Fall 2023

Labor of Love in a Box

September 3-5 TAU’s ‘Labor of Love’ puts tangible meaning into the Labor Day holiday with a weekend packed full of faith, leadership, friendship, learning AND fun! From Friday through Monday, high school youth gather with college leaders, ministers and staff mentors. Learning and soul-sharpening activities allow for reflection and service. Leadership activities demonstrate new skills, deeper reflection and confidence.

Adventures in Faith

September 21-24 The True Cost: Stories of Human Trafficking gives voice to the forgotten ones: the people who are forced into sexual servitude; the children who are exploited as slave labor to provide cheap goods sold in our very own neighborhoods; the women and men who are lured into domestic labor that turns out to be entrapment rather than employment. Renowned Chicago playwright Jenny Magnus has created a breathtaking play using the true stories of trafficking survivors, obtained through interviews with anonymous volunteer participants. Adventures in Faith (AIF) is an annual event that brings a team of alumni who are established in their vocational or volunteer fields and united by a strong faith commitment to spend three days on campus in Ottawa, Kansas. While here, they make in-class, group and chapel presentations on blending vocation with avocation.

Braving Discipleship

November 6&7 Braving Discipleship is a weekend conference for high school students and youth pastors from Kansas and surrounding states. OU students are instrumental in planning and administrating this Christian conference. During the conference, OU students have ample opportunities to lead committees and small-group workshops within this Christian-based ministry.

Hope for the Holidays

NOVEMBER Many hands make light work–and hope! Students and community come together in this multi-step process to bake pies for the elderly in the Franklin County area! We smash, we mix and we bake wonderful pies for the homebound, elderly and caregivers.

DECEMBER Elves and Angels is a community service organization that provides children in need winter essentials and a place to celebrate the season while bringing the Franklin County community and Ottawa University students and faculty together to make a difference.

12 Days and Angel Tree Join us on a 12-day adventure of giving to the community through fellowship and creativity. Each day highlights a different project starting the 1st day of December, all the way until the 12th, with projects including Christmas cookies, Christmas wreaths and ornaments, soaps, and hot chocolate — all gifts for those in need!
