Moriah Ministries Mission

Moriah Ministries is locally and uniquely designed to serve the students at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan.

Barna research shows twentysomethings are the most spiritually resistant age group in America. Most of them pull away from earlier participation in the church, particularly during their transitional “college years.”  This troubling information draws us to the students of GVSU with a determined and heartfelt commitment.

The mission of Moriah Ministries encompasses these four distinctives:

Faith Building – Helping students as they establish and grow in faith through chapel, community church services, shared meals, Supersonic and caring mentoring.

All Access – Being available 24/7 to encourage and serve students through their transitional years at Grand Valley State University.

Life Coaching – Providing a life coach to serve each GVSU team; offering care, encouragement and support in the “game of life” to athletes under the direction and at the invitation of head coaches.

Culture Impact – Hosting service trips both here  and abroad enabling students to serve locally and in the world community.

Practicing a ministry of presence, serving students without discrimination, whether we are on campus, online, at a Lakers game, sharing a meal or on a service trip, our goal is: Encourage students as they make lifetime decisions and walk beside them as they develop and walk out their faith.
