity: Successive generations of students being trained in Christian living and leadership.
It is about Mission: Students reaching students with the good news of God’s grace.
