2016 Worship TeamHigher Education and Campus Ministry are key, related concerns of the Eastern PA Conference and its entire denomination. Higher education has been part of the bedrock of United Methodism from its inception. We affiliate with campus ministries at four institutions in our region, and we are exploring relationships with others as well. Indeed, Campus Ministry is as much about relationships as religion. College students and churches benefit mutually from facilitated encounters as they learn, share and grow in Christ and in community. Campus Ministry can change lives, change churches and ultimately, change the world.

Campus Ministry Sunday: Nurturing students’ spiritual life

By the Rev. Daniel Lebo
Coordinator of Spiritual Life at Lebanon Valley College (Annville, PA), and Pastor of Annville UMC

The Office of Spiritual Life at Lebanon Valley College is unique in providing opportunities for students from a variety of faith backgrounds to engage with other spiritually minded students on campus. This allows us to provide diversity in our programming.

Our monthly interfaith dialogues, coordinated with the religion and philosophy department on campus, are one example. Each session focuses on a particular topic and allows faith leaders from major world religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Atheism) to speak for their communities and discuss similarities and differences in their traditions. Topics in the past school year included Death, Desire, Race and Religion, Faith and Reason, and Other Religions. Read more…
