University Student Ministry
About Our Partner
Mekane Yesus Church
The University Student Ministry of the Mekane Yesus Church (EECMY) is committed to helping students follow Jesus Christ to spiritual maturity so that they can be Spirit-filled servants of Christ in their world, their work, their church, and their families...for a lifetime. EECMY launched USM in the early 1960s. The initial focus of the ministry was making students disciples of Christ irrespective of their denominational affiliation. After the fall of the communist regime, the Church established her own University Student Ministry under the Department for Mission and Theology of the Church at the national level. In collaboration with the EECMY congregation closest to each campus, USM facilitates leadership development and Christian growth conferences as well as Christian education activities. Seminars led by different experts are also held. The groups reach out in service to others, share the good news of the Gospel with friends, and join together in seminars and conferences that sharpen their vision for Kingdom living. Many USM graduates are actively developing new fellowships and planting new congregations.
Because of the work of University Student Ministry, hundreds of Ethiopian students come to faith in Christ each year and hundreds more finish school and go to work all around the country, equipped with a vision and skills to reach their communities, country, and the world for Christ. We receive scores of encouraging testimonies of lives that have been touched and changed by this ministry.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $15,000 for training events, seminar support, and coordinators’ travel.
