Fall is full of opportunities for students to worship together, serve the campus and the community, and show Jesus to the campus!
It's hard to believe, but it's already here: Classes at the University of Illinois begin 2 weeks from today! About 400 new freshmen will step foot on campus for their first year of classes and in addition to questions like "How do I get to the classrooms in Brookens?" or "Will my icard work at Starbucks?" (the answer is yes!), there will be some other questions, maybe buried a little deeper, but still there. Questions like,
"Is anyone going to think I'm valuable?"
"What is my life going to be about?"
"Do I have anything to offer the world?"
Christian Student Fellowship is a place where we hope students will find those answers. (See, we've already helped with your coffee addiction!) . We believe that all of us were created by a God who loves us and wants a relationship with us. But humankind started looking elsewhere for meaning and love, and that just led to a place many in the world find filled with frustration and pain and emptiness. CSF believes that God wants to bring his children back to that original plan for relationship. CSF is all about helping students find their way back to God. We hope you'll join us in that this Fall!
Students, parents, local churches, and community partners from CSF's first year (1993) until now, gathered to celebrate what God has done in 25 years of campus ministry at the University of Illinois Springfield. CSF's 25th Anniversary Fundraising Banquet was held last Saturday at Erin's Pavilion in Springfield, and was a night of stories from students, alumni, and staff. THANK YOU for so many of you who attended, gave generously, and celebrated with us. God is doing great and mighty things!

It is hard to believe that God has been using the ministry of Christian Student Fellowship to help students find their way back to Him for 25 years! Hundreds of students have been discipled while on campus and sent out to impact the world for Jesus. CSF has alumni in elementary school classrooms, court rooms, accounting firms, on the mission field and more. They are continuing to be disciples that make disciples wherever they go. Join us for an evening of sharing stories about what God has done and what He has in store going forward. This evening will help fund that critical work.
Christian Student Fellowship
is a place for students at the University of Illinois Springfield who are on a spiritual journey. Whether you're just starting out or you've been headed this way for awhile, we want to help you find your way back to God!
