A4C is led by a full-time campus minister, an associate minister, and several student leaders. Our officers work as liaisons to the different groups we are responsible to: the President and Secretary/Treasurer keep us connected as a registered student organization on the University of Arizona campus, while our ACMF Board Student Representative speaks for student interests on our governing board, the Arizona Campus Mission Foundation (ACMF). The Student Ministers assist our campus minister in planning events and lessons that embody the four branches of our ministry under Christ.

Andrew is currently a freshman at Pepperdine University, but he is joining us in Tucson for the year. He is a double major in both religion and mathematics. He also enjoys musical theatre and In-n-Out Burger. He doesn't know what he wants to be when he gets out of college, but he is open to suggestions. Andrew would also like to let you know that A4C is so important to him because they are devoted to sharing and teaching the Gospel with college students.
I'm a sophomore at Pima Community College. I'm a Vocal Music major I want to sing county when I get older. When I'm not singing I like to ride my bike and bake. My favorite thing to bake french macaroons. I like A4C because it helped me find my place in the church and helped me build my confidence. The people are friendly and really inviting
My Name is Samantha Stracy I am a first-year college student at Pima Community College I am undetermined on my major.
This is my first year as an A4C student leader. I'm quite dorky and very interesting to talk to. My favorite thing to do right now is to learn about music. One item on my bucket list that has been on the list for a while is to learn to surf.
