The 2011 MAC, Mid American Campus Retreat will change your life like nothing you've experienced before! God eagerly awaits every opportunity you give Him to revolutionize the way you see reality. Not only will you have the chance to grow in your knowledge of God and His Word, this event will ignite your heart with passion and enthusiasm for the Creator of our Universe. But it's up to you to open your mind, as well as your heart, to the realities of life. Life is God's way of ministering to you. He will go to the ends of the Earth, and give up His own life to see you prosper. The question is, do you have the courage to accept it?
The campus movement of the International Churches of Christ has been connecting students from across the globe through the ICMC conferences. Now with the launch of our new integrated Facebook page, www.facebook.com/icmccampus students can stay connected year round. With the progression of social media come opportunities to not only grow but strengthen the Kingdom of God worldwide. This site gives students a place to discuss the ICMCs happening globally as well as organize rides, find roommates, set up dates and follow up on relationships.
From 300 in San Antonio in 2005 to 2100 in Chicago in 2010, our International Campus Ministry Conferences in the US have reflected a global resurgence in the campus ministries of the International Churches of Christ with the spirit of "Here Am I, Send Me!"
In 2011, as 30 ICMCs occur around the world, the US students will share in two events to make it possible for even more to attend. Check out the details that have just been announced for the ICMC US East which is taking it Deeper and the ICMC US West which is taking it Higher.

On Valentine's Day, February 14, 2008, a disturbed gunman killed six stiudents in a classroom at Northern Illinois University. One of them was Gayle Dubowski, a disciple in the campus ministry of the Chicago Church of Christ whose parents have been faithful disciples since their college years.
Joe Dubowski recently published a book sharing their grief and God's help. He also has enrolled at Northern Illinois University pursuing a counseling degree to help others with their grief. The anniversary of the shooting spurred a number of media reports. Here are some of them:
