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.
Campus Ministries provides the Friends University community with devotional guides for Advent and Lent. Links to the current devotional are listed below.
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.
Learn more and view a list of events on the Chapel page.
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
“Engage the local community through service. Campus Ministries partners with organizations such as Bread of Life for food distribution and ICTSOS, an organization that works to end domestic sex trafficking in Wichita. Announcements for ongoing opportunities for community engagement projects can be found in the Campus Ministries Lounge and on Campus Ministries’ social media sites.
Go with Campus Ministries on an immersion trip and work with non-profits and churches around the country and around the world. Immersion Trips are an opportunity to partner with others in service, learn about national and global issues, and see the ways that God’s kingdom is moving around the world.
“Campus Ministries takes students on retreats. These retreats are an opportunity to join with other students in rest and recreation, to have to connect with God, and to learn and engage in spiritual practices and disciplines.
