KUDZU

Our mission statement is to show the unconditional love of God to students through loving God, loving each other and community.


Northridge Christian Church began a campus ministry in 2011 when they acquired the church from First Christian Church. Since then the ministry has been reaching out to the students of GC&SU, GMC, and CGTC. In August of 2014, the ministry was named "Kudzu", with the mission of growing throughout the colleges of Milledgeville and making an impact for Christ.


During the semester, we meet Thursday nights at 6:30 for a free dinner, and then a program including music, prayer and a talk. Retreats, recreation, and service opportunities are also scheduled throughout the semester to give students the ability to build community. Smalls groups have also been formed and provide a more intimate way for students to grow together. If you have questions, please contact Mandy Cook, College Pastor.  Our Campus Church building located at 555 North Columbia Street




what is kudzu?

A college ministry of Northridge Christian Church. Kudzu is all about connecting with the college students of Milledgeville and spreading the love of Jesus through our community and beyond.


Throughout the semester we offer ways to get involved with church, service opportunities, small groups, retreats and so much more. Of course free food is always available!


We would love for you to join us. Look around the website and come check us out during the week. We look forward to meeting you!

  • ALYSSA HARRIS


    I am a Sophomore Music major at Georgia College and this is a picture of me crying in public when I met a cute old dog. I'm obsessed with Lily Pulitzer. I know every single word to all the High School Musical songs, and I can make a mean double shot of espresso. I am a real Disney princess and if you say a certain phrase that reminds me of something, I'll probably break out into a musical number. One day, I would like to have a pet cow that likes to cuddle and maybe a goat or two with cute little beards.

    So this is me...I'm the real Anna Kendrick. I just graduated from Point University with a degree in Psychology. I love me some camping. I just finished working at a summer camp in Chickamauga, GA where I was the program director for about 200 kids. I'm super pumped about this year. I can't wait to hangout with everyone and rock Kudzu!

  • BAILEY OUELLETTE


    I am a Sophomore Political Science major who doesn't actually understand politics. My two true loves are 5-hour naps and very berry sour gummy worms. I have a knack for adventure, so come cruise with me in my Prius around Milly, obnoxious singing and laughing will be provided if the Prius wasn't enough to embarrass you. Can't wait to meet you!

    I'm a Student Athlete Nursing major at GCSU. I love Jesus, humans (especially of the baby kind), volleyball, polar bears, and ice cream. It is my dream to be in the Kudzu band but my voice cracks and I can't play an instrument so you can find me in the back dancing. All are welcome. Yay Jesus and yay Kudzu!

  • CHRISTIAN THOMAS


    I am in my  fourth year of college and second year of school at GCSU. My goal in life is to make those around me smile and to just enjoy life.  Apparently people think I am funny but I can't hel it. I have a trait past down from generations in his family that allows me to have a head full of puns. I know so many puns that I've written a theatrical production about puns, it's basically a play on words. And don't ask me where I'm from once I speak to you, everyone knows I'm from the south, more specifically I am from a small town called Trion, GA. I have attended church all of his life and continue to grow my personal relationship with God and I love to share God's word with others.

  • LUKE BRYANT


    I'm a Sophomore Nursing major. My story begins on a dark stormy night in early July. It was a troublesome birth (as I was largely overweight) yet somehow I managed to survive & now I'm on Leadership. Funny how life works huh? Nowadays I spend most of my time getting sad and trying to steal other people's ideas for this biography. If you have any medical questions, please don't ask me. I have no idea about any of it.

  • TAVARIS JOHNSON


    I am a rising Junior at Georgia College. I spend my free time running, reading or scraping my knee playing intramural dodgeball; Kudzu needs to make a team. People say I know everyone, but chances are if you're looking at this, I haven't met you. I'm looking forward to a fun-filled year! Oh, I forgot to mention that I'm a Sociology major who might pick up Spanish as a minor for the second time.
