About RANSOM

RANSOM is a diverse, student-led and family-like group of athletes and students spreading the message of Christ throughout the campus and community. Our activities include Weekly Worship Meetings, Innovative Discipleship​, Family Hangout and Community Service.  ​​​​​​

Our short term vision is for every student on campus will know Jesus and understand his or her identity in Christ. Our long term vision is to have the opportunity to influence and shape the landscape of Christianity on the college campus, urban settings, and beyond.​
