Peer Ministry

As a peer minister, you will actively and intentionally assist the Campus Ministry team in its mission. In many ways, peer ministers serve as ambassadors, connecting to other students and inviting their participation. They also:

  • Assist in planning Liturgies and events
  • Lead or participate in Bible studies, prayer groups, music ministries, and other programs

They say college is where you find yourself, but I don’t think I would have found my true self without my involvement in Campus Ministry. By growing my relationship with Christ, I’ve learned more about myself, grown closer to others, and learned how to listen deeply and respond — skills that I’ll use in my life and career.
