While many Christian students view their college years as a time to simply attend a church and then move on, we eagerly extend an invitation to do more than that. We long for students to become part of our church family. In fact, the college community in which God has placed us is an integral part of our vision to “impact our community and the world by raising up countless university students and community members who are transformed by the Gospel and are serving others.”

Though we serve many students at Clemson, we welcome all area college students — Anderson University, Southern Wesleyan University, and Tri-County Tech — to worship with us and be involved in our ministries.
