  • Hospitality

    Community dinner

    Hospitality is about providing a sense of welcome to whomever walks through our door. It’s not an invitation to assimilate, but rather an embrace that invites people to come as they are. At the CA, we provide an inclusive, fun and supportive space that is a home away from home for students.

  • Faith & Exploration

    Prayer and meditation room

    Faith Exploration is about digging into what it means to call ourselves Christians, followers of Jesus Christ. It means processing things being learned, figuring out how other aspects of out lives connect with our faith, and growing in our understanding of how to live this faith out on a daily basis, and growing in our knowledge of Scripture.

  • Service & Advocacy

    Mentoring program service day

    Service and Advocacy is about living out God’s call to participate in Kingdom work, to actively seek to help bring about the kingdom of God here on earth. It is about being both a voice for the voiceless, and listening to those who are voiceless so we can learn what it is they have to say. It is about recognizing our place of privilege, and doing something to help make things a little more equal.

Why it matters


  • "Trust"

    There’s a chance that some of you have heard me say this before, but growing up, I could never do a trust fall. Like where someone stands behind you to catch you, and you lean back, trusting the will catch you and not let you hit the floor. It didn’t matter if your hands were 6 inches behind me or halfway to the floor, I couldn’t do it.

  • "Are we ready to Follow Christ?"

    Let me tell you the story of a young man, who was given the name Giovanni at his baptism. Giovanni was born into a wealthy and large family; he had 6 siblings. His mother came from a well-to-do family herself, and his father sold high-end fabric, specializing in silk.

  • "A Place to Belong"

    For queer people looking to join Christian communities, it can feel like a game of Minesweeper. You try your best to feel your way around the board. But if you make a mistake and say the wrong thing to the wrong person, it’s game over.
