Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.
Connecting the Church to Reach the Campus for Christ
This club is for Christians to help deepen their relationship with God and to also spread the gospel with others who don’t have a relationship with Christ yet. Perks: Students will be able to deepen their faith and be able to find comfort in knowing other Christians who are trying to be a light in a world of darkness.
Why First Priority?
There are almost half a million students in the public middle and high schools of southeast Florida. Statistics suggest that over 90% of these teens do not know Christ, which demonstrates the urgent need for us to meet them where they are – the campus. A majority of Christians state that their decision to follow Christ was made by age 18. We could be only one generation away from catastrophic faith abandonment if we do not equip students to fulfill the Great Commission. That is why, since 1998, First Priority has been so passionate about connecting the CHURCH to reach the CAMPUS for CHRIST.
Where is First Priority?
We have almost 200 clubs across seven counties, from South Florida to the Treasure Coast. In addition, we partner with over 120 local churches, 300 volunteers, and thousands of students. To find a club at your school, visit FIND A CLUB. To reach every student on every public middle and high school campus in southeastern Florida with the Gospel… this is our First Priority!
