Disciplemakers Vision & Mission
Disciplemakers in PA:
365 Science Park Road
State College, PA 16803-2215
MIssion and vision: DiscipleMakers is a Christian campus ministry based in Pennsylvania. Our goal is to raise up the next generation of leaders for the Church by training college students in Bible study, gospel-driven discipleship, and evangelism.
Connection with Christchurch: Colleen grew up in Saco, Maine, went to college in PA, and found Christchurch during a college break while still a student. She attended when home, became a part of the midweek women’s Bible study and, after serving as an intern, was commissioned for her fulltime ministry with Disciplemakers, the ministry through which she grew as a Christian while a student. She works on two of 12 college campuses where DM is present.
Prayer and other needs: Colleen is part of the staff of an internship program this summer at Penn State. She says: “This year, we have 18 students interning on campus and in the headquarters. This is a life-changing opportunity for these students, as they get to do hands-on ministry and build a Christian fellowship from the ground up. Staff are mostly there to guide and support them--they're doing the ground work of evangelizing and making disciples! It is an incredibly difficult and humbling experience (I remember my internship well...), but these experiences and opportunities to grow and step far out of their comfort zones will stay with them for years to come. We are equipping students to make disciples, and no matter where they go after they graduate, these lessons in God's power and faithfulness when we step out in faith will go with them.”

A brief history of Disciplemakers
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6–7)
