- In 2019-20, 183 undergraduate students at Columbia enrolled in Christian Union's rigorous, weekly Bible courses.
- This year, three full-time Christian Union ministry faculty and one intern worked directly with students, providing Bible course instruction, mentorship and leadership coaching.
- The leadership lecture series, Illumina, addressed a host of challenging, inspiring topics throughout the year like Is God Sexist?; Our Justice Calling; and If We Have Science, Why Do We Need God?
- Conferences took students off campus twice and provided stellar teaching on the book of John, times of worship and community building.
- The outreach team organized a Holy Week fast and daily devotional in which 50 students took part.
- Weekly Sunday night dinners and prayer were a community cornerstone and the foundation for Lumine's seeking God culture.
