#REACH is the place for college students.  

Some people call it college ministry...we call it "REACH".  We believe Jesus cares about people, which means he cares about college students.  He "reached" down to us, so that we might "reach" out to you.  #REACH is a community of college students for Jesus and for you. Did you know Grand Avenue Baptist Church is less than a mile (2 traffic lights) from the University of Arkansas, Fort Smith (UAFS)? So, we're close and want to connect with you.

#REACH  //  Wednesday Nights, 9:00p  //  Main Worship Auditorium  

During the school semester, college students gather for an hour for amazing music and biblical teaching that answers life questions. This is a grace place, where any student is welcome. And it's fun! 

#REACH  //  Sunday Mornings, 9:15a  //  College Room (1st floor under the overpass)

Every Sunday morning, college students gather with free donuts, coffee, and drinks to study the Bible. We meet around tables for deep discussion about life and Jesus. Bring a Bible or we will give you one...our gift to you.

#REACH Groups  //  Throughout the week  //  UAFS, off campus

During the school semester, our student leaders seek to reach out to other students for community and conversation about Jesus in a small group. We provide snacks while the group meets. It's real and chill.

#REACH Trips  //  Currently working on 2017 dates  //  Local, National, International 

Throughout the year, we like to go on mission trips. These trips can be local "For the Fort" or global "From the Fort". You can always check out gabcmissions.com for more information. Here are some places we've been and plan to go back to this school year!
