Who We Are

In an age where we need to know what we believe and why, the College 
& Career Ministry looks to God's Word to inform a biblical worldview that will be helpful during the college years and beyond. 

The College & Career Ministry meets on Sundays at 11 AM in The Loft (2nd floor of Building B). Our college students first meet in a large group for solid, biblical teaching and then break up into smaller huddle groups to connect with one’s peers and build a strong community. Our Career Life Group is comprised of single 21- to 25-year-olds that are either attending grad school or starting their professional career. 

In 2022-’23, our Sunday morning study focused on Matthew. In the fall of 2023, we are focusing on topics relevant to today’s culture. Our goal is to develop Christ-like character so that by God’s grace, we can be counter-cultural to the world’s standards; therefore, we will be tackling gray areas, anxiety, and religious liberty from a biblical point of view. Then, in the spring of 2024, we will study the Grand Narrative of Scripture while learning to be Difference Makers.

To foster community, we provide a free lunch on the first Sunday of each month immediately following our College & Career Life Group. We also have a ministry called Home Away From Home, which provides an adoptive family from the larger church congregation that cultivates mentorship and support. 

Throughout the week, we offer smaller Bible studies during the evenings on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. While still biblically rooted and guided by a curriculum, these groups are discussion-based and aimed at assisting in applying Scripture to our everyday lives. In Fall 2023, the various groups will study Ezra & Nehemiah, 1, 2, & 3 John, or James.

Our church family also offers our students and young professionals many opportunities to serve within the church, our local community, and to the ends of the earth.
