Fall: September 6, 2022—December 6, 2022

Life Group: Sunday Mornings
This is a great way to meet other college-age students here in Birmingham and the surrounding area. We dive into the Word together each week and are led in a lesson by one of our College Life Group Leaders. College Life Group meets at 11:00 a.m. in the Choir Room and is led by Brian and Lacey Middleton, Jonathan and Kristi Kelley, and our college team.

Wednesday Night Church
There are many ways to get involved at Dawson throughout the week. First, join us at 5:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall for Fellowship Supper (college students eat free!). You can then choose to serve in an age-group ministry, rehearse with the Sanctuary Choir or Orchestra, serve on the Kitchen Team, or join an intergenerational Bible Study at 6:00 p.m. Our college team will be in the Fellowship Hall and will rotate between the different ministries weekly to ensure you get to where you need to be.

Village: Thursday Nights
Village is a great opportunity to get a taste of the community here at Dawson. These groups meet every Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. in a church member’s home. Come enjoy food with us at the beginning of our weekly time in the Word. For more information about group locations, please contact Kara Fincher.

Fall: September 15, 2022—December 8, 2022
Spring: January 19, 2023—April 20, 2023


Service and Mission

Dawson's College Ministry is a ministry of service to the church, the community, and the world. Our college students are actively serving here in various ministries and with other organizations around the city. We also help to send college students on the numerous mission trips that our church offers each year. If you would like information on how to serve at Dawson or about other missions opportunities, please contact Kara Fincher.


Lead Team

Our Lead Team is made up of student leaders who are highly invested in the different areas of our ministries. We have a limited number of positions available each year in five different areas where you can partner with us to lead this growing ministry. Lead Team applications open each spring.
