College

Our Mission

The Bayou Church exists to transform students lives in Acadiana through Christ-centered relationships. The key word there is "relationships." We believe that we can't do life alone. Together, we spur each other on to real, full and lasting life. Together, we are The Bayou Church.

 

Our Values

Everyone Has A Story
“I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return.” Philippians 1:9-10 (NLT)
Life is Better Together
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV)
Rescued People Reach People
“I’m here inviting outsiders, not insiders—an invitation to a changed life, changed inside and out.” Luke 5:31-32 (MSG)
 
The Best is Ahead
“‘The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’” John 10:10 (NIV)
 

College Night 

College night meets in the Student Venue of The Bayou Church on most Thursday nights during the fall and spring semesters at 7:00pm. It's a gathering of college-age students in Acadiana who come together to share in community, worship, and teaching specific to their unique season of life. 


Life Groups

Life Groups are a combination of hanging out with friends and growing closer to Jesus. They offer students the opportunity to meet and grow closer to new friends while growing in faith through Bible study. Life Groups meet only during the fall and spring semesters.
