Ministry Partners

We believe the local church is a vital part of your walk with Christ in college. Through the ministry fair, main speakers, and your counselors, we hope this retreat helps new students experience the community found in Oxford through churches and campus ministries before stepping foot on campus. Take a look at our partners below!

If you are interested in becoming a ministry partner for this years retreat, you can contact our Head of Logistics at!

The Ministry Fair

The Ministry Fair takes place on the second day of the retreat.  This is a time when local churches and ministries set up tables and tell students about who they are, what they do, and when they meet.  Hopefully, students leave the fair with more of an idea about a church or ministry to visit and have traded contacts with someone there! Our hope through this is to help you get vibrantly involved in a local church or ministry early in your time at Ole Miss.


Main Sessions

At the retreat, you will get to hear from local ministers from a variety of churches and ministries. They will teach about about who Christ is and what it means to live for  Him in college.  We call these Main Sessions.  Before each session, we have the opportunity to worship with a band comprised of students from different churches in the area.  Our hope in this collaborative effort of so many churches and ministries is to help you see the unity of the Body of Christ in Oxford!
