Global Awakening


"But where sin increased, grace increased all the more ..." - Romans 5:20b 

Global Awakening is a three-night event with a focus on how the Gospel of Jesus Christ answers all the problems sin has created. Immediately after the Awakening each night, students have the opportunity to sponsor a rescue. Bible studies on and off campus will be represented so further connection and discipleship opportunities exist for Spiritual formation. 

Charleston Southern University's Awakening series kicks off the series Restore for the month of August. Students will be challenged to give their lives to bring the Gospel to the broken places and bring restoration.

Elevate is our corporate worship gathering that is open to everyone. It is gathering where all the Campus Ministries gather together for worship and fellowship. Elevate takes place, LORD willing, every Thursday night at 8 pm in the Cafeteria. Immediately after worship, we have opportunities for students to get connected in "The Go Center" (Charleston Room). 

Our focus at Elevate is JESUS. We seek to Elevate JESUS so that students are reached, raised in the Scriptures, and released to live out the "image of God." The Scripture focus for Elevate, "But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." (John 12:32; NIV) 

"The Go Center" is a place where all of our partnerships on and off campus have tables where students can get connected and serve. Anything the university plans strategically through Campus Ministries is highlighted. 

Partnerships for the month of August is Operation Baby Rescue, September Dream Center and E3 Ministries, October A 21, and November Operation Christmas Child.
