At Campus Ministries, our mission is to build community and growth within Friends University by leading and encouraging students to live transformed lives in the grace of God.
As a student who chooses to be involved in Campus Ministries, we encourage you to re-imagine your faith in the context of your college experience. This means identifying some of your core narratives, learning how to tell your story and considering who you are becoming. We provide an environment for you to lean into God’s love and goodness, and grow into the person you want to be as a follower of Jesus.
Affirming that God is good, we take time to take care of our bodies, minds, hearts and souls.
Looking at the people and world around us, we see through new lenses the beauty in the ordinary.
Believing in the strength of community to heal and transform us, we intentionally build connections with others.
As followers of Jesus, we are invited to participate with God in the world with generosity and hospitality.
Join students, staff, faculty and the community for intimate times of worship with teaching and student-led worship music. Snacks and time for conversation follow the worship service.
Fall 2015 Cornerstone events take place at 8 p.m. and University Friends Church on the following dates:
- August 27
- September 24
- October 15

Or you can listen to the Cornerstone sermons online at friends.edu/cmblog.
Reconnect with the Bible and learn how to see the world as God sees it. Contact the Campus Ministries office for study dates and times.
Local Service Projects
Impact the community with service projects like serving Thanksgiving dinner to those in need, and partnering with the Race for Freedom 5K, hosted by ICTSOS, an organization that works to end domestic minor sex trafficking in Wichita.
Work alongside various outreach programs located in Kansas City that serve those who are homeless, refugees, in poverty or recovering from trauma.
Recharge away from campus with a fun time of learning and resting while growing in your faith.
