College

Helping college-aged young adults learn about Jesus and experience the abundant life He offers

About College Ministry

For many young adults, the years just out of high school are the most formative of their lives. They are exploring new opportunities, making big decisions, and building lifelong relationships. It is also a time when many are looking for answers about God and who He really is. Our college ministry exists to teach young adults about Jesus and equip them to walk faithfully with Him, serve Him, and love others well.
