College Ministries



While everything you do at Messiah will have a faith dimension, it is the particular goal of the College Ministries office to provide specific opportunities to focus on your spiritual life. These opportunities range from wilderness discipleship trips to puppet ministry, playing an instrument in Chapel to singing in the gospel choir, inner city tutoring to intentional community living.


Spread your wings, stretch your faith and nurture your soul. Check out some of the opportunities listed on this page.


Through complementary men's and women's small groups and ministry efforts as well as a monthly large group gathering, Koinonia is designed to be a place where students can easily find a place to plug in, can participate in a ministry that is relevant to their concerns, and can be challenged along with their peers to grow deeper in their faith. Koinonia is a campus-wide ministry; anyone from any part of campus can come by themselves or with some friends and join a small group of their choice.
