Higher Education / Campus Ministries

Campus Ministries

Emerging Ministries: Is God calling you or your congregation to start a campus ministry?

The Commission on Higher Education & Campus Ministry can help! We can provide resources for United Methodists in the NYAC to reach out to college campuses, establish an effective campus ministry board, and gain support within the school’s administration for a United Methodist ministry. We also have some funds to help start campus ministries with local institutions of higher education in their communities. To apply for funding, please contact:
