We are a dynamic group of people that are passionate about our relationship with Christ and others. We are a ministry that specifically reaches out to college students at Middle Georgia State's 5 campuses. We are funded by the Cooperative Program through the Georgia Baptist Mission Board and through gifts from local churches and individuals.
