Student Organizations

Each semester, we invite members of our student body to serve in committees that facilitate aspects of student life on and off campus. Students are welcome to serve on the following committees:

  • Student Worship Committee – This committee works with our Student Life Coordinators to plan vespers services on Friday nights and other worship events.
  • Student Activities Committee – This committee plans and facilitates student activities each semester.


Jerusalem hosts a wide variety of church bodies from the full spectrum of historic Christianity. None will be exactly like what you are used to back home, including the day on which you are used to worshipping. Some churches meet on Friday evenings, others on Saturday mornings or evenings, and others on Sunday mornings or evenings. Services are held in English, Hebrew, Arabic, German, French, Danish, Russian, Greek, Latin, Armenian, Aramaic, Syriac, and Coptic, among other languages.

We encourage students to attend church services in addition to the on-campus Friday night Vespers service. Some of our students get involved in one church, while others attend a different church each week. Because field studies are scheduled on weekend days (Saturdays and Sundays), you might want to visit some churches that meet on Saturday and others that meet on Sunday. We post an updated list of some popular Christian churches and Messianic congregations that meet in Jerusalem near the Administrative Office.
