Local Churches

We are blessed to have about 25 churches in the Ankeny and Des Moines area where our students can serve. Every semester all our students serve in some way in a local church. This church ministry is an important part of training here because it gives students the opportunity to put into practice what they learn in the classroom.

On-Campus Ministry

Each year we host a youth event called FaithFest with nearly 1,500 area youth, an annual Global Reach Conference, a pastor’s conference called Refresh with 200 pastors and spouses, and a Christian fine arts competition known as MAACS with 500 students from across the Midwest. Each of these events requires an army of student volunteers. Ministry opportunities abound, right here on campus!

Music Ministry

Students participating in one of our music ensembles – including Faith Chorale, Chamber Choir, Faith Handbells, Faith Community Orchestra, and instrumental ensembles– have opportunities to tour regionally and internationally, sharing their gifts with a broader audience.

International Missions

We also offer opportunities to serve in ministries overseas as well. Our Arriba Program allows students to spend 11 months in Chile, South America, serving alongside missionaries while completing a full school year. We also offer summer missions trips across the globe to places like Africa and Asia.

It’s time for you to experience Faith! Take a tour of campus, hang out with our students, and meet faculty. Set up a personal visit or come with friends in a group visit. We know you will enjoy the warm reception and community feel that can only be found on a Bible college campus!
