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.
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.
This gathering takes place the first and third Thursdays of the month at 7:30 pm and is open to anyone. The first Thursday will be a Bible study and the third Thursday will be a time of Prayer+Worship. If you're a college student or young adult in Harrisonburg, you are welcome to join us for The Collective!
At least once a month we spend Saturday mornings as a family, making brunch and catching up on our week.
