The Office of Campus Ministry is located on the first floor of Mercy Hall. The office supports the spiritual growth of all members of the university community. Our vision of ministry calls us to:
- Gather a diverse and vibrant faith community for worship, prayer, reflection and fellowship.
- Witness to the good news of Jesus Christ and a Catholic vision of wholeness which embraces diversity and solidarity.
- Cultivate faith-filled leaders who have the capacity to transform their communities and their world.
- Animate the GCU community to live our Mercy identity through compassionate service and advocacy of justice.
Campus ministry’s staff is dedicated to serving the entire academic community - including students, faculty and staff. It regularly partners with a variety of GCU offices, departments, student clubs and other campus organizations. The office plans and coordinates a wide range of spiritual programs such as prayer services, retreats and interfaith experiences. It is also a campus hub for volunteer work, service learning and social justice programs/events. The campus ministers are available to confidentially discuss personal, religious, and moral concerns. Campus ministry is open and welcoming to all, regardless of faith, race, age or gender identity.
The Office of Campus Ministry also provides for the sacramental life of the community.
