What We Do

What We Do

We collaborate with local churches and campus ministries to help connect incoming college students to Christ and to Christ-centered community.


We do this by launching 3-day, 2-night retreats before classes start that are led by upperclassmen and focused on living for Christ in college.

How We Do It

Tree Rings
We exist to help incoming college students... 
  • Be rooted in Christ       

  • Strengthened through Christ-centered community

  • Bear fruit for Christ's name on their campus
