College Ministries

__title__

GRaD is a movement of EPC College Ministries to Gather, Resource, and Develop EPC leaders to engage and transform today’s college and university culture—one student and one campus at a time.

“The Revival that God sent during the Reformation was born in the University.” 

“Many young people find their time on campus represents the most spiritually formative period in their lives.”
