Mission Statement


We believe that The Center @ VSU is both a safe haven and a training ground.

We believe that we are called to provide sacred space,
where students – along with the entire campus community – are embraced by acts of hospitality,
surrounded by words of encouragement,
and enfolded by an attitude of generosity.

We believe that we are called to serve as a launching pad,
where students are equipped to be disciples of Jesus Christ through service, study, and practices of prayer,
where congregations are empowered to be prodigal witnesses through the sharing of stories, meals, and resources.

Recipients of God’s lavish love,
we seek to respond to that love with energy and exuberance.

Recipients of God’s tender care,
we seek to reflect that care with intentionality and imagination.
