To find out how to reserve a table and what the requirements are for your specific campus, talk to someone in the student life or campus organizations office. You may also be able to use the tabletop display at a picnic table or some other space that's available for public use without a reservation.

What should you do if you find a Person of Peace?
As you meet new people and start spiritual conversations you are constantly searching for People of Peace: spiritually open, relationally networked, and action-oriented people who will join you in launching this new community. When you meet someone who seems like they may be a Person of Peace, use the Call to Mission Tool to help them discern their calling on campus and map out their network of connections.
Watch this short video to learn more about who you're looking for and how to recognize People of Peace on campus.

A short Bible study and conversation guide based on Matthew 9:35-38 to help interested students discern God's invitation for them and map out their network of connections on campus.
Tips for using this tool during campus outreach
Keep this in your back pocket as you're having spiritual conversations. If you meet a student who identifies as "Following" or who seems especially interested, ask if they have a few more minutes to continue the conversation. Then lead them through the front and back of the Call to Mission Tool.Download Call to Mission ToolOrder Call to Mission Tool
