College Ministry

An active and growing College Ministry is an important part of our life at FBC Augusta.

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.

Weekly Schedule

Tuesdays at 7 p.m. – Off campus Bible study at the home of David and Ruth Crews.  Dinner is served!

Sundays at 10:00 a.m.  – Sunday morning Bible Study on the 2nd floor of the Walton building Room 201.  Breakfast is served!

Off Campus Bible Studies
