Ministries & Churches


Cornell is big. It’s the biggest Ivy League school with something like 15,000 students who call Ithaca home for 9 months out of the year. There are Christian groups and churches on campus and off campus that love Jesus and are passionate about telling others about Him. These groups and churches work together as different parts of the body of Christ to make Him known. Below is a few of them:
