The SB Community college ministry connects the college-aged students of the Santa Barbara area to God, to one another, to the church family at SB Community, and to opportunities to serve their world in order that, through these relationships, they might reflect the character of God and influence their world for the gospel.

We love college students at SB Community Church and long to see them get plugged into the broader church family so that they can be known and exercise their gifts as they continue to journey toward becoming more like Jesus.

The disruption caused by COVID-19 has been especially pronounced for college students. This fall, however, we are pleased to be partnering with Young Life to offer a safe, outside college group which meets on our church campus each Sunday night from 8-9pm.  Consider joining in!  Additionally, whether in person or virtually, college students are invited to participate in a homegroup. In this context, they will be challenged to grow in their faith alongside of others who desire to live out their belief in Jesus in noticeable ways. Homegroups are available from September through May, and interested students are encouraged to contact Erin Patterson to find a group.


During the school year we encourage college students to join a homegroup to connect to the larger church body (see our homegroups page for details) or a small group Bible study on your school's campus. Research your college campus bulletin boards to see what might be available.


Join Community Connect, search for “College Group”, and request to join!
