College should be a time of personal, professional and spiritual growth and development, and our students often speak of how much they have grown, particularly in their faith. These organizations are a part of the myriad opportunities to minister to the community or worship the Lord alongside hundreds of other students. Our campus ministry's organizations provide just the right places for you to grow in your faith, discover your calling, build meaningful relationships, and participate in a community marked by service and abiding respect for one another.
Contact CampusMinistries@gcc.edu with any questions or to connect with the student leader of one of these organizations.

Topics include arguments on the existence of God, other religious views, and the epistemology and psychology behind beliefs. The club strives for open, honest, and intellectually stimulating discussion while considering the rationality of different beliefs. Meetings are perfect opportunities for students to openly discuss questions about God and Christianity with peers in an non-dogmatic setting. Members strengthen their ability to share and defend their beliefs and gain a better understanding of Christianity.
