Mission & Ministry Student Organizations
Habitat for Humanity
GCU’s student chapter of Habitat for Humanity is founded on the conviction that everyone should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. Volunteers partner with Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity to participate in local builds and fundraisers. The club also sponsors week-long Collegiate Challenge trips during breaks to help build houses, partnerships and communities in North Carolina. No construction experience necessary.
Mercy Collegiate Society
MCS is an opportunity for GCU students to engage in the charism and work of Mercy. The organization takes inspiration from Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy. MCS is founded upon four pillars which are intended to help student members grow as women and men of Mercy: social networking, service to the local and global community, spiritual development, and servant leadership. The organization is run jointly through Campus Ministry and Mission Integration. Apply for membership.
