Ministries and Outreach
Campus Life provides advisory support and training for three organizations that do ministry and outreach in local settings and abroad: Potter's Clay, Urban Initiative and Emmaus Road.
Chapel is our community's "homeroom," where we regularly gather our diverse community together to experience our unity in Christ. Through exposure to different styles of worship, and listening to a broad variety of voices from different contexts, we learn to appreciate different forms and traditions of worship, and benefit from listening to the broad collective voice of the global Church.
