The College Ministry at Graceland Baptist Church

Our Vision

The College Age season of life is when we transition from following our parents’ lead, to discovering and owning what we believe and stand for. Without grounded roots, it’s easy to wander, and find yourself somewhere you didn’t intend to be. Our heart for SHIP is to come alongside College Age adults in this season of life and make it one of Transformation. We do this as we GATHER around the Gospel, GROW in the Gospel, and GO because of the Gospel.

Details, Times & Location

SHIP is a community for College Age adults, from ages 18-25 years old, that meets in a Home Group on a weekly basis. Check out when and where below! In addition to this, on the 3rd Sunday of each month, we’ll come together for a Large Group gathering at 6pm. This will be in the Large Gym, found in the Family Life Center at Graceland’s New Albany Campus.

We also have a College Age Group that meets on Sunday mornings during the 10:30am service in Room 409 of the Family Life Center.

Home Groups - Leaders and Locations

Currently, we are gathering at the home of Gary & Dottie Clark to experience community with each other and to grow in our faith together.  To get connected to a Home Group, or if you have questions, please call or email Caleb Creel at 812-944-6448.
