Campus Ministries is dedicated to providing you with spiritual programs, resources, ministry opportunities, and especially prayer. Our purpose is to enhance your spiritual development while providing you with avenues for Christian fellowship. All are welcome to our worship and social events. We encourage you to seek God’s plan for your life in the course of your ministry involvement.
Your college experience can be some of the most exciting years of your life; however, these years can also cause the most stress. During college you may be thinking about careers, a life partner, where to live, and where to work.
As you embark on this new journey, our doors at Student Services will be open if you need someone to talk with. We will not pretend to have all the answers, but we are happy to listen, laugh, cry, and pray with you. We will help you explore your options and seek wisdom from God’s Word. We, as chaplains, are committed to being available for you and helping you to become successful on your journey.
