COMission exists to develop college students into gospel-centered leaders who are vital to the church locally and relentless in making disciples globally.
1. We SERVE the campus and each other with our lives, since Jesus gave His life for us. (Mark 10.45)
2. We EQUIP students with the truths of the Gospel, show them what it means to follow Jesus, and invest in them to be leaders. (1 Peter 3.15/ Ephesians 4.12)
3. We SEND leaders that follow Jesus will change the world. (Matthew 28.19-20/ John 20.21)
1. We Serve Students Where They Are At:
We want to come alongside other students and student organizations in making USFSP a better place.
2. We Equip Students to do the work of the ministry:
We want to give answers to common objections towards Christianity and we want to share reasons for why we have hope in Jesus. We also believe that students should be equipped to know, and teach others, how the gospel affects every area of life.
(1Peter 3.15/ Ephesians 4.12)
3. We Send Students Out To Become More Like Jesus:
Discipleship happens best in the context of mission. Jesus gathered his disciples so they could learn from Him and they were sent by him. These Jesus followers made more Jesus followers. This started a movement that has impacted the world forever. College students are the greatest missionaries for the college and after they graduate, we want to help them be missionaries wherever they go.
(Matthew 28.19-20/ John 20.21-22)
4. We Are Joined With A Local Church:
We are supported and directly connected to the local church. Students serve, are equipped, and are sent out by the local church. Prayer, oversight, and finances are all provided by the local church. Gulf Coast Community Church (www.GCCC.net) is directly connected to COMission. (Acts 13-14)
Whatever spiritual background you may have, we invite you to join us to see what we are all about, to partner in serving the campus, to consider the claims of Jesus with us, a to get equipped to live out your faith.
Campus life can be challenging. At the 7:02 we...

Suffering, Different Views, and the Christian Perspective.

DNA Groups are small groups on campus that commit toward following Jesus together. These groups meet up at least once a week to discuss what God is showing them, to become equipped in disciple-making, and to strengthen each other in living out faith.
We meet throughout the week on the USFSP campus and at other locations.
Whether you live on campus, commute, or you just want to get involved in some way, we also meet off campus throughout the week.
We gather together often to celebrate, get equipped, and to form deeper relationships with others who love Jesus and want to make Him known on the college campuses of St. Pete.
OUR HOUSE GROUPS MEET EVERY THURSDAY FOR THE SPRING SEMESTER.
