“Besides providing an entrance into congregational life, the Campus Ministry gave me a foundation for questioning--ways to look at my faith and a place to start growing that faith in community. I had been developing that myself but I needed that place where I could be nurtured and grow.” Michelle Johnson, B.A. “The Campus Ministry has given students strength, hope, encouragement, family, spiritual guidance and fun! It really is a community of Spirit, love and soul.” Katy Speerstra, B.Sc. Student Voices
