At the beginning of this academic year, I became an Adjunct Chaplain at Methodist University.
Find me on the MU website here.
What does this mean? Here’s my September Newsletter article about it:
Dear Peace Family,
This past month at Peace, in partnership with the Office of Religious Life at Methodist University, we have started a new ministry created for college students on Wednesday nights called MU @ Peace. We have had several people working hard to create a welcoming space for them to gather in our Christian Education hallway–if you havenâ€™t seen it, please stop and visit. The room looks great!
Part of our partnership includes me becoming an Adjunct Chaplain at MU, an opportunity I am very excited about.
The Adjunct part of my title recognizes that Iâ€™m not the university chaplain, but rather I am serving in a way that assists the chaplain–Rev. Kelli Taylor.
The Chaplain part of my title recognizes that Iâ€™m acting professionally as a pastor at an organization thatâ€™s not a church.
Basically, I will serve Methodist University in the following ways:
- I will have office hours on campus on Tuesdays from 2-4 p.m. for any students who need a friend, some prayer, or help preparing to lead their Bible Studies.
- I will lead worship at University Chapel one time each semester.
- I will support Rev. Kelli Taylor in her work as University Chaplain.
Thank you for being a church that supports me as I seek to engage our community and represent Peace Presbyterian Church outside of our building! Please pray for me, for the MU @ Peace Team, and for students and faculty on the MU campus–and all college campuses.
Grace and Peace,
