Peer Ministers

"Peer Ministry has not only allowed me to grow in my faith life but help others as well. Since starting in ministry, my faith life has grown a lot and I am a lot closer with God and happier with my faith life. Peer Ministry is not only a group of people who have a common goal, it is truly a family!"
- Nicole Reidy

As a Peer Minister, you will help foster the spiritual, emotional and social growth of resident students - meeting them where they are and inviting them to take steps of faith, including:

  • Helping residents grow as persons and as part of a community
  • Providing regular social events, service opportunities, and faith-sharing groups, or COGs (Community Outreach Groups), each semester to nurture community within a respective residence hall
  • Providing personal assistance to those in academic, emotional and spiritual need
