The aim of West Park’s College Ministry is to help college-age adults (18-25 years old) love God, love people and impact the world. Here are some ways we do just that.
Thursdays, 7:00 p.m.
We believe that college students have great potential for impact, and we think this is best done through serving the church, the community, and the world.
At West Park – many of our students enjoy serving right “at home.” Some of the best places for college-aged people to serve at West Park are in our children’s, middle school, high school, and worship ministries.
In Knoxville – we also provide opportunities to reach into the community. More details on this throughout the year.
Around the World – participating in local and global missions may be the most life changing opportunity afforded any college student. Each summer, our College Ministry serves with one of West Park’s missionaries to share the love of Christ with the world.
Other College Events
Passion – started by Louie Giglio, Passion is a growing movement of college students seeking to live for the glory and fame of Jesus Christ. In addition to other Passion projects, each year Passion hosts a worship gathering featuring some of the most dynamic worship leaders and Bible teachers in the Church today.
Spring Retreat – during the spring semester, we like to get away for a weekend to simply be together. We’ll head to a cabin in the mountains to relax, play, share, worship and grow. These weekends always prove to be a highlight of the year and a much-needed break.
Short-term mission trips – join us on a journey you will never forget. Spend time ministering on the frontlines, living among the “least of these” and seeing what God is doing outside of Knoxville, nationally and globally. STMTs are generally held in the spring and summer.
Activities – in addition to Passion, fall and spring retreats and mission trips, our calendar is packed with many weekly and monthly activities. We’re always looking for an excuse (Ultimate Frisbee, pool party, all-nighter, Christmas party) to hang out with one another.
