Coptic Orthodox Students Association (COSA) (COSA)

OCSA UTSG is a Christ-centered campus ministry. We are open to all students seeking fellowship and spiritual growth in the light of our Lord and His Church. We strive for the well-being and success of each and every one of our members: spiritually, personally, and academically.

While we are a Coptic initiative within the Oriental Orthodox communion [Coptic, Eritrean, Ethiopian, Syrian, Armenian, Malankara], we are open to dialogue and collaboration with other campus ministries and student groups.

Our ministry professes the Orthodox Christian Faith, the authority of Scripture, Holy Tradition and the inviolable truth of the Nicene Creed. As such, we serve in accordance with Church teachings – including those concerning origins of life, morality, and salvation in the Church “which is His body” – Ephesians 1:22.

In addition to serving our own members, our OCSA chapter also aims to be a shining light to the campus community and the community at large – through initiatives such as outreach and charity which reflect the commandment of our Lord himself, “that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” – Matthew 5:16
