Pastoral Care

Everyone needs care.

When the road ahead is not clear, when a loss is painful, when questions are nagging, we can all benefit by speaking with a minister. We really aren't made to bear our burdens alone and all of us need someone to listen along the way.

Pastoral Care is a ministry of compassion and guidance offered by someone trained in matters of faith and the soul. Given the many challenges faced in a university setting, students, staff, and faculty can benefit by speaking with a minister from time to time. Questions need asking. Directions need discerning. Wounds need healing. Our chaplains at the Spiritual Life Center and in our residence halls are available to offer the care and guidance you need. When you need us* call us at 710-3517 or feel free just to drop by the Spiritual Life Center.
