Compelled by Love
We value God’s love as the compelling motivation of our lives and believe that a true experience of His love leads to following Christ and no longer living for self.
Believing God’s Promises
We believe that the Bible is our only source for a true knowledge of God. We place a high priority on knowing and teaching the Bible and training students to study it for themselves and claim God’s promises.
Focusing on the Lost
We believe that man’s greatest need is Christ. As a ministry, we focus heavily on proactively and strategically reaching lost students with the Gospel of Christ.
Growing through Multiplication
We believe that ministry most effectively takes place in the context of relationships - as one person invests in or disciples another.
Our goal is not simply to gain a large following on campus, but to teach and train students to walk deeply with Christ and minister to others in their sphere of influence, not just on the campus, but also in the world and for a lifetime!
The Campus Outreach Augusta (COA) staff are responsible for raising their financial support.
We do this by giving individuals, local churches, alumni, and businesses the opportunity to directly support the Gospel going forth on the campus. All financial gifts go directly to each individual staff member’s support.
No Administrative Fees
A portion of the COA budget is given by First Presbyterian Church Augusta, including 100% of administrative expenses, facilities, and office spaces, which serve as a headquarters for COA.
Staff have a team of prayer and financial partners who give monthly to the COA vision.
All support is collected by COA and overseen by our Financial Administrator and Advisory Board. All contributions are tax-deductible.
