College Student Weekend

Jul 08, 2022 to Jul 10, 2022
This weekend event encourages and equips Anabaptists who are attending college and university.

How does your Anabaptism shape you as a college student?

How do your studies shape you as an Anabaptist?

Each year, we hold a two-day seminar to reflect on what it means to be a conservative Christian student at college. We talk about the issues raised at many campuses, hear from each other, and enjoy God's presence.

At College Student Weekend, we gather to explore our calling to humility and faithfulness in education. Attendees share their stories in small groups and pray for one another. Speakers, staff, and students mix for times of food, fellowship, and recreation. In the 42 hours we have together, we seek to nurture a faithful, reverent pursuit of learning that deepens love for God and equips us to serve his people.
