our story

College Ministries of Virginia (CMOV), a recognized 501(c)3 was founded in 2008 and is guided by staff and our board of directors. CMOV aims to plant and cultivate campus ministries all across our commonwealth. 

Christian Student Fellowship (CSF) at VCU was the initial campus ministry. In 2011, CSF at ODU was planted and this fall we will begin a CSF at JMU.

Christian Student Fellowship exists to foster student connection with CHRIST, the CHURCH and their COMMUNITY.

Christ = relationship with God

church = being the body of christ, but also encouraging students to be a part of a local congregation

Community = aim is to encourage students to embrace their missional calling to campus and throughout their career.

  • Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and rose from the dead.

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God.

  • Every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

  • Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

  • Those accepting Christ should repent of their sin, confess their faith and be baptized into Him.

  • The Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to save the lost and edify the saved.

  • Jesus Christ will one day return and reign forever as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
