OD College exists to see students be ambassadors for Christ through a life of faithfulness in loving God and making His gospel known. The process behind the mission is defined by three words: REACH. REFINE. RELEASE. Reaching students with the gospel. Refining them as Christ followers, and Releasing them to be ambassadors in the world.

REACH – students with the gospel
REFINE – them as Christ followers
RELEASE – them to be ambassadors in the world

We’d love for you to be a part of all that we do at and through Open Door! To know what’s going on, it’s best to follow us on Instagram: @opendoorlifenc and @odccollege



Community is an essential part of what we are about at Open Door. This is the context in which students are discipled and grow alongside other believers; whether peers or seasoned brothers and sisters in Christ. In addition to meeting weekly for Sunday worship, we desire to see students pursue discipleship relationships with others in a CareGroup. The Christian walk is not meant to be lived in isolation, and so we urge students to be discipled and in turn be discipling others.

We recognize that community amongst believers in Christ can be flushed out in many ways. We don’t desire for students to unplug from other pockets of community altogether; rather we encourage students to learn Christian community through the context of the local church. For this will give students a framework of what life will be like after school and beyond.

To receive information on getting plugged into a CareGroup, reference the form below.


Meeting Dates & Times:

Missions Opportunities

Summer LINK
We believe that God has called every believer to be on mission right where they are whether that’s on the job, on campus, or in the community. We also believe that God has called us to take the gospel to the nations. Every summer we have opportunities for students to be on mission through the local church. You might stay local and serve Raleigh through Open Door or you can go to places like Miami, Boston, Seattle, Honduras, and India. For more information about how to go on mission this summer, visit


GenSend Summer is designed to be an exciting, intense and unique student missionary experience. It immerses young adults into a context where they gain practical knowledge of the realities of mission and leadership. Participants will spend their time learning to live life on mission under the guidance of local practitioners, compassion ministry leaders and church planters in a major city, on a college campus or at a Send Relief Ministry Center.
