College Ministry

From the time you enter the doors of Johnson Ferry, the College Ministry encourages community.  Roots meets every Sunday morning at 9:50 am. to hear and discuss the Word of God. This is an excellent opportunity for you to grow your faith and connect with each other followed by contemporary worship at 11:15 a.m.  Schedules during the college years call for flexibility and the need for community is great. We make the effort in small groups, social activities and summer mission trips to give everyone the opportunity to become involved and connect with each other.

Sunday Mornings

Every Sunday morning we gather and grow in Christ through hearing the Bible taught and then discussing the message in small groups.  This is the place for you to come and connect with other college students in the north Atlanta area! Join us each Sunday at 9:50 am. in the Landing (room 272/274) and then come to worship with us at 11:15 am. in the new Activities Center.

Mission Trips 


Dates to come!

This trip occursduring Spring semester and we partner with Living Missions Peru.  




2015 dates to come!

This is a co-ed trip led by Thomas Nelson, his wife Heather, and the College Ministry Girls' Associate, Casey Murphy. For the past three summers we have headed to Zimbabwe in early June to work with our friends Chris and Norma Ferguson.  We stay at their wonderful ranch, Morning Star, and do ministry in the Motopo Hills region. Some of our ministry activities include: vbs/children's ministry, school visits and local education enrichment, construction/repairs, agricultural work/outreach, home visits, a community movie night, and working with Morning Star's micro business that brings women from the community to make products that are sold in their "tuck shop" with all proceeds going back into the community. This is an amazing place full of people who will steal your heart.
