What is a Peer Minister?

Peer Ministers serve as mentors, a caring presence, and role models to students, being available to peers, fostering relationships, creating program and spiritual growth opportunities, and connecting students in need of spiritual care with the pastoral staff of the Chapel of the Resurrection. The majority of the Peer Ministers live in the residence halls and are an integral part of both the Residence Life team and the Chapel ministry.

Peer Ministers serve students by offering welcome, guidance, compassion support, and accompaniment through intentional relationships. Peer Ministers provide a safe place for all students to question, ponder, explore, grow and develop an understanding of self amid the spiritual journey.  Peer Ministers are an extension of, and provide a connection to, the pastoral ministry of the Chapel of the Resurrection. 

As integral members of both the Residential Life and Campus Ministry staffs, Peer Ministers attend regular hall staff meetings, actively participate in regular team meetings, and work closely with the Resident Assistants to facilitate spiritual programming within the residence halls.

Deadline to apply for Peer Minister is midnight, Feb. 14, 2019. This job is listed through Handshake.
