Campus Ministry

Devoted to serving God and one another.

Pfeiffer University's campus ministry unites students from all religious traditions, including those who might be exploring faith for the first time. All students are welcome to worship, serve and grow. Regardless of your religious tradition or experience, campus ministry supports your faith journey.

Our core values:

  • Everything we do is intended to be a grateful and faithful response to God's gifts to us.
  • Every person has equal and infinite worth.
  • Every disciple of Jesus Christ is a minister of the Gospel and part of the ministry of all Christians gifted, called and responsive in ways reflective of the apostles.
  • Everything we do is created in covenant with the Divine and one another.
  • We value and are open to recognizing moments of synchronicity and, when appropriate, integrating them into our practice of health and holiness.

Join us for:

  • Social activities
  • Musical worship
  • Missions planning and support
  • Bible studies
  • Faith support

Your Spiritual Journey

Campus ministry fosters the academic, spiritual, physical, emotional and servant leadership development of students, faculty, staff and others. As a Christ-centered community, we participate in spirited worship and in faith-forming Christian education opportunities in a variety of settings and configurations.

Within the Wesleyan ethos of the United Methodist tradition, we live our vision, mission and core values through:

  • Teaching and Learning - We gain experience teaching what we learn about Christian education, mission education and implementation, ministries with people of all ages, worship, liturgical arts, church music, outdoor education/adventure learning and church administrations.
  • Discipleship - We nurture faith development and expression of faith and beliefs.
  • Social Justice - Working in conjunction with the Francis Center for Servant Leadership and Faith Formation, we provide opportunities to discern avenues of service in the church and surrounding area.
  • Mission - We care for the physical and spiritual needs of the least, last and lost.
  • Worship - We gather for a variety of worship experiences and styles throughout the week and on special occasions.
  • Community - We submit to Christ-centered accountability, the membership covenant and one another as we foster and celebrate our interdependence and common life.
  • Evangelism - We invite people into relationships, discovering and knowing Jesus Christ and the community of mission.
