The University Ministry Center provides a variety of distinct avenues of spiritual growth, including committed Christian service to the surrounding community and abroad. The ministry center plans chapel services and oversees student ministry opportunities, spiritual formation and integration, short-term mission trips, and volunteer opportunities.
Chapel services at the university provide a time and place for a central expression of our worship and identity as an academic community of believers with a deep commitment to Christ. Students join together on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 10:00 am in either the Chatlos Chapel or Holmes Hall. Each semester, the UMC organizes new chapel topics, inviting guest speakers, authors, musicians, and pastors from the area.
Student Chaplains provide spiritual leadership to the student body through example, dialogue, and intentional service to the university community. Chaplains are selected by Student Life and meet regularly to discuss and coordinate spiritual formation events and chapel services.
At Cairn University, students have many opportunities to engage with the world around them and serve the people they meet. Through mission trips, students impact individuals and communities both in the United States and around the world.
Ministry Opportunity Week
At the beginning of each fall semester, the University Ministry Center sponsors Ministry Opportunity Days. Representatives from local churches and ministries visit campus and connect with students who may be interested in serving with their organization.
