Mariners College exists to inspire college-aged individuals to follow Jesus and fearlessly change the world. If you’re college-aged, come join in and be a part of all that God is doing in and through us for his name and fame!

What is college-aged?

Does it matter which college I go to?
Not at all! Everyone is welcome.

Is this group only for those in school?
No, its for anyone and everyone college-aged.

I’m a graduate student, can I attend?

Current Series

Jesus invites us to an abundant life. But many Christians (while claiming to know the truth about Jesus) are anxious, stressed out, fearful, and overwhelmed. What are we missing?

Dallas Willard once remarked that in order for Christians to experience the life Jesus gives, we must not only embrace the truth of who Jesus is, but the way Jesus lived.

When we see the way Jesus lived, we find that he exercised certain habits that were central to the way he functioned before God the Father. This series aims to excavate and apply these habits as those who are growing into the image of Jesus and his ways so that we might experience the abundant life He promised.

Join us for “Mariners at UCI” on Thursdays @ 8P on February 13, 20, 27 and March 5 as we explore this series together.

COLLEGE - Connect Groups

Life works best according to God’s design, and God wired us for community. Joining a connect group is your first step to building authentic relationships, strengthening your faith, and impacting the world around you with the love of Jesus.

In connection with Thursday Nights Mariners @ UCI service, group life will consist of intentional conversations and informal hang-out and activities.

Groups meet either on Thursdays from 6-8p or Sundays from 1-3p. The first meeting will be held on the UCI campus, Physical Science Classroom Building (PCSB) Room 120 following Mariners @ UCI service and the rest of the meetings will meet off campus. Your group leader will let you know the location during the first meeting.”
