While college is an exciting time in students' lives, it can also feel isolating to be away from family, community, and church. We want students to continue building their faith and connection to church no matter where they are attending college. To do so, we connect with our college students in three ways throughout the year:
COLLEGE CARE PACKAGES
Who doesn’t love mail?! Students receive a package at their school address (twice a year, during Advent and Lent) as a reminder they are loved by God and our church community. We pray these packages are a source of spiritual encouragement and refreshment, as well as a way to provide relevant information to students while they’re away.
TRIPS & OASIS RETREAT
The winter Oasis Retreat provides a relaxed atmosphere for spiritual renewal and connection up north at the beautiful Grand View Lodge in Nisswa, MN. Dates for the winter 2019 retreat are January 2-4. Online registration will be open in late October.
COLLEGE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
Our paid summer internship helps college students experience life in ministry. Interns work alongside staff to plan and carry out all summer camps and events for Kids', Student, and College Ministries. With questions, contact Matt Ferris; 952.920.8515 x207.
COLLEGE BIBLE STUDY
Join other college students every Tuesday at 5:00PM to talk about scripture. Your coffee is on us! For weekly locations, check out our College Ministry Facebook group.
