From Sabbath afternoon walks in the creek to special Power Pac weekends, Campus Ministries is integral in setting the spiritual atmosphere on Ozark's campus. One of the goals of the Campus Ministries department is encouraging students to get involved in the spiritual programs on campus and in area churches. On almost any given weekend visitors will find students taking a leadership role either on our campus or in a local church. Students help plan and organize meetings, speak for various worship services, vespers and chapels, and are responsible for leading out in music and prayer. David Esquer currently serves as our full-time chaplain on campus. If you have any questions about Ozark's religious activities, Mr. Esquer may be contacted via the email link below.

One of the Sabbath afternoon activities planned by campus ministries during the 2022-2023 school year was kayaking on City Lake. On a sunny afternoon in September, students headed a few miles down the road to City Lake. It was a perfect spot to unwind in nature. Students have also had the opportunity to participate in other Sabbath afternoon activities like canned food drives, Bible games, caving, geocaching, creek walks (walks not by the creek but in the creek), and Sabbath afternoon hangouts (hammocking, frisbees, and friends).
