The best years of your life.
Your college experience will likely be some of the best years of your life. These years set most college grads on the trajectory that quickly becomes "the rest of my life." So, it makes sense that you want to make the most of your college years, live it up and experience life to the full. We get that.
We also know that many college students experience a great disparity between what they hope their college years to be and what the "typical college experience" ends up giving them. College classrooms only address a student’s intellect, but don’t necessarily lead to great friendships or help in areas outside of academics. As a result, students look to more than the classroom to complete their ideal college experience.
But the social environment of many campuses often leaves college students with a shallow pool of "friends" who are really little more than "drinking buddies." This leaves many who dive headlong into that typical college scene dissatisfied at best, and greatly hurt, abused and used at worst. So, is there a place that lets you experience life to the fullest while on campus?
We contend that a campus church can be such a place.
Our churches not only provide a place to connect with other college students and create memories that will be some of the best of your lives, but they also allow you to address all of your needs: relationally, spiritually, emotionally and professionally. After all, you are setting a trajectory for the rest of your life. That is why finding a place on campus that helps you to explore spirituality and your own personal development is vital.
Church may not seem like that place to you. We understand. But you haven’t experienced our churches yet either. A church that is custom-built for college students makes a big difference. A difference that you have to see to believe.
So why not see if we have a church on your campus and come check it out? It is just a couple hours on a weekend, but it could surprise you and be well worth the time. Or see how one of our giant national events could be the spiritual injection that your college years desperately needs. If you are a current college student or preparing to go to college soon, visit our Find A Church page and consider checking us out the first weekend you are on campus for a Sunday morning service.
College church. These will likely be some of the best years of your life.
I've seen people breaking free from addictions. I've seen people experiencing love - true, genuine, unconditional love for the first time in their life at this church. And I've never seen that before!
