For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:10

Lexington, KY is a college town home to the University of Kentucky, Transylvania,  and nearby schools such as Asbury, EKU, and many others. Being in Lexington means interacting with many young adults who are seeking to cultivate an identity while preparing for the future. Our goal at GCC is to create a community where students and young adults grow deeper in their relationship with Christ, one another, and the church.


REACH students in Lexington and surrounding areas.

INTEGRATE college students within the whole church community.

GROW their relationship with God, and progression into adulthood through discipleship relationships.

SEND them out as equipped missionaries for Christ in their community.



Discipleship is a vital part of our ministry and we will make sure to give you the opportunity to GROW spiritually with a leader in our church. We care about what God's Word has to say on what your relationship should look like with Him. We will teach you, pray with you, and walk alongside you to learn and apply these truths.

Joining a Community Group with people in all walks of life is a way to INTEGRATE our college students into the church. Groups meet in the evenings throughout the week in people's homes where they break bread, check in with one another, and dive further into Sunday's sermon. You can sign up for a group by clicking here.


Adopt a College Student is one of our favorite ministries we offer to our college students. Families in our church invite you into their homes by providing: a place to live, dinners, laundry, game nights, life advice, you name it! It's a way for you to experience an authentic church family while you're away from yours. We ask in return that you get together with your assigned family once a month of the course of the school year.
