|Be a Chapel Ambassador
|Would you like to become a more visible faith mentor for students, combat the culture of busyness on campus, and be more intentional about living out our calling as a college of faith and learning? If so, it’s fairly simple to do. Close your office door or tell your supervisor that you want to attend Weekday Chapel. Attend Chapel as often as you are able, and put up a small sign (provided by Spiritual Life and Campus Ministry) that identifies you as a Chapel Ambassador who is open to talking about faith with students, faculty, and staff. Interested? Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions? Contact Pastor Brian or Pastor Ramona.
