KC has three ministries on campus that welcome every student regardless of religious belief. These campus ministries offer events, free meals and life-changing opportunities to students.

Christian Campus Center
The Tri-C is a ministry that has students flowing in and out its doors throughout the week. Britt Davis directs the campus ministry which is located at 501 Nolen St. and is supported by the Church of Christ.
Students can visit the Tri-C on Nolen, and can also connect with the Bible chair through Facebook and its website www.cscoc.com/tri_c2.html.
Tri-C’s vision this semester is based on the scripture Nehemiah 2:18 which says, “I told them how the hand of my God had been favorable to me and also about the king’s words which he had spoken to me. Then they said, ‘Let us arise and build.’ So they put their hands to the good work.” Therefore, the focus this semester is “Let Us Arise and Build.”
The Tri-C offers weekly events, such as in-depth Bible studies at 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday, free lunches from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Thursday and night dinner parties at 6 p.m. every Monday. The Tri-C also provides hot cookies between 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Mondays and has a building that provides fellowship activities.
Davis said that one of the most rewarding things about campus ministries is bringing people together to experience Christ.

BSM
The Baptist Student Ministry is located at 809 Nolen St. This campus ministry has created opportunities to serve KC students. They can connect with the BSM through Facebook or simply by dropping by the BSM building during the semester .
The BSM offers weekly events, such as small groups at 3 p.m. every Monday, corporate Bible study at 7 p.m. every Monday night and free lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Tuesday.
The ministry offers a chance to be part of the International Student Retreat Nov. 2-4.
Shelly Webb serves as BSM director and feels that the vision for the BSM is based on 1 Thessalonians 2:8 which says, “We loved you so much that we delighted not only to share the Gospel of Christ with you, but our lives as well, because you became so dear to us.”
The BSM wants students to find their place not only at KC but their place in the Kingdom of God. There are more events and activities planned throughout the fall semester.
