Our college and young adult ministry is an outlet for those in the midst of becoming independent adults to pose their questions about faith and all areas of life. Whether you are pursuing a degree, working towards a career, or still figuring it all out, our College and Young Adult ministry can help you connect and grow. We have multiple events throughout the year that promote free discussion, fellowship and fun. Contact Michael McEntyre if you have questions about any of our events or activities.
Sunday Night Bible Study
From September- December and February- May our College and Young Adult Ministry meets on Sunday Nights from 5:30-7:00pm on the 3rd floor in the Student Suite to explore our faith and grow in our walk with Christ and each other. Join us for dinner and discussion this semester.
Campus One on One
Sometimes a college student just needs someone to talk with, someone to listen, or someone to buy them lunch. Whatever the case, our College and Young Adult pastor, Michael McEntyre, is available. Call (573-442-1149) or email ( ) to set up a time to meet.
