Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM)
The Baptist Collegiate Ministry is a Christian student organization made up of college students from various backgrounds and walks of life. We believe that knowing and serving Jesus Christ is the highest privilege we have in life. Therefore we desire to live out Ephesians 5:1 by helping students to be imitators of God and to live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Campus Crusade for Christ
Cru at the College of Charleston is an inter-denominational, student-led group that exists to love the campus, help students grow in their relationship with God, and launch men and women into a lifelong adventure with Jesus Christ. We host a weekly meeting every Thursday evening and have many small groups that meet across campus. We also help reach other campuses in Argentina and Senegal every summer!

Campus Outreach (CO)
Our mission is "Glorifying God by Building Laborers on the College Campus for the Lost World." We seek to follow Jesus' model of loving the masses while investing in a few in order to reach the nations. This discipleship takes place through life-on-life relationships, as college men and women come to know Christ and then mature in their relationship with Him. Our desire is for our graduates to labor for a lifetime within their families and careers throughout the world.

Catholic Student Association (CSA)
CSA is a club for Catholics of all ages at the College of Charleston and the Citadel. The purpose of the club is to help Catholics to grow in Christ and to stay strong in their faith while away at college.

Fellowhip of Christian Athletes 
FCA is the largest interdenominational, school-based, Christian sports ministry in America reaching over 1.5 million people annually. It provides a positive peer group as an alternative to the negative pressures so prevalent in schools today. FCA is also a vehicle for teammates to influence others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to offer a different lifestyle to the worldly ways often found on our campuses and in sports today.

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IV)
Most simply put, we are a community of grace engaging all of life.
We are a COMMUNITY. A group of us is almost always better than just one of us. Specifically, we are a community of GRACE. We’re for each other. We love because we are loved by Father, Son & Holy Spirit. And this Love compels us to ENGAGE life. Love leads to action, not apathy. We are participants, not observers.  We’re talking ALL OF LIFE. Not just the good & easy  parts (although sometimes life is very good & easy). But, All. Of. It. For more info on how to get involved, when we get together + photos & more,. email 

Jewish Student Union / Hillel (JSU)
JSU/Hillel serves as the center for Jewish life at CofC and provides programs and activities for the larger campus community. JSU/Hillel hosts many events throughout the semester, including weekly Meet-to-Eats and Shabbat dinners, holiday programs, community service opportunities, and tons of social programming where Jewish students can come together and connect in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. There is something for everyone!

The Journey (Presbyterian)
The Journey is a worshiping community that offers students from all denominations, the spiritually curious, skeptics, and even Red Sox fans the opportunity to explore deeper questions of faith and philosophy while at college. We are open-minded, thoughtful, and committed to advancing the Gospel and glorifying God in our daily lives. The Journey is a unique atmosphere that seeks to make every student -- no matter what are his or her views -- feel unconditionally welcomed and accepted. Following every message we have Q&A (you can ask anything, really!) and table discussion with our peers.

Lutheran Campus Ministry (LCM)   Lutheran Campus Ministry at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church
We are a ministry of St. Matthew's Lutheran Church (ELCA) to the Charleston College community. We gather on Wednesdays at 5:45 pm for dinner, worship, and learning at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church at 405 King St, across from Marion Square.

Reformed University Fellowship
RUF is a Christian campus ministry committed to helping students develop a love for God and the world he created. We want students to develop hearts and minds prepared to think biblically so they are free to live with wisdom during the college years and beyond. Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) is committed to the truth of Christianity and the hope it offers the university and its students. We are the campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America, but welcome all students who are interested in wrestling with what they believe and how it affects their lives – both "convinced" and "unconvinced" alike. So if you have a sincere desire to ask questions and find answers about "true spirituality," you are welcome at RUF.

The Unitarian Universalist Club

The inherent worth and dignity of every person; 2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations; 3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations; 4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning; 5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large; 6.
