Campus Outreach is an interdenominational ministry whose vision statement is “Multiplying
Christ-like Leaders.” The three areas we love and have a desire for are:
    - To see a Jesus-centered, Spirit led movement of God at UM
    - Reaching those who do not know the beautiful, life changing news of the gospel of Christ
    - And developing leaders who are trained and equipped to walk with God for a lifetime to
        impact and influence those around them.
We meet in Comer Auditorium on Campus on Wednesday nights at 9 PM.

Catholic Campus Ministries
        St. Thomas the Apostle Student Center, located just three blocks from Campus (Highland

take time with friends. We also offer informational/religious topic days and retreat days. Each

and enjoy a “home-cooked” meal, which parishioners from St. Thomas prepare. We hope to see
you there!
