There are a variety of organizations available on campus for students of all interests. Students are encouraged to take part in activities outside the classroom. Leadership opportunities in these organizations provide students with experience for their future vocations.
Campus Ministries Council
Campus Ministries Council (CMC) directs and coordinates the efforts of student ministries at Tabor. The council consists of four executive positions with the campus pastor as the advisor and one representative from each of the following ministries:
- Impact — provides opportunities for students to get involved in missions and to serve those around them on campus, in the local community, and around the world.
- Share, Prayer and Dare (SP&D) — provides a contemporary worship experience in order that the student body might encounter God and each other each Wednesday night.
- Women’s Mentoring — The Tabor Women’s Mentoring Program connects Tabor women with women from around the Hillsboro community in mentoring relationships. The organization aspires to establish relationships of depth and help women become women of character according to Proverbs 31 and Titus 2.

- The “Underground” Men’s Ministry — focuses on sharing the gospel to men on campus and helping them understand what Jesus accomplished through his death and resurrection. They also equip men with the tools to lead a life pleasing to God as they gather in fellowship, accountability, and worship before God.
