At it’s root our congregation is a campus ministry congregation; a congregation that not only grew out of campus ministry, but that also cares passionately about campus ministry now and the spiritual welfare of students today. A campus church is who we are, and who we want to be. How could we leave our students, and the students to come, to fend for themselves? How could we not be here to deliver Christ and His Gospel, His Word and His Sacraments to them?

Our Aim

”To Know Jesus Christ and Make Him Known on Campus”


Jesus’ mission is our mission—to “seek and to save” those far from God (Luke 19) and to prepare God’s people for works of service to build up the body of Christ (Ephesians 4).


We carry out our mission by building up the Christian faith of those who come to us, bringing back those who are drifting from the Lord and bringing in those who do not know the love of the Lord.


The college group typically meets once a month for a bible study or devotion, followed by a social event. On special occasions, we take trips to area attractions.
