WHO WE ARE
Northway College Ministry exists to Reach, Equip, and Launch college-aged students.
We want to Reach college students.
We want to get their attention, get them to visit, and get them to stay. Our goal for this ministry is to create a an environment where college students feel welcomed, connected, and have a place to call home.
We want to Equip college students.
We want students to deepen their relationships with God and His people, and we want to deepen their understanding of His desires and His Word.
We want to Launch college students.
We aim to send them out with the desire, capability, and the confidence to carry out the Great Commission in this season of life and wherever life may take them afterwards.
GET PLUGGED IN
We gather on a weekly basis in a small group setting as a part of Northway’s Home Teams. In being a part of a Home Team and meeting regularly, you will have the opportunity to grow in your faith and deepen your relationships with others.
Leaders: Sarah Knapp, Angel Schindler, & Abbie Holmes
Time & Location: 7:00pm @ Downtown Macon
We will be studying Miracles of Jesus By Jennie Allen. This study explores all four Gospels. Discover the ways Jesus healed, provided for, calmed, and resurrected the people he encountered. This is about believing in the power of God who can accomplish anything. For college and grad school age ladies.
Leaders: Ryan Knapp, Zach Schindler, & Coy Gregory
Time & Location: 7:00pm @ Ingleside Area
We will be studying The Book of James led by Francis Chan. Francis Chan unpacks the dense truth contained in the book of James in front of the iconic backdrop of San Francisco, the city where he lives and ministers. He works through James verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life.
Can’t make it during the week, or you just want more? We also gather every Sunday morning during the 9 o’clock service for a co-ed Bible Study. Email Ryan Knapp for more information.
Home Away From Home Program
HAH is a program created with the purpose of pairing college aged students in the middle Georgia area with Church families from Northway. Our goal is to give the students a sense of “home” even though they are away from their families.
Our host families will provide opportunities for a few meals throughout the semester, be a resource if difficult circumstances arise such as car trouble, sickness, etc., and just be an encouragement for their students.
If you are a student and you would like to join a Home Away from Home family, sign up here!
Drawing Closer to God | Drawing Closer to People
We come together every month for a college worship gathering we call Proximity. Proximity is an opportunity for college students to come together to fellowship, worship, and study God’s Word.
we must fight
For righteousness | for intimacy with God | for passion | for our brothers and sisters
“Sin demands to have a man by himself.” -Dietrich Bonhoeffer
We must fight in light of grace extended through Gospel. One of the best ways we can fight sin is through community. That’s why we have created a resource we call Fight Clubs. Fight Clubs are teams of 2 or 3 people that meet on a regular basis with the intention of holding one another accountable.
“As iron sharpens iron, one man sharpens another.” -Proverbs 27:17
“And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” -Ephesians 4:12
Want to join a Fight Club? Find a fellow Believer or two, sign up on our link, and start meeting! Simple as that. Why sign up? When you sign up, we consistently follow up with encouragement and resources to help your team fight well!
Enjoy our 9 Step Accountability resource!
