CSCC - USC Campus Ministry

On-Campus Worship is every Sunday night during the fall and spring semesters.  We meet at 7:00 in Russell House, Room 303.

Christ's Student Church at Carolina (CSCC) is the Church of Christ campus ministry at the University of South Carolina.  CSCC exists to glorify Christ through the lives of Carolina students with worship, Bible Study, service, relationships, and Godly social interaction.  We are united in Christ but diverse in ethnicity, interests, and backgrounds.  CSCC's intent is to be counter-cultural as we emphasize the love, faith, and lifestyle found in God's Word.  Beliefs are sought in the Bible only rather than any denominational or cultural worldviews.

If you are a student looking for a campus ministry, if you want to learn more about Christ and His Word, or if you just want someone to talk to, please contact Campus Minister Randy Gore at  You have a welcome spot as a friend in CSCC.

CSCC is a cooperative outreach sponsored by several congregations and individuals in non-denominational Churches of Christ.  The ministry is overseen locally by Palmetto Church of Christ, Columbia, South Carolina.
