What We're All About
Engaging The Campus
We love Dickinson College and desire to make a visible difference in the quality of student life. We seek to find ways to serve and improve the campus community and its sustainability initiatives. We also provide “Investigative Bible Discussions” for anyone interested in learning more about Jesus Christ. We welcome the questions, objections, and struggles of people honestly searching for the truth. We are committed to responding with honesty and compassion rather than hostility and condescension. Skeptics, seekers, and the curious are all welcome.
Exploring The Bible
Through The Bible we learn about the beauty of God’s character, the life-changing power of His promises, the freedom of forgiveness, and the adventure of living in relationship with Him. We exist to assist people interested in learning more about the essence of Christianity, which is not found in morality or philosophy but in the story of the historical person, Jesus Christ.
Experiencing Redemptive Relationships
If you’re looking for the perfect group to get involved with on campus, don’t come to us! But if you want to experience how the gospel of Jesus Christ can heal relationships, spur people toward authentic community, provide ample opportunities to practice forgiveness, and restore broken people, then we are the group for you. Our desire is to be a people increasingly characterized by love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Captivating The Heart
Everyone is captivated by something, whether it is approval, success, or intimacy. We believe those various “captivations” will leave us restless until the one we were made for - God - captivates us. We were designed to find our fulfillment, rest, meaning, and value in the person of God himself. Christianity is about a paradigm shift to a new central captivation with the beauty of Jesus Christ.

Michael and Courtney McManigal
While in college Courtney and I (Michael) were impacted by a message far greater than anything this world offers, the message of Jesus' love for us on the cross. We were both deeply impacted by the letter to the Ephesians during dorm studies our freshman year. As we looked at the Bible we saw Jesus' transcending love and we wanted to know more. College became quite a different chapter in our lives than we both anticipated! God moved in and we wanted others to know Him more too!

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the best news a guilty sinner could ever hope for. Before I became a Christian, I looked for life in sports, girls, parties, and popularity. None would quench my thirst!
I want to tell people about God's love for them and how He displayed that love in the person of Jesus Christ. I hope to impact students with the gospel message and see their lives transformed by it.
