A gathering for people who love & lead college-aged adults

College Ministry Collective

January 29-31, 2024
January 31-February 2, 2024


Our living hope. The hope of glory. Hope for tomorrow.

What are you hoping for?

“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness”
Lamentations 3:22-23

Let us acknowledge the Lord;
let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth.”
Hosea 6:3

“Weeping may tarry for the night,
But joy comes with the morning.”
Psalm 30:5b

CMC 2024 is centered around the word hope. What is hope? What does hope look like for each and every one of us? What does hope look like in the Bible and to Jesus? How do we experience hope in the world around us?

Join us as we dive deeper together at CMC 2024.

“I made connections with college ministry leaders last year and we reconnected this year. It's vitally important because you're on an island by yourself ... but in the end there are other people out there just like you.”

"Vitally Important"

Jeffrey McEwen

“I really do feel refreshed. I feel like I've been at youth camp for adults, and now I'm ready to go back and tackle whatever the Lord has next.”
