“I was talking with a dad on Tuesday night whose daughter was involved with a campus ministry, even leading a small group, and after 3 years out of school shows no sign of or desire for life with Christ. The young followers who become shepherdless sheep after leaving our universities are everywhere.”
– Tom Swift, Captain, USNR (Ret)
After graduation and relocation to a new city, many alumni experience discontentment, loneliness, and disillusionment. With an overly heavy emphasis on community taught throughout their college years, these alumni have not developed the simple but important habit of pursuing God Himself in an ongoing, growing relationship.
Real life doesn’t provide the neat and compact structure afforded by college and campus ministry.
We’re here to advise and encourage these graduates, establishing them wherever they land that first job.
START REVERSING THE TREND…
As college seniors and alumni go on job interviews, get engaged to be married, build local friendships, and engage in the workforce, they need to see Christ modeled through the life of a seasoned believer who has done all of this before.
We believe these relationships make all the difference in keeping graduates on course as they follow the Lord entering the real world, and we’ve seen it proven time and again.
Experienced, Seasoned Believers
Our trusted confidants point alumni to the Lord’s power and presence, offering perspective and a place to process real life issues.
Focused on Life AFTER Graduation
We walk alumni through everything they can look forward to during this season, focusing on their personal relationship with the Lord.
Graduates can move anywhere after graduation — from back to their hometown to international locations. We work to find a Local Mentor wherever they land.

finding that first trusted friendship in my new location. – Andrew N.
