Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2 (NIV)

MERGE teams are small groups of Campbell students (usually five to seven members) that conduct youth ministry weekends throughout the academic year at churches that host them. We would love to send a MERGE team to your church to lead a weekend full of Bible-studying, spiritual growth, practical mentoring, and fun activities for your youth.  We believe this is a great ministry that benefits everybody involved because the youth love interacting with college students that they can look up to as positive role models, and the college students love giving their time, love, knowledge, and energy for the sake of discipleship and love.  The team members are likely to vary in academic majors, talents, and denominational backgrounds, but they all share a desire to give their time and talents to the Lord and to the youth through this ministry. A typical weekend will begin on a Friday evening and include Bible studies, devotions, creative worship, drama skits, and indoor/outdoor games. Teams can also take leadership in Sunday worship if you so desire.

Our students are also available to serve as small group leaders for Disciple Now (DNOW) weekends that your church may be hosting.

Once you contact our office, you will receive further information about what a typical MERGE Team weekend looks like.  Registration does not guarantee that we can confirm your first choice of preferred weekends, but we will do our best to accommodate you and to find a student MERGE team leader to connect you with as soon as a date is confirmed so that you might begin communicating about the upcoming weekend with plenty of time to prepare.

If you have any questions about the MERGE teams that you would like to have answered before you decide to register, please direct them to Cameron Hunt via email at,or if you would prefer to speak on the phone, his number is 910-814-4336.
