Eastside College

Eastside College is a place for students from Harrisonburg’s many college campuses to come together. This ministry of Eastside Church strives to connect students beyond their specific school or campus ministry. It’s a place for us to unite under Jesus and grow in relationship with God and others. Our mission is to be a spiritual family that is rooted and united in Christ Jesus and a place where college students and young adults come together to grow in relationship with Jesus as we pray, learn, serve and worship together. The vision for college ministry at Eastside is to develop a sustainable and replicable missional community that creates whole-life disciples of Jesus Christ.

Weekly Prayer

Eastside College hosts three prayer times each week. We meet on campus at EMU and JMU to pray for students, faculty, staff and for every individual to experience transformation with Jesus. Thursday mornings, we pray for the ministry of Eastside College and Eastside Church.

The Collective

This gathering takes place on Thursday nights and is open to anyone. It’s a time of worship through fellowshipping with people from different campuses and ministries and the studying of scripture together. Typically we discuss the sermon from the previous week, but it’s accessible to anyone, even if you missed Eastside’s service!


At least once a month we spend Saturday mornings as a family, making brunch and catching up on our week.
