Campus Ministries Activities & Community

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.  

Devotional Guides

Campus Ministries provides the Friends University community with devotional guides for Advent and Lent.

Chapel is a time for the community to gather for worship, prayer and to explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, friends of the University and the Wichita community are invited to join us on Thursdays from 11 to 11:50 a.m. in the Alumni Auditorium of the Davis Administration Building.

Sundays @ 9

On Sunday nights, at 9:00 o’clock, we gather for our student-led worship service. You can expect raw, Spirit-led worship, prayer, and authentic community as students come together to seek Jesus and be challenged to live out faith on the Friends campus.

Mission and Service

Throughout the year, there are many opportunities for you to serve. Mission trips are offered for students to gain hands-on experience in a variety of ministry fields. Local service projects also provide the opportunity for students to work with non-profits, churches, and missional organizations..

Formation and Discipleship

Each semester there will be a wide array of options designed to help you grow in your faith, called Spiritual Life Credits. Students will earn credits by choosing between Bible studies, chapel services, and other opportunities to explore and engage in the Christian faith. In addition, Campus Ministries’ staff are here to provide 1-on-1 mentoring, discipleship, and pastoral care. 


Seasonal retreats are available for students who are looking to have an intentional time of prayer, worship, and fellowship outside of campus. Retreats are a great way to pause, connect with God in nature, and take a break from the busyness of college life. 

Wichita Area Churches

We’ve compiled a list of Wichita area churches to help students find a church.

The Lounge

Campus Ministries provides coffee to students in the Campus Ministries lounge every day. Stop by and strike up a conversation with one of our campus pastors or student workers. The Campus Ministries Office is in suite 214 of the Davis Administration Building.  


Have a prayer request? Our Campus Ministries staff is committed to praying for the needs of the campus, and invite you to share your requests with us by emailing

Opportunities to Lead 

Want to join the Campus Ministries’ team? There are several ways you can get involved:

Spiritual Life Assistants: Spiritual Life Assistants, known as SLAs, are student leaders that reside in the dorms and invest in the spiritual life on campus. They are to here serve students in their halls, lead Bible studies, and create spaces for Christian community. 

Worship Leaders: Do you have musical talents? Come use your gifts to help lead worship for chapel and Sundays @ 9. Be on the lookout for auditions near the start of the semester or ask our campus pastor how you can get involved. 

Student Workers: If you have skills in tech, video, graphic design, or event planning, there are positions to work in Campus Ministries. Stop by the lounge to inquire about what is available.
