Davis College - Pursue God

Needs at Davis College


Thank you to Bronson Paving for volunteering their time and resources to help with campus paving projects in November 2011!

There are a number of ways that friends can get involved at Davis College. Below is a list of current needs for both resources and volunteers. We appreciate all those who pray, give, and labor to help the College.
