College and Career is the Young adult ministry at McKernan Baptist Church. We seek to be a place where 18-25 year olds can get connected into a godly community and be provided opportunities to grow as disciples of Jesus. We want each young adult at C&C to grow spiritually, make your faith your own, enter into your identity as a disciple, and have fun. We meet almost every week (Saturday nights) with different types of events for the purpose of facilitating relational depth both with God and with other believers. You are welcome to come to our events whenever you can.
Whether you are single, dating, married, in school, out of school, or working… C&C can be a place for you to belong. If you aren't sure about where you would fit, we encourage you to come and check it out, meet some of us, and get a feel for the group. We are sure that if you give it time, you will find that you fit right in.
We understand that the pressures of being a student can be pretty intense. Because of this, we have structured our ministry in such a way that will allow you to connect when you have time. If you can only come out a few times a month we will welcome you with open arms. At the same time, if you want to be involved in a group of people seeking to do life together in consistent Christian community, we have opportunities for that too!
A large part of who the College & Career ministry is are missional communities. In their most basic form, missional communities are essentially small groups united on mission together. They are groups of people (10-12) who have committed to doing life together and see the kingdom of Heaven active in an area of mission. In our case, we are seeking to reach out to the University of Alberta, the McKernan Neighborhood, and Whyte Avenue. These groups will meet together weekly in the hopes that they will feel like a family taking part in the purposes of God together. We will be launching missional communities in October of 2013, so please check out that portion of our website so you can be a part of this exciting opportunity at McKernan Baptist Church.
What we Do
College and Career is an official ministry of McKernan Baptist Church. Our heart is that every young adult (student or not) looking for a place to belong in community and grow as disciples of Jesus would have that opportunity. Because of this, there are a few different types of events and programs we run to create space for you to know that you belong. (There is more going on but this site is currently under construction.
