Campus Ministries at OUAZ

Campus Ministries at OUAZ

In today’s increasingly challenging and complex world, higher learning in a Christ-inspired community is more essential than ever. If God has brought you to OUAZ, it is not solely to be in a Christian community, nor is it only to be a student. It is for both experiences as they are foundational for the way God wants to equip you for a life of serving Him and others. It is OUAZ’s desire to encourage you toward increasing spiritual growth, offer spiritual care, provides opportunities for discipleship-focused relationships, and to increase understanding of the relationship between scholarship and discipleship.


Ottawa University Campus Ministry Office exists to cultivate an environment in which faculty, staff and students learn to love Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.


Whether you are a student hearing the Gospel for the first time or one who wants to grow deeper in your faith, OUAZ encourages students to develop a Christian perspective of truth and life.


We have multiple ways for you to connect with God and pursue spiritual growth. In all our discipleship opportunities a student is known, loved and engaged in spiritual practices centered on the Gospel.

Spirit Life

Part of what makes OUAZ unique is our Professional Growth Days that occur weekly on Wednesday. The opening session is referred to as Spirit Life. During this hour, the OUAZ community comes together for a time of fellowship as they take part in a speaker series where they will be inspired by testimonials, motivational speakers, in addition to speakers on timely key topics. Attendees will also be led in singing by a praise and worship band.

Worship Team

This team is made up of students who are dedicated to learning more about the nature of leadership in Christian worship. This team meets weekly, and runs our worship nights, as well as helping in Spirit Life, retreats, and special events.

Partnership Ministries

Our Fellowship of Christian Athletes meet weekly to encourage our athletics population in huddle groups to grow in Christ.   Young Life is also a vibrant partner on campus meeting weekly.  Young Life College offers a fun, accepting community to be a part of while exploring or deepening your faith. 

Small Group Bible Study

Out of an active student body our small group Bible Studies happen organically, both on and off campus.  Meeting weekly with the Director of Campus Ministries the campus ministry students are mentored and prepared to lead these Bible Studies.
