College & Career


We love that we are a church in a college town. Throughout our history we have been privileged to have young adults active in the church, including those in college, grad school, and in the workforce.

On Sunday mornings we have a Sunday school class that serves as a place to get connected. Led by the pastoral staff and various members of the church, each week we have food, fellowship, and time to study the Bible.  If you would like to learn more please contact us or checkout our Facebook page for weekly updates.

The RUF campus pastor for JMU and the surrounding schools is Joe Slater who, prior to starting RUF at JMU, was on staff here at Covenant for many years.
