Big hearted, open minded campus ministry
The Vine is a network of big hearted, open minded Christian campus ministries in New York City. We are college and graduate students from universities across the city with a variety of faith backgrounds, life experiences, identities and ideas. Together, we eat, pray, play, talk, learn, laugh, sing, serve, wrestle with big questions, and work for a more just world. We do our best to live out the radical, gracious love of God in Jesus Christ. If you are a college or graduate student in New York City, there is a place for you here.
The Vine NYC is a community where everyone is encouraged to bring their whole selves. We seek to be a welcoming and affirming community for students from all learning institutions and of all faith traditions, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, physical and mental abilities, socioeconomic circumstances, documentation statuses, sexual orientations and gender identities. We delight in folks with doubts and hard questions. We are explicit in our celebration of the LGBTQIA+ members of our community. Whoever you are, we'd love to welcome you.
The Vine's ministry branches are local student communities that gather weekly throughout the city to eat, laugh, talk, read scripture, and pray together. Our ministry branches include:
College Student Pantry
The College Student Pantry is our student-run food pantry in the East Village providing fresh, nutritious groceries to any college student in need - no questions asked. Learn more.
The Vine's local ministry branches gather throughout the year as a citywide community to build relationships with one another and God, serve our neighbors and have fun.
Citywide gatherings have included retreats, immersion and learning trips, service projects, visiting speakers, small groups, social justice advocacy and more. Students unable to connect with a local branch are still welcome at citywide gatherings. Learn more!
Support campus ministry
Our campus ministries are made possible by the generosity of individuals and congregations who care deeply about supporting young people in loving community as they explore faith and discern vocation during their student years. Will you help make those communities possible?
