Christian Groups/ support people on Your Campus

If you need support or encouragement from other students, have a look at these webistes of Christian groups on your campus. There are plenty of people around. If you become aware of other groups, please let me know. I've had contact with all of these groups over the years and recommend them. Some groups are more 'social' while others are more 'spiritual' yet they all have a combination of both. Find the contact person on the site and let them know what you are after.

Evangelical Students (ES)

Catholic Youth

Oxygen (Pentecostal)

Overseas Christian Fellowship (OCF)

Lutheran Students and Friends (LSF)

Rev.Stephen Trautwien from Mawson Lakes Community Church has special interest in supporting international students. He does a 'bread run' to international students who live near the campus and is always brimming with new ideas on how to best support students from overseas. I've got to know Pastor Stephen a bit over the years and he has a long history of helping people out. So, if you know any overseas students who are a bit lonely or need a hand contact Stephen on phone:
