STAND Campus Ministry
Students Taking a New Direction, or STAND, is an inter-denominational ministry designed to help students explore Christianity and help those who are already followers of Christ grow deeper in their faith. So whether you are interested in just checking it out or building some close friendships and growing in your relationship with Christ, come and join us.

The group sings praise and worship songs, prays together and has a local pastor, campus minister or ministry leader share a message from the Scriptures. STAND is active in serving the community and partnering with local churches, along with frequently gathering for socials.

The professional campus minister overseeing the group is sponsored by the United Christian Campus Ministry Council and the Coalition for Christian Outreach. The group is founded on the four pillars of:
