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.
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.

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.
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.
Students are encouraged to be involved in a local church during their time at OUAZ. Information on a number of local churches is available
