Campus Ministries

The Office of Campus Ministries seeks to develop a broad range of opportunities for students to worship, grow as disciples, evangelize, be involved in ministry, and fellowship.  It is the aim for students to not only go on mission trips but to be on mission on campus, in our community, throughout our country and around the world.

"The Gathering"

This is our theme for 2016-17.  It is based on Acts 2:42-47, "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.  Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.  All the believers were together and had everything in common.  They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.  Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.  They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.  And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
