International Churches of Christ

Origins

The roots of the ICoC trace back to the campus ministry movements of the 60s and 70s. Chuck Lucas and leaders of the Crossroads Church of Christ in Gainesville, Florida began a campus ministry built on a few basic principles.

  • Evangelize college students.
  • Expect them to read, pray, and evangelize daily.

Possibly influenced by the Shepherding Movement amongst Penetecostal churches, Lucas and other leaders began to disciple or shepherd new converts. At the time, this practice was involved regular, but informal meetings between a convert and an older member.
