Student Life

An Engaged Student Life that Fosters a Growing Faith in God
Mid-America Christian University strives to be an authentic Christian community that challenges students to respond to Christ with their minds, hearts, and bodies. To this end, as a student, you and your peers will pursue a transformational journey that:

  • Introduces you to the foremost knowledge regarding your field of study
  • Challenges your thoughts and exposes you to new ideas and opportunities.
  • Encourages your devotion to God.
  • Inspires you to be a person of action on behalf of the needs of others.
  • Equips you with the tools and skills you needed to advance personally and professionally.  

A Community of Support and Growth
The Mid-America community features an engaged staff, faculty mentors, and peer groups that reinforce authentic Spirit-filled living.  We encourage students to not merely “follow the rules” of what is expected in a Christian community, but to press toward the joy of knowing God in a way that impact not only their life, but those around them for good.  

Small Group Discipleship and Community Worship
Corporate worship opportunities, discipleship, small group participation, and personal accountability are essential to authentic Christian living at MACU. Bi-annual Spiritual Emphasis Weeks, Women’s Groups, Fellowship of Christian Athletes meetings, and University Chapel every Wednesday and Friday morning form the foundation of spiritual life on campus.

The Vibrant Oklahoma City Church Community
As an endorsed agency of the Church of God, Mid-America Christian University encourages local church attendance. Many of our students attend Crossing Community Church and Shartel Church of God in Oklahoma City.  Make sure you get connected to the local church of your choosing!

A Spirit of Service: Crossing Campus, Community, Cultures and Continents
At Mid-America, we’re not only equipping students to do well in life—we’re preparing them to “do good” too—wherever they go!   In fact, 100% of Mid-America’s on-campus students participate in organized community-service projects throughout Oklahoma City. Many of these same students also volunteer for special teams that travel over fall and spring breaks to help nearby neighbors in-need. Last year, 14 students helped families devastated by the Joplin tornado by providing neighborhood clean-up and home repairs.  Others students have traveled to Asia, Europe, and Africa, through the MACU Study Abroad Program, where they not only provided personal ministry, but also performed practical service like digging fresh water wells in Uganda.  This type of outreach helps students develop spiritual maturity, a heart of compassion, and to become people of action on behalf of those who need it most.
