Our mission is to provide AU students with opportunities to discover their own path to spiritual growth. So, within the Office of Christian Ministry (OCM), you’ll find a variety of ministries— all of them welcoming — that offer diverse ways to worship, such as participating in regular church or smaller group services or by engaging in religious study, spiritual retreats, service projects or mission trips. 

Almost every night of the week throughout the year you can find a religious meeting that offers love and support to all who attend. It is our hope that by attending such meetings you will forge lifelong friendships and discover new dimensions of faith that expand and deepen your spiritual awareness and practice.
