College Ministries Welcomes New College Pastor, Don Opitz!

Welcome to College Ministries!

Here you'll find all kinds of information about ministry and worship opportunities on campus. You'll also learn about our mission of Spiritual Formation - be sure to take the spiritual types inventory to discover a bit about your own spiritual personality.

The mission of College Ministries is to engage spiritual formation - the process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of others.1 This mission drives all that we do, whether designing chapel services, supporting the Koinonia small groups ministry, advising the student body chaplains, or helping students discover God in their studies and relationships.

We all come to Messiah College from different experiences of faith, and we all have different spiritual paths before us. Our prayer is that your years here on campus will be transformational - that you will be challenged and encouraged to find strength in your past, grace in your present, and hope in your future.

Most of all, we're here to help. So please take a few moments to meet our staff, explore spiritual formation, and browse the many ministry opportunities available here and across campus.
