Office of Christian Ministry

The Office of Christian Ministry exists to provide opportunities for AU Students to discover their own path to spiritual growth. Religious life at AU is an amazing and affirming community of love and support where life-long friendships are formed and new dimensions of faith are discovered and lived-out.

 Almost every night of the week you can find worship or study options on campus as well as service projects, mission trips, and spiritual retreats spread throughout the year. Each ministry within OCM is unique, and new faces are always welcome.

Ways to Worship (WELL, Newman, & FCA will be available via ZOOM or Facebook Live as well as live.)
