Venite: Ascension Campus Ministry

“O Come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!”

-Psalm 95:1


Church of the Ascension is devoted to loving God and loving our neighbors, and those neighbors includes the college students of Oakland. Through our partnership with the Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO) and our team of campus ministry staff, Venite is committed to seeing this generation of college students transformed by Christ to transform the world for Christ.
