We’re looking forward to an exciting year of college ministry here at Commonway. As the new College Pastor here, I’m amazed at the response and excitement students have for me being here. I can’t help being excited about what God has in store for us this year. We’re excited to have a strong lineup to get us started:

college

  • The Point: We will have a weekly Tuesday night meeting on campus in Robert Bell 125 at 9:00pm with the rest of Ball State CCO (called The Point). This will be a time of deep worship and prayer, to meet with God and be united as a body, and help students seeking a church home find one.

  • Adopt-A-Student Kickoff: Sunday, September 27 at the Innovation Connector. The Adopt-A-Student program is an excellent way to get connected to families or individuals within the church. Our kickoff lunch will provide time for students to meet the couple or person with whom they’ve been paired. Sign up today.

  • Fall Retreat: September 25-26. Coming together with students from other Indiana colleges, the CCO Indiana fall retreat will be a great overnight trip focusing on identity, and how knowing Jesus changes everything about ours. Students can register at https://ccoindiana.eventbrite.com.

  • Fall Camping Trip: October 16-17, Hueston Woods State Park. We will be taking a trip to beautiful Oxford, OH for an overnight camping trip. You won’t want to miss this… and for the camping-inept, you’ll be right at home with me (Joe). We’ll have some resident experts along for the ride to help us! Let me know if you’re interested!

As always, for any college students looking to connect on a more personal level, reach out to me at joe@commonwaychurch.com. Looking forward to a great year!
