Missional Communities

Coed student-led communities encourage depth in relationships, promote spiritual maturity that keeps Jesus at the center, and just make life more fun.

Cafe Crawls

Get caffeinated while visiting local coffee houses around Kalamazoo. Meet new people, hang out for hours, and remember everything the next day.
