You’ll notice that we say it often, and we really mean it.

All Are Welcome!

Are you curious about the Christian faith? Seeking fulfillment or authentic life purpose? Do you desire a community of people that prioritize healing, belonging, and friendship? We would love to have you take part in life with us!

Who We Are

Olathe College Church of the Nazarene is a Christian church located at 2020 E. Sheridan St., Olathe, KS. That’s around 20 miles southeast of Kansas City, Missouri!


College Church derives its name based off its location adjacent to MidAmerica Nazarene University (MNU). While we treasure our close proximity and special relationship with MNU, College Church attendees and members come from all different age groups and educational backgrounds. College Church is an open community and attendees and members are not required or expected to have any affiliation with the nearby university.

Our Vision

where the Lost are Found and the Hurting are Healed,

where the Young are Nurtured and the Old are Cherished,

where All are Welcome and Christ is Adored.

More is available than you’ve ever imagined!

Explore Ministries



We’ve all had moments of hurt and brokenness because we live in a world that is not yet as God wants for it to be. Support & Recovery is about more than coping. We believe that true healing can be found in community with others who will share in vulnerability, compassion, and care.

Encounter Support



If you’re around College Church long, you are bound to hear the phrase “Life-on-Life.” We believe that this is the essence of our calling as Christians, relationship with others, and believe in the way that time spent with friends around a meal can awaken a fervor for the Kingdom of God in our everyday.

Find Your Group



As Christians, our hearts should break for what breaks the heart of God, causing us to fight the injustices surrounding us and exhibit mercy to the hurting and broken in our communities. Find out how you can be a part of this in our Olathe community, and around the world.
