Why We Love This Opportunity
Twin City Bible Church is directly across the street from the University of Illinois. It is strategically positioned to reach students and grad students with the gospel. Many in their community are international, so reaching these students means “reaching the world.”
If you are comfortable in a highly educated setting, and you long to see people connect with one another and in small groups…this is for you.
Church or Org Description
In 1933, during the depth of the Great Depression, four families gathered with a vision to reach University of Illinois students with the message of Jesus Christ. Since then, the church they founded has remained committed to that vision of this campus and community being brought together in Christ to make a difference for God’s kingdom throughout the world.
God shapes and situates each local church to play a unique role in that larger mission. Since its birth in 1933, Twin City Bible Church has had a strong sense of their role in God’s plan. They believe that they exist to see: Campus and community transformed by Christ to renew the world. Their mission is to bring together college students with people of all ages from the Champaign-Urbana community to experience the fullness of life in Christ.
