Campus Harvest started in 1990 as a way for the local church to get involved with campus missions. Ron Lewis, founding pastor of King’s Park International Church in Durham, North Carolina, started the annual student conference with the mission to “Revolutionize Campus Ministry by Mobilizing the Local Church.”
To date, this multi-denominational service organization has helped equip countless churches and campus leaders. The vision has attracted tens of thousands of university students and countless pastors to the annual Campus Harvest Student Conference each Spring. Students from more than 300 U.S. campuses and multiple nations have been inspired with hope for a Christian student movement backed by supportive local churches.
