Campus Ministry in Middle America

Is Missouri considered part of the Bible belt? Not sure. It’s Midwest-y, and I thought pretty conservative. Anyway, if I were to ask anyone familiar with college campus religious life what the top campus religious organizations at a college in Missouri, what responses would I get? Campus Crusade for Christ? InterVarsity Christian Fellowship? Well, apparently, at Missouri State University in, well, Missouri, the 2nd largest campus religious organization is . . . wait for it . . . The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Indeed. If you haven’t heard of them, or their noodly appendaged object of worship, they’ve been around for a couple years now. But apparently, they’ve gotten some traction in the heartland. Interesting stuff. You can check out their Facebook Group here.
