“We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain."
Our small group meets together on campus to discuss the Bible and talk about life. Small groups are where life happens and where you will likely meet some of your very best friends.
Missions are a big deal to us. We offer an international and a US missions trip option during our Spring Break. We also support and send missionaries all over the world.
Every Sunday at 11am you are invited to join us for a time of powerful worship, a relevant message, and an opportunity to connect with friends. Many of us attend Freedom Church on campus in the Kiehle Auditorium and would love to connect with you there!
We are more than a ministry - we are a family. We love to have fun, eat food, and do life together. Join us for a game nights, fall & winter retreats, pickup sports, or a backyard bonfire.
Our campus is very diverse. We believe God is sending students to our campus from all over the world to meet Jesus. We love connecting with international friends.
