About Graduate and Faculty Ministries

We encourage and equip graduate students and faculty to follow Christ as they seek to be a redeeming influence among the people, ideas, and structures of the university and professions.

Our primary strategy is to plant and grow witnessing communities of serious disciples within the vocational context of the campus. The staff of Graduate and Faculty Ministries serve on campus to guide these communities and to provide resources for students and faculty as they seek to follow Christ.

Our Four Ministry Commitments

Our campus staff ministers invite students and faculty to embrace the following ministry commitments in reliance on God’s Spirit:

Spiritual Formation

We cultivate intimacy with God and growth in Christ-like character through personal and corporate disciplines, including the rigorous study of Scripture and regular prayer that expresses our faith, love, and dependence on God.


We gather as communities of graduate students and faculty to learn and worship, to challenge and care for each other, and to serve as a welcoming place for believers and seekers alike. We pursue ethnic reconciliation by practicing grace and truth and by promoting personal and systemic justice. We also encourage students and faculty to be active members in their local congregations.

Evangelism & Service

We demonstrate and proclaim the gospel within the university and professions with love and boldness, calling all to repentance, faith, and new life in Jesus Christ. We join with God's people to serve in our communities and to extend his kingdom cross-culturally on campus and around the world.

Integration of Faith, Learning & Practice

We engage in learning and biblical reflection in every area of life and seek a unity of knowledge and practice, because the God whom we worship is Creator of all. We labor to form leaders in every field who honor God's gifts and calling. We believe that the integrity of these pursuits will be a witness of his kingdom to the academic and professional worlds.
