Non-Profit for Church Planters & Church Plants
At Jesus4Students (J4S), we intend to help start churches and provide existing church plants in university areas with funding for staff, SEO optimized websites and training in outreach/marketing strategies that prove effective on college campuses.
Hi, I’m David Butler, the young dude on the left, and founder of Jesus4Students. The Lord gave me a passion to reach the next generation for Himself a number of years ago. So in 2006, I started Christian dating advice website as an attempt to biblically and relevantly address their needs. The site still gathers tens of thousands of visitors worldwide on a monthly basis.
Pursuing His vision further, in January 2010, I left my secure career of 26 years in Family Court to be a church planter and licensed pastor through the C&MA church planting movement. Starting out at my own dining room table, in Fall 2010, the Lord used me to launch Oasis Church. Hundreds of people have come to Christ through this church plant, and in 2017 the church was blessed with its own building. Is God amazing or what?
In Fall 2015, the Lord refined this vision to reaching students located on college campuses. Believing that God honors faith filled risk taking, I arrived on the Rutgers University campus in New Brunswick with nothing but a box of Bibles.

I started this stand alone collegiate church organically by growing a team of students, and empowering and equipping them to take on leadership roles. Students love to take ownership of things, if we only give them the chance!

You can help make an eternal impact on the next generation of leaders by giving to this cause.

I get so much joy working with Generation Z students at Rutgers University, and have a passion to help churches reach them in universities all over the country. What’s funny is they love me and I love them, but when we first started ministering to them on campus, I soon realized they did not “get” …
