The college ministries of Galloway UMC involve many members, many schools and their affiliate church related organizations all seeking to serve and be a part of one body, the body of Jesus Christ. As the body of Christ, we seek to provide every college student connected to Galloway with a place to be nurtured spiritually and physically as we encourage their growth as disciples of Jesus Christ in this world. We are connected to over 150 college and graduate students from 35 different schools including those attending colleges out-of-town whose home church is Galloway and those who are in the metro Jackson area. We support Millsaps Wesley Connexion which meets in the Susannah Wesley Dorm on Tuesdays at 11:50 am for a meal and holy Communion.
We send care packages twice a year to our college and graduate students and host annual gatherings at the end of summer and during Christmas break.
We seek to fully immerse our local college and graduate students in various ministries at Galloway, including youth ministry, children’s ministry, music and worship arts ministry, intergenerational Bible studies, and Sunday School.
We provide opportunities for students to engage in service both locally and internationally through Grace Place, Habitat for Humanity, Mississippi Blood Drives, Brown Elementary School, and Salt and Light Ministry in Honduras.
