Welcome to Kent State!

Over the next few years, this place will become your home. So much will happen while you’re here—you’ll make lifelong friends, learn how to live on your own, and decide what you want to do with your life. Sound overwhelming? Can’t wait to get started? Either way, we are here for you. We would love to walk alongside you in this journey.

We are a church for college students and young adults like you. We think college is the best time to discover and pursue faith in God. We have seen hundreds of new students encounter God and be transformed by Him here. And we believe He wants to do the same for you.

We gather for worship every Sunday here on campus and we have small groups that meet all over campus and around town. And we are passionate about serving our campus and our community. Everything we do is rooted in our desire to encounter God together as a community of young people.


Welcome Week Events

We want to meet you! The best way to get involved is to meet someone who calls H2O home. And the easiest way to meet someone is to check out one of our events.
