Reaching the Campus

Shandon College is the college ministry of Shandon Baptist Church and an on-campus student organization that exists to serve college students in Columbia. Our desire is to create a community that is actively reaching the campus with the gospel, growing in our walks with Jesus, and being sent out for a lifetime of missional impact.  

Here, everyone finds a place to belong.

Welcome Week

For the first week of the Fall semester, we have fun and inviting events on campus to welcome students, plug them into our ministry, and connect them with one another. 

Check back for our 2024 Welcome Week schedule. 

Fall Retreat

Each September, our ministry takes a trip to the mountains of NC where we worship The Lord, grow in Christ together, and have a great time. This is open to all students!

Student Leadership

Shandon College exists to make disciples who make disciples on the campus and around the world. Our Student Leadership Team is a group of committed college students that lead our D-Groups. This team is the primary way we will accomplish this mission. We are not looking for perfect people, but people who are faithful, available, and teachable. Apply below!
