Hi, I’m Jarrod, Campus Life Director for Pekin. I'm the lucky person who gets to do this! My hope is for Campus Life to provide a safe and fun environment for PCHS students to connect with each other and with awesome adults in our community.
We are about relationships and meeting young people in the places they go to raise up life-long followers of Jesus. We are here for students to have fun, make friends, and talk about what matters to them. Campus Life engages students through our weekly events, out of town trips, YFCamp, and of course, tons of face to face time. We provide a balanced approach - physical, mental, social and spiritual - to give teens the skills and hope they need to live in a turbulent world.
Campus Life is part of an organization called Youth for Christ. YFC was founded in 1944 and now exists in over 100 countries with 20,000 staff and volunteers. Within YFC, we are ‘Campus Life’, a high school ministry; combining healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools.
Youth for Christ is in it's eighth year of campus ministry at Pekin Community High School.
