At Cornell UniversityThe ministry at Cornell — now called Christian Union Vita — is a student organization that is focused on leadership development.
The organization provides in-depth study of Scripture, Christian leadership training, fellowship, and support for Christian students as well as resources to help non-Christian students learn about Christianity. The features of the program include intellectually rigorous Bible courses, a weekly leadership lecture series called Vita Fidei, conferences, and a variety of outreaches on campus.
Christian Union also owns and runs the John R. Mott Center at Cornell University.

Christian Union is an independent Christian ministry.

- This year, five full-time Christian Union ministry faculty work directly with students, providing Bible course instruction, mentorship and leadership coaching.
- The leadership lecture series, Vita Fidei, addresses a host of challenging, inspiring topics throughout the year.
- Conferences take students off campus twice a year to go in-depth into Scripture, worship, and prayer.
- Prayer gatherings take place throughout the year, and students are learning to fast as they seek the Lord for themselves and their campus.
