Office of Christian Outreach Opportunites
The Office of Christian Outreach (OCO), as part of the Student Development division, exists to influence, develop, and mobilize student learners to become witnesses that help to transform cities and nations for Christ and His Kingdom. OCO student-led ministries involve experiential learning, worship, and service opportunities that actively involve Kingdom words (evangelism, prayer, testimony) and Kingdom works (mercy, justice, hospitality, compassion). These ministries promote the OCO’s dedication to learning through service, expanding on the learning that is taking place in the classroom in unique ways.
The Office of Christian Outreach is located on the ground floor of the Todd M. Beamer Student Center.
