As a ministry of The Navigators, EDGE Corps is passionate about the Gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom and is burdened to see the Gospel transform the lives of university students.  As a result, EDGE Corps is a 1 or 2 year ministry opportunity to call out a new generation of Jesus-followers and to watch God change lives and advance His Kingdom on the college campus.

This summer we have been doing a Bible study on the book of Galatians, debriefing on daily time spent in God’s Word, doing initiative evangelism every week, and so much more. I’m praying these practices will become habits that will help the students be strengthened in their faith for the long haul.
