As the bible verse above hints at, Campus Ministry does not often attract quiet types. Assuredly some of this can be attributed to individual personalities, but an important element of this “proneness to proclamation” comes with the job. If what we say is true about the Gospel, the good news, what kind of people would we be if we did not tell of it whenever we have the chance?
Here at Mercy College, “having the chance” takes on new meaning! As a predominately commuter school, the “traditional” opportunities those in campus ministry at more residential colleges are perhaps more “lean.” But beyond this being a challenge, it is most certainly an opportunity, even a blessing, as well.
