Connect intentionally forms relationships with people on the Bryan hill to demonstrate the love of Christ. Connect with people’s names, faces, and stories, get outside of the Bryan bubble, and see the harvest at your doorstep. Contact: Angela Schimpf and Joseph Starkey
Pals brings at-risk children in the Dayton community into mentoring relationships with Bryan students. This unique opportunity teaches Pals (younger and older) what lifestyle evangelism truly is.
Prison Ministry regularly visits female inmates at the local jail to share friendship, prayer, and encouragement. Contact: Hannah Shipe
Project HOPE is a student-shaped ministry that seeks to serve the homeless. We join with local organizations in Chattanooga and Dayton, building relationships with the homeless and gaining perspective into the plight of the poor. Contact: Jeremy Rardin
Senior Adult Ministry makes weekly visits to local nursing homes, where we interact with residents through music, hand massages, and one-on-one conversations, and look for ways to bless the nursing home staff. Contact: Kristin Jager
Students for Life is dedicated to valuing life of all ages and spreading this value both on- and off-campus through education, inspiration, and love. We partner with the Women's Care Center of Dayton and other off-campus volunteer efforts. Contact: Annie Prescott

Testify is a creative movement and drama ministry that meets every Sunday night. We seek to worship God and challenge our audiences to live out their faith as we perform for church groups and community events. No experience necessary! Contact: Justin Jones
Tutoring works with local elementary and secondary students on a wide range of subjects, either at the local YMCA Family Center or one-on-one. We love tutors with a heart for kids who need homework help. Contact: Olivia Eanes
Young Life exists so that every adolescent will have the opportunity to meet Jesus Christ and follow Him. We accomplish our mission by praying for young people, going where they are, building personal relationships with them, and winning the right to be heard.
This year, Bryan partnered with Preemptive Love Coalition to provide life-saving heart surgeries to four Iraqi children. Students initiated and led a fundraising campaign in response to a chapel message; they were matched by faculty and staff for a total contribution of $2800.
