University Ministries: About

A note from our staff...

 

We take your spiritual journey seriously.  We know that each person who walks onto this campus comes with their own unique story and life experiences.  We all come with our own private hurts, hopes, and dreams for the future.  As your campus pastors, we are honored to walk with you through these years at SPU. We will be here for you, and we are committed to providing a wide variety of programs and resources to help you explore who God has made you to be.

Unlike many other Christian universities around the country, here at SPU we don’t have a ‘ministry requirement’ that students need to fulfill each year. We won’t force you to participate in worship, discipleship, and community service programs. And the reason for this is very simple… we believe that as adults, each of us needs to take responsibility for our own journey. We’re not kids anymore. This is the time in our lives when we all must look carefully at where we’ve come from, and figure out where we want to go from here. We will give you the tools that you need to discover a vibrant and relevant Christian faith for the 21st century – but it’s up to you to choose it for yourself!  And we hope you will.

Through many years of experience, we’ve seen that students who get involved in these ministry programs tend to develop a deeper sense of community and connection here at SPU. These ministries welcome all students from all backgrounds – if you’ve been an active Christian all your life, or if you are exploring faith for the very first time, there is a place here for you. We invite you to use this website to explore each of our worship and discipleship programs on campus to find out more about how you can get involved this year!




 

 

As your campus pastors, we are excited to walk with you this year!
