Campus Ministry Council
The purpose of
the Campus Ministry Council is to act as a decision-making body for campus
ministry issues, within the context of the jurisdiction granted
the Ministry Council by ASSP, the Perkins Center, and the Office of University Ministries
(and specifically excluding those decisions
which fall within individual position descriptions).
Campus Ministries Council (CMC) shall be chaired by the ASSP VPM, and shall consist of the following members: Urban Involvement (UI) Coordinator, GROUP Coordinator, SPRINT Coordinator, the two Campus Student Ministry Coordinators (CSMCs), Chapel Coordinator, Latreia Coordinator, Sharpen
Coordinator, Relinquish Coordinator, Catalyst Ministry Coordinator and two ASSP Senators, with the Directors of the OUM and JPC, and all staff advisors serving as ex-officio members.
Selection: Final Selection of all coordinators
rests with the Campus Ministry Council. A review committee consisting
of the current coordinator, the vice president of ministries,
VPM-elect, and the designated advisor from OUM/CFW or the Perkins Center reviews
applications and conducts interviews.
The review committee nominates
one candidate to Campus Ministry Council for final approval. CMC considers nominations
and either approves the nomination or refers it back to the review
committee for reconsideration. If CMC refers a nomination to the
review comittee, the committee reopens the application process.
CMC typically completes its selection process within three weeks

All decisions require a two-thirds majority vote. The CMC also supports
and prays for the ongoing ministries within the organization.
