OU is a less than a mile from the University of Mississippi, just a short walk down University Avenue. Our college ministry exists to be a home away from home for students.

At OU, you can experience intergenerational community from babies to senior adults and interact with professionals working across all the sectors (business, politics, law, health care, education, ministry, non-profit). We want to help you build a network that can help you launch into who God is calling you to become!

Follow @ouumc on Instagram for updates on events and opportunities for Spring 2022.

Here are some ways you can get involved this year:

Sunday Morning Services

Join us at 9:00 AM for Modern Worship or 11:00 for Traditional Worship on Sunday mornings. Services last about one hour, and it’s a great opportunity to not only meet other college students but also worship and serve alongside an intergenerational community. 


Serve Teams

We invite all college students to not just attend, but serve at OU as well. On these Serve Teams, students are able to make friends and use their leadership gifts to serve others. Teams include hospitality, production, OU Kids & OU Youth. Check out all the ways you can serve at OU here.


OU College Dine and Devo

We offer weekly dinner and devotional for college students, with the goal of promoting both spiritual growth hand a life-giving community. We meet weekly on Sunday nights from 6-7:30 beginning January 30. Meetings will be at 410 South 11th Street (Ministry Resident house across from OU). Students can park in the lower parking deck of OU and walk across the street to the house.

Contact Caroline Burlingame with any questions!


Church Leadership Co-operative Internships 

Have you ever had that feeling burning inside of you that God desires to do something with your life? Maybe you know what it feels like to be confident that God is preparing you for something important but confused and anxious about what it’s all going to look like? Us too. Five years ago, OU was instrumental in creating The Church Leadership Co-operative, theco-op.com, a growing network of diverse college students who are discovering what leadership looks like in the local church and exploring God’s call on their life. We offer a ten-week summer internship for college students who are exploring faith and leadership in the church or market place.

Global Mission Trips

We want to give students the opportunity to use a portion of their college experience to serve internationally on a global mission trip. This is a great opportunity for students to meet new people, grow in their faith, and serve others. We take trips to Costa Rica to serve our ministry partner Rice & Beans. If you want to us to keep you in the loop as plans unfold for 2022, email Pastor Chris, cmcalilly@ouumc.org.
