WNCC Campus Ministers Attend United Methodist Campus Ministry Association Summer Institute at Duke Divinity School
July 14, 2023
By: Cindy Turner, Chairperson, Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry
This week, the campus ministers from all eight Wesley Foundations in the WNCC plus the chaplain from Greensboro College attended the United Methodist Campus Ministry Association's Summer Institute at Duke Divinity School. Our Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry provided stipends for each campus minister to attend and receive continuing education, support, renewal as they prepare for another year of ministry with college students all across the Conference. They participated in workshops on topics such as mental health, working with churches, digital marketing, fundraising, spiritual direction, and vocational exploration with students. Campus ministries represented at this event were Wesley-Luther at UNC Greensboro, Appalachian Wesley at Appalachian State, Niner United at UNC Charlotte, Wesley Foundation at Western Carolina University, Winston-Salem Wesley Foundation at Wake Forest University, R.E.A.L. at NC A&T University, Common Ground at Lees-McRae College, Asheville Wesley at UNC Asheville, and Greensboro College.
Please be in prayer for these campus ministers throughout the year and for the students they serve!
