Serve

Christmas Impact is a wonderful opportunity during the Advent season for you and your family to serve and learn more about our Impact partners. This year you have the opportunity to serve through a virtual experience, getting to know a different partner each week, praying for them and joining them in the mission that God has called them to.

Step 1: Choose one of the four Christmas Impact Serve Experiences. 

Step 2: Watch the video and participate in the prayer experience. 

Step 3: Make a plan for completing the serve experience.

Next Generation: Campus Christians

Campus Christians at Pittsburg State University is a non-denominational organization reaching out to believers of all church backgrounds. Our events and programs range from a weekly worship service and in-depth Bible studies and discussion groups to lunches, road trips and coffee houses. Our students have a wide variety of interests and involvement on campus, and it is our prayer that not a day goes by that the students of Pittsburg State are not influenced and encouraged by the ministry of Campus Christians.
