Campus Ministry Support ($56,000)
This scene plays itself out on the campus of Rochester College every week: A student comes into the office of an employee, and asks, “Can I talk with you for a moment?” The student is new to this “thing” called Christianity. The employee notices the student’s uneasy behavior —emotions just under the surface. The student says, “I’ve never experienced love and acceptance like I have on this campus. I want to know what makes this place so different?”
It’s time to talk about Jesus.
It doesn’t happen by chance. It happens because we’re intentional about sharing our individual journeys of faith with students — in classrooms, in the residence halls, in chapel services, on the basketball court and at special events. Helping students move forward in their journey of faith requires an intentional effort on the part of Rochester College. The group that spearheads this effort is Campus Ministry.
Raise up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he shall not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). College is the last training ground before students enter the world. Help us cement the truth into their lives. Something WILL influence them; help us give the Campus Ministry team the support it needs to BE the defining influence for our students.
