Why I love being a campus pastor: I believe abundant life comes from being deeply connected to the sacred in ourselves, others, and the world around us – just as Jesus said. As a campus pastor, I actually get paid to have experiences of that really amazing connection as students share their lives with me while flipping pancakes on Wednesday mornings, or we have faith conversations around candles in the prayer room during Monday night class, or we share bread and wine and prayer and peace at worship on Thursdays, or we set out to explore how our lives can make a difference in our local community or on a spring break service and learning trip. My life has been changed, deepened, stretched and made holy by the students I have had the pleasure of standing with. It is the best job in the world!
