CAMPUS MINISTRY

Campus Ministry

OC Tech Services / Tuesday, June 25, 2019

 

Sparking lively dialogue about the powerful implications of the Christian faith for academic work and personal life, through scholarly campus forums and small group formation.

Dr. Gordon E. Carkner, the Director of Graduate & Faculty Campus Ministries, along with his wife Ute love connecting with future global leaders within the graduate student university community. Through hospitality, biblical investigation, prayer and discussions of faith and academic studies, these students are drawn into kingdom concerns and introduced to God's powerful agape love. This is a transformational experience that builds community at the crux of high achievement passion, loneliness and stress. With a team of faculty, the ministry mines the wisdom of the ages, employing excellent Christian scholarship.
