Students at the University of Jamestown have the opportunity to widen their horizons as they meet with others on campus to learn and grow together.
There is something for you to join whether you want to be strengthened or help strengthen others by encouraging them through acts of service. Students are welcome to start their own organizations, or join an existing one.
Grace on Campus
Grace on Campus is an official student organization of the University of Jamestown. Our purpose is to help students, of whatever denomination (or none), grow in faith in an environment where, “doubts are ok, questions are welcomed, and people are free to come as they are.” We not only tap into the Bible’s wisdom, but the rich spiritual heritage of Christianity going back 2000 years.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit Christian ministry seeking to eliminate poverty and homelessness by providing homes to deserving families. Homes are built with the hard work of volunteer laborers, donated materials and monetary donations.
Every year a group of students and advisors travel out of state to help build homes through this organization. In the past, University of Jamestown students have spent their spring breaks lending a helping hand in the warm states of Mississippi, Washington State, Texas, Georgia, New Mexico and Arkansas.
Throughout the school year, fund raising is done to help pay for the student’s trip expenses. Habitat for Humanity provides a great opportunity to meet new people and help others in need while enjoying a different part of the country during spring break!

Cru – Ignite
Cru – Ignite is a student-led worship service that involves praise through a variety of outlets, including music, prayer, speakers/a message, small group activities, videos, and discussion groups. We meet Tuesday nights at 9:33pm in the chapel.
Cru – Ignite has an affiliation with Cru and participates in the retreats of the upper Midwest region including Fallapalooza and TCX.This mission statement defines the Cru – Ignite student leadership team that plans the meetings and events: God has called us to share the Good News of salvation. He has called us to glorify Him as well as strengthen, encourage, unite and ignite the Body of Christ through the leadership of the Holy Spirit.
Fallapalooza is a retreat for the Rough Rider Region of Cru including Minot, Dickinson, Bismarck, Valley City and Jamestown. This retreat is held on a weekend in October at Crystal Springs Bible Camp. This is a time to reconnect with God and to be built up so that we can reach out to others on our campus.
TCX is a conference organized by Cru for college students in downtown Minneapolis, MN each year from December 28th through January 1st. Hundreds of students come from the upper Midwest region to stay in the downtown Hilton Hotel for this amazing conference. A student worship band and inspirational speakers lead students in worship each day. It’s a great way to start off the year and a new semester! Cru – Ignite students have an opportunity in the fall to fund raise to help with the cost.
There are a myriad of Bible Studies that range from professor-led in their homes to student-led in the residence halls.
