We are a community of college students eager to foster an environment where all people can meet Jesus Christ calling us deeper into life and love with God.

If you’re restless, if you feel like you’ve been wandering, if you feel alone, come and join a group of students committed to finding community and direction right here in the middle of the chaos—even in the middle of a pandemic. We don’t pretend to be flashy or fancy, we only want to be honest and open. We are simply about creating space for college students to ask big questions, chase big purposes, and journey together to find meaning, belonging, and community—to find home.

Our Campus Minister

GARY HEAD

Gary loves college students—their questions, their anxieties, their passions, their humor—and he is so grateful to be able to spend so much time with them helping them find home with Christ. Gary was an intern for Christ in Action during college, and has been a full time campus minister here since 2017. He has been married to Kayli since 2013, and they have three beautiful children, Levi, Nora, and (_____). He has a deep (and probably unhealthy) passion for tacos, and he loves a good cup of coffee, reading, and writing about himself in the third person.

Our International Minister

TIM TALLEY

Tim is our International Student Minister. He works closely with his wife Rebecca, overseeing International Student Fellowship, FriendSpeak and training for Let’s Start Talking mission trips. Tim and Rebecca’s experience as missionaries in Kenya and Tanzania for 27 years, has made them especially sensitive to the needs of international students here in Lubbock. Tim & Rebecca have three adult daughters and three granddaughters. He holds degrees in Bible from Lubbock Christian and Abilene Christian University.

Campus Ministry Apprentice

BETHANY SIMMONS

Hey, I’m Bethany! I graduated from Harding University in 2020 with a degree in Bible and Family Ministry, and I’m super pumped to be at CA these days! When I’m not at CA, you can probably find me fiddling, singing, hiking, and eating chips and quest…probably not at the same time, though. I’m excited to meet you!

Our Intern

JOSIAH JONES
