The Potter’s House is a nonprofit coffeehouse ministry that exists to connect students to Jesus Christ and to provide a space where students truly feel welcome. We have been described by countless students as their “home away from home,” and we take pride in that designation. Our menu includes delicious smoothies, gooey brownies, a full range of coffee drinks, and of course the famous Oreo Quicksand! In addition to our coffeehouse menu, we offer small groups for students who are interested on a variety of topics pertinent to the lives of college students. We now have alumni literally all over the world, including a new coffeehouse in South Korea that is following the footsteps of the Potter’s House. In addition to our staff, we also have a large number of Missouri State University students who volunteer here, so you may just see a face you know behind the counter next time you stop by. Use Potter’s House as your next study destination (free wifi), a space to hang out with a group of your friends (we have plenty of games), or come catch free local live music on many Friday or Saturday nights! Whether you have never been in before or you are a regular, we sincerely look forward to seeing you soon in the House!

Habitat for Humanity is known for building houses for people in need. What most people do not know is that four pillars create Habitat for Humanity; they are Build, Fundraise, Educate, and Advocate. Although we spend a significant amount of time building, we also spend a lot of time fundraising, teaching the public about poverty and homelessness, and advocating for those in need. Last semester we were able to participate in several touch-up projects for residents in Springfield. We also had the opportunity to collaborate with Drury’s Habitat for Humanity in order to hold a poker tournament! This next semester we have several fundraisers planned including our third annual Light the Night 5K, and we will be participating in Act, Speak, Build Week, a week that focuses on educating the community and advocating for those without homes.
Christian Campus House seeks to provide a caring fellowship where college age people can find and expand their relationship with God and learn to be doers of the Word. For over 30 years, we have seen hundreds of students find fellowship, encouragement, teaching from God’s Word, counsel, training, service, and excitement about being a part of the body of Christ. Many of those students have gone on to serve in the mission field and various forms of ministry. Many others are putting their faith into practice in law, medicine, education, business, social services, and multiple other fields. Dozens of former CCH Students serve actively in the leadership of their local congregations and have their hands in a variety of community efforts. If you are interested in finding out more about Christian Campus House, we meet on Tuesday nights at 8:01pm in the PSU Ballroom. You can also check us out at http://www.cchonthe.net.
