Grace on Campus

Grace on Campus is an official student organization of the University of Jamestown. Our purpose is to help students, of whatever denominatin (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

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, led by the Chaplain, 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 Mississippi, Washington State, Texas and Arkansas. Throughout the shcool 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!Official Habitat for Humanity Website: www.habitat.org/
