It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Bennett College and introduce you to Campus Ministry and Religious Life!
As you prepare to come to Bennett, you will pack many items: pillows, blankets, books, stuffed animals and treasured photographs. In addition, you have a list of those belongings you do not want to forget. Let me make a suggestion. Don’t forget to bring your God-given gifts. As you equip yourself for future service to your family, community and the world, we invite you to continue to “stir up the gift on God that is in you.” 2 Timothy 1:6
The Office of the Chaplain offers vast opportunities for you to remain engaged. The participants of Campus Ministry include: Belles of Harmony Gospel Choir; Student Christian Fellowship; Spirit of David Dance Ministry (Liturgical and Mime sections); and United Methodist Students. Although our members are many and our gifts vary, we are one body in Jesus Christ.
Bennett College is a United Methodist related college and we respect diversity. When you arrive, you will receive a brochure listing various churches, worship centers, mosques and temples to help you stay connected to God in ways that are familiar to you. It is our hope that you find a faith community that meets your needs for continued growth, service, and fellowship.
If you need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to greeting you in person!
In God’s service,
