Campus Ministry


Campus Ministry Services

Campus Ministry services are designed to provide college students with the spiritual, moral, and faith-based support and attention necessary to tackle the assortment of obstacles often involved in college attendance. Indiana colleges, whether public, private or faith-oriented, are encouraged to construct services to not only aid in your studies, but to also assist where students often find the most trouble; in their faith, religion, and ministry. 

Discovering the right campus ministry

As we can often be consumed with excelling academically and professionally, it's quite common for us to forget the need to nourish our soul while we're away from our normal environment. Connect campus ministers to any students attending colleges and universities in Indiana where there is a UMC-affiliated campus ministry. The responsibility of campus connect administrators is to aid students in making Christ-centered connections on their college campus. Information gathered will be forwarded directly to the campus minister or chaplain, in order to provide a more personal and effective approach to the student's concerns. 

Helping college students form a lasting spiritual connection

Indiana college campus ministries offer radical hospitality to college students by passing along their names and contact information to a campus minister at their college, in order to ensure that you are well acclimated and that your needs, both spiritual and technical, are being met effectively.  Campus ministry is to be considered as a helping hand in helping students maintain a connection with God, finding time to service Him, finding way to assert his ministry, providing support in various aspects, and to ensure that your spiritual needs are considered. Contact information for campuses that offer campus ministry services is available below:
