HELPING OUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS FIND AND FOLLOW JESUS.
The City of Boston has more than 250,000 college students. That's approximately 1/3 of Boston's population, not to mention the number of universities and students in the Greater Boston area. Some of the future’s most influential people in the world come to study in our backyard, and so it is a tremendous opportunity to influence the world for Christ.
Unlike the workplace, where faith conversations might be taboo or considered inappropriate, the university setting encourages dialogue and conversation, allowing for rich discussion and sharing of the gospel. As a result, CoaH College is committed to spreading the gospel on college campuses as we seek to help our friends and neighbors find and follow Jesus.
Partnering with campus ministries to make, mature, and multiply followers of Jesus.
City On A Hill recognizes that in order for us to effectively reach the college campus with the gospel, it is imperative that we collaborate with evangelical parachurch ministries that are uniquely positioned to reach students on campus as official student-run organizations. We are currently partnered with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA and Cru Boston.
Our church encourages both participation in our local church and the mission to students on campus. We also encourage our non-students to support and serve in campus ministry in a multitude of ways, including the giving of resources, time, and funds to support the mission on campus.
Gather for worship. Grow in community. Go on mission.
Five ways for you to get involved now...
1. Sunday Morning Gathering

2. Community Groups
City on a Hill's Community Groups are more than just once-a-week gatherings of smaller groups of people; they are communities that participate in the rhythms of life together throughout the city! And our College Community Groups are the way we live out the Christian life practically at City on a Hill. Our goal is to constantly remind one another of the good news of Jesus Christ and how that applies to each day as well as declare and display the gospel to our unbelieving friends and neighbors. Join a Community Group!
