The College Ministry of Harris Creek exists to help college students actively engage with the local church.

About College Ministry

In our world today, it is far too common for college students to disengage from the church, if not fall away altogether. That’s why our primary goal for college students is to help them stay actively engaged with the local church during these formative years. What does an actively engaged student look like? It means they are engaged in the community by participating in a Life Group. It means they commit to investing their time by serving the church internally. Finally, it means they live on mission by serving others in their sphere of influence.

What does a typical Life Group look like?

Our Life Groups are led by two Harris Creek College students who are passionate about making disciples. Each week at Life Group, groups discuss the past Sunday’s sermon as they talk about how to apply it to their lives, and spend time growing together through prayer and community.

What are some other ways I can get connected to Harris Creek?

Beyond showing up on Sundays and at our College Ministry events, there are plenty of ways to get connected to the church. We have a ton of college students who volunteer in all areas of our church as well as our Intern Program for students who feel passionate about ministry.
