12 Christian Clubs & Ministries to Check Out on Campus

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another.”

Hebrews 10:24-35

Eastern University offers a diverse selection of clubs and ministries for many areas of interests that students can be involved in. Creating a close-knit community is a top priority at EU, and students are encouraged to connect with each other over their interests and passions, glorifying God with their love for one another. Here are a few of the Christian clubs and ministries that I know would love to have you join!

Note: There are many additional clubs and ministries on campus beyond this list! Visit the Office of Faith and Practice website and the Eastern Clubs website to browse other opportunities.
