Campus ministry provides a myriad of ministry opportunities

Our mission statement for campus ministry includes our desire to do three things: seek the lost, strengthen the saved, and nurture Christian leaders. In order to accomplish this, we offer a wide range of CUW ministries which are organized into branches. Each of our 50+ student leaders and co-leaders of a ministry are part of the Campus Ministry Leadership Team (CMLT). These dedicated students organize and lead the numerous groups you can see below. We also have student coordinators of each branch who work with the Campus Pastor and other professional staff in Campus Ministry to ensure the needs of students are being met.
