Our name originates from Ezekiel 22:30 "I looked for someone among them who will build up the wall and stand before in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but found no one."
Our Purpose: "To be and make disciples of Jesus Christ."
Weekly Gatherings are on Thursdays at 7:30pm in UCB 217 (in the new University Center). If you are unable to come on Thursday nights, we have small groups! For Spring 2015, there will be a co-ed Foundations (basics of Christianity) small group and a co-ed Celebration of Discipline small group. Please contact Standing in the Gap if you are interested in becoming part of a small group.

Standing in the Gap at Ferris State University is a place to grow as a Christian, to ask questions as one who is curious about God, Jesus, the Bible, etc., and to find a place to call home. "Gap" holds weekly gatherings on Thursday nights, weekly small group Bible studies, weekend events, and provides numerous opportunities to serve within the organization (worship band, welcome team, video projects, etc.) and also to volunteer within the local community.
