With active local college campuses, our college students are comprised of both students who have grown up at FBC Augusta, along with many who have made Augusta their temporary home while in college.  David and Ruth Crews and David and Nancy Keel direct the college ministry.  Activities include weekly off campus Bible studies, fellowships, and retreat weekends.  We hope to have you join us.
