          Please join us every Thursday night at 7p.m. at Van Houten South (on the side opposite Pogue Student Center). Spend time growing strong relationships in community and hear from speakers on topics relevant to college students. Come check out the relaxed environment and connect with friends. We look forward to seeing you!

          Ecumenical Spirituality Center

          The Ecumenical Spirituality Center in McNerney Hall features private rooms for prayer, counseling and meditation, office space for campus ministry organizations, and a non-denominational worship space.

          Freshmen Orientation

          Campus Ministry reaches out to first-year students by participating in Freshmen Orientation. Members assist with freshmen Move-In and affiliated clubs host a table at Club Rush.

          Lenten Luncheons

          Lenten Luncheons are a community event held every Wednesday during Lent from noon to 1 p.m. at the Edinboro United Methodist Church. Enjoy a light lunch followed by a Lenten Reflection at 12:30 p.m.

          Listening Post

          Campus Ministry knows that college life can present many challenges. On Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Pogue Student Center, it offers a place for students to stop and discuss their concerns or get some words of encouragement. The Listening Post is staffed with volunteers from local churches who have completed a training program.


          Individual student ministry groups on campus offer retreats and conferences each year. Often these groups join other students from across the state or various regions for these gatherings. For more information, contact the Newman Student Association or CRU listed under Affiliated Organizations.

          Sabbath Vespers Service

          Join us Friday evenings from 5 - 5:30 p.m. in the Campus Ministry Center for a Christian vesper service. Music (great musicians welcome) and study topic will vary. Enjoy fellowship and light refreshments as well. Come as you are. All are welcome.


          Campus Ministry provides workshops for professional and personal development by request. Many topics can be addressed, including: living your faith, dating and relationships, faith and science, social justice, non-traditional forms of prayer, religion and politics.

          Community Service

          The Campus Ministry Cooperative, together with various student ministry groups, offers a variety of service opportunities each year. Examples include:
