College Group

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?

“Ask Anything” is a 4-week series where our college pastor will take time to answer questions that have been anonymously submitted by those in the ministry. This series is about engaging cultural, theological, and social topics from the lens of the Christian worldview. 

Please submit your questions here. Join us for “Mariners at UCI” on Thursdays @ 8P on Jan 9, 16, 23 and 30 as we explore these topics together.
