Live in Christian Community

The Campus House is a great place for Bloomington college students to live. Our mission is to help students pursue authentic faith and build intentional communities while in college. To do this we build up our students to send them out, train them in truth, and encourage them to be a blessing, ask the tough questions, and do life together.

As the hub of CSF's ministry, the Campus House is a common meeting place for various events throughout the ministry. This also conveniently allows students to have instant access to the CSF Staff and fellow Christian students.

Living at the CSF house was by far my best college experience. I was able to feel the love, support, and friendship of a smaller community within the huge campus of IU. The people I lived with at CSF are still some of my best friends to this day, and I will always cherish the fun and faith filled memories we are able to hold on to.

CSF was an integral part of my college experience. Being able to live in the Campus House and start my college years with a built-in support system of people of faith played a large role in my attending IU in the first place. Having older guys in the Campus House who befriended me, kept an eye on me, and mentored me shaped my time on campus immensely.

My passion for the ministry and passing on the legacy that directly benefited me in my early years led me to continue to live in during my upperclassman years and serve as the Student Ministry President for CSF in my junior and senior years. This legacy of investing in the next CSF leaders is one that will change the ministry, the campus for years to come with ripple effects throughout the world as CSF students graduate and move into their careers.
