Campus Ministry is everything it means to be a university church as well as what we do in relationship with the Ohio State University. It is both intrinsic to our identity and it is chaplaincy. It is both location and advocacy. It is reaching out in love to our nearest neighbors – the students, faculty, employees, and administers – that city within a city next door.
St. Stephens is located right inside the OSU campus; to passersby, we might even look like a university building! This location is central to our identity; we minister to the campus because the campus is our local community. We also minister with the campus, because the OSU community is rich in wisdom and resourcefulness.
We wish to minister to and with the whole campus- students, faculty, and staff- but it is mostly students who actually live in and around campus, so we are particularly drawn to build connections with this city of young adults that surround us.
If you live, work, or study at OSU, we invite you to get involved with our campus ministries. We would like to hear from you- What are your community’s great needs? What are hopes for your community?
Services and Times
The new format for the Campus Ministry service meets on Tuesday evenings. Every week from 8:00-9:00pm, we will meet to pray, sing and meditate in the St. Stephen’s Sanctuary.
Students are also welcome and encouraged to join the entire congregation at Sunday morning services at 8:30 and 10:30am.
