During the ages of 18-25, we transition from high school to college, and then to a career. In the midst of the changes, we often encounter challenges and questions that have never crossed our minds. For example, how does faith relate to the ideas we face on our campuses? Or, what does it mean to follow Christ in a job that does not seem to have much to do with Him?

College + Career (C+C) is a ministry for people who find themselves in this season of life. We seriously engage those challenges and questions because we know the gospel of Christ impacts our day-to-day school and work. We’re convinced that Christian community provides the best way to navigate all of life's issues.

Check below to find out more about where and when we meet. If you would like to have someone reach out to you with more details about C+C, click here


A place to get encouragement as we follow Christ, answer common Adulting 101 questions, and create opportunities to meet up with others, make friends, and hang out. College + Career is the college and young adult ministry of Bay Life church that meets on Thursdays at 7 pm and throughout the week at various homes.

Join the Group Today


Thursdays | 7–9pm

We invite you to join us under the Lid (the covered open-air area space in the middle of the campus with artificial turf) this Thursday from 7-9 pm @ Bay Life Church (1017 Kingsway Rd. Brandon, FL 33510). There's always a free coffee bar, great worship, study, and some hang out time! 

If you're new here, don't worry; we've got you covered. A couple of things to expect are free coffee, turf games, a chance to connect with other young adults, great worship (sometimes acoustic sets around the firepits), and small group time to study a chapter in the Bible together.

Below, you'll find the Airstream Cafe menu! Free specialty coffee beverages and drinks for all College + Career group attendees from 7pm-8pm every Thursday (while supplies last).


We have two life groups that meet throughout the week.  These are smaller communities that become like family as they walk through life together.  If you would like more info or to get connected to one of these groups, click on the leaders' names below.
