We are a community of college-age men and women who do life together here at Tech with a common goal and interest: connecting with God. We are not just surviving as a Hokie. We are fully alive, expecting God to heal, change, and use us to impact Virginia Tech, the marketplace, and the world with His transforming love.

Come Invent the Future amidst a movement that brings lifelong friendships and incredible opportunities to grow in self-discovery and God-discovery.

Life Groups

It is absolutely vital to get into one of our “Life-groups”. They are small (5 to 12 people), yet have a BIG impact on your life! One of the best ways to strengthen your relationship with Christ is through studying the Bible in a community setting like a Life Group. Your journey of faith will be greatly strengthened as you participate weekly!

You will deepen your friendships, have one-on-one mentorship, experience the power of prayer, accountability, and have tons of fun!! Don’t just go big, go small and join an Life-group today, it’s never too late! And if you want to get more involved, check out our impact teams below!
