Who we are:

First College exists to glorify God by helping students know and follow Jesus. Our vision is to see students lives radically transformed by the gospel.

College is an extremely foundational time in a person’s life. Our desire at First College is to come alongside college students in order to help them develop into mature followers of Christ while also helping them discern God’s will for their lives both in the present and the future. We accomplish this goal through several different methods as listed in our mission statement: Gospel-centered worship, community, service, and outreach. This is all done in an effort to bring God the most glory.
