The Oasis exists to build a community of international and american students who share life together through relationship, resourcing, and personal renewal.

Our mission is to draw together a diverse group of students who will come together in relationship, sharing our common and unique stories and faith, finding ways to be a resource to one another, particularly to international students who may have unique needs we can help them meet in the cultural context of Muncie, Indiana and Ball State University.

The OasiABC+Logo_bw2s at Ball State University is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA and The American Baptist Churches of Indiana/Kentucky. We have been a missional presence at Ball State University for many years and work to build positive, spiritually forming relationships with students, staff, and faculty as well as w
ith our neighbors in the Muncie community. We intend to work in ministry cooperatively with other campus ministries as we are invited and able to do so. We believe it is important to work ecumenically with other denominations and non-denominational groups as well as with other groups on campus.

American Baptists have a rich history of being committed to Missions, Education, and Social Justice issues in the United States and around the world.
