Conference Council on Campus Ministries hosts training for local campus ministry boards
Rev. John Weaver, Executive Director/Campus Minister at Middle Tennessee State University Wesley Foundation lead the board training.
A variety of topics including how to recruit and develop a local board, fundraising, and supporting a campus minister’s well-being were discussed. Opportunity was given for the members of each local board to meet, get together in small groups to discuss their learnings and to create a plan of practice to implement things they learned during the training.
On Saturday the campus ministers ate lunch together to share with one another the ways they had seen God move in their campus ministries over the last year to share their ideas for how they can partner together and learn from one another.
The Council on Campus Ministry is charged with providing training that will equip local campus ministry boards to support local campus ministers. It is council’s intent for this gathering to occur annually.
