A message from the Campus Minister:

There are a lot of discoveries to be made in college. Most will discover new passions within the classroom that can turn into careers. Many will discover new levels of competition on the field and on the court. Some will discover soul mates, life partners, and lifelong friends. The prayer of Campus
Ministry is that you will discover that God is absolutely crazy about you and is wanting to be in a relationship with you that will transform you, inspire you and call you to serve God and others.

Campus Ministry offers a space of grace as you make these discoveries. We provide student-led ministries for you to have opportunities of service, worship, community, and fellowship. We hope that no matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you will be open to God taking you to the next level. Come discover God, the ways of God and God’s people, and the transforming love God through Campus Ministry!
