Southeastern Synod Youth and Young Adult Ministry

Campus Ministry in the Southeastern Synod

 

Do you know a student heading off to college somewhere in our four-state region of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, or Tennessee?

Are you a student heading off to college, and wish to make a connection to a campus ministry or a congregation near your school?

Then please click the image below to make a referral for yourself or someone else.  All connections are appreciated.

(***BE SURE TO GET PERMISSION from the student before sharing their information.***)

(CLICK IMAGE TO START YOUR REFERRAL TODAY!)

As we receive this input, we will either connect the student to the campus ministry connected to that campus, or we will share what congregations are closest to that campus.   

We especially wish for you to make a referral if the student has just graduated high school and is moving away from home for the first time.  This is a critical year for your student and we wish to be of assistance, if we can.
