About the 17th Street Student Center


To cultivate intelligent, vigorous, joyful commitment to Jesus Christ, his Church, and his World.  We do this specifically by telling the campus about the love and life changing power of Jesus Christ. We believe that by reaching and discipling students at Washburn University, inevitably it will result in the world forever being changed.


The 17th Street Student Center was formerly affiliated with Chi Alpha Campus Ministries of the Assemblies of God. While we have not chosen to continue that affiliation, we encourage our residents to be involved with Chi Alpha, or other campus ministries at Washburn.  We continue to exit under the ministry of a local assemblies of God churcn and ordained Assemblies of God ministers.

We have students at the 17th Street Student Center from a variety of churches and backgrounds, and strongly encourage involvement in a local church community while at college.
