College Campus Ministry


College is a time of transformation, exploration, and growth. By its support of campus ministry, the West Virginia Conference supports college students as they grow, learn, and serve. Through involvement in campus ministry, students form lasting relationships, experience community, and have opportunity to worship as they grow in discipleship. Campus ministries offer mission and service opportunities, vocational discernment and leadership development as students become Christ’s hands, feet, and mind in the world.

Our conference currently extends its reach to nine campuses, through these campus ministers and congregations. You can help students form relationships by connecting them directly, using the contact information below.
