Our college program meets regularly during the summer. During the year, we offer a few opportunities that enable those students in town, or home for vacations, to continue to grow in their faith.
Covenant’s college small group is unique in that we prioritize relationship building; this is not a Bible study. We meet every Sunday from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Starbucks on 24th Street. At all meetings, we discuss our personal life experiences from the past week, good and bad, and help each other through our successes and failures. If you are a college student in or around the city of Austin and want to truly live through life with other students, contact Noah Genovesi (UT Austin ’19) at (423) 596-4968 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have a heart for college students? The transition from high school to college is a big one and most Covenant youth move hundreds and even thousands of miles away from home each year to begin this new life chapter.
Covenant’s College Outreach Ministry aims to support more than 120 Covenant college youth in prayer, community and resources as they make this important transition.
- Prayer group: Intentionally pray for a student(s) on a specified date each month (calendar dates and topics for the prayer will be provided)
- Partner group: Text specific topic information to a student(s) on a specific date each month (content themes and dates will be provided) along with praying for this student. We will match men to men, women to women. (The students who receive these texts may want to build a relationship in terms of asking questions or submitting a specific prayer request)
- Correspondence group: Non-texters send cards on specified dates to those students who provide a physical mailing address
College Ministry Outreach Kick-off Event is Sunday, Dec. 13, at noon (after Contemporary Service). We would like all volunteers, college students and their families to gather after the service to introduce the new ministry, meet each other and build this new community. We launch the program in Jan. 2016. College students and parents: We need your contact information. Please send current information to email@example.com.
