Connexion is our university student ministry at ECC. We’re all about connecting students in the church so we can grow in Christ together.
Connexion consists of four elements during the school year:
- Connexion Worship: 1st Wednesday of each month at ECC. Students from all over campus join together in the ECC Chapel at 6:00 pm for a free dinner, worship with the Connexion band, and a message specific to students.
- Thinking about Faith: 3rd Wednesday of each month (specific times & locations TBA at CXIU.org). Thinking about Faith gatherings feature Christian speakers engaging topics related to faith in Christ, academic disciplines, and the big questions of life.
- Mentor Groups: Students join with an adult mentor and 4-6 other college-age men or women for once-a-month meetings to build friendships, pursue growth in Christ together, and provide accountability. Students and mentors commit to being a part of a group for a 1-school-year term and meet at a time and location chosen by the group. Sign up for a group!
- Social Events & Service Events: Opportunities for students to serve together or just hang out are held once a month. Refer to CXIU.org or the church bulletin for current information.

What a student had to say about Connexion:
“The community here, the intentionality, the honesty and raw emotion, all the wonderful staff, the welcoming love of God shining through the church, the Holy Spirit moving throughout the sanctuary–it all drove me closer and closer to God.”
“I am so thankful for the many ways this church serves and has softened my heart to daily die to self and take up His cross.”
“…in this church I was accepted and cherished as a daughter of the King.”
“I came here five years ago trying to learn what being a Christian is really all about, and now I leave with my foundation for all of life as my personal relationship with Christ, my savior and best friend.”
