WHAT DOES THE DIRECTOR OF RELGIOUS AND SPIRITUAL LIFE DO?
On the whole, the Director of Religious and Spiritual Life's role is to promote the overall well-being of the college by way of his presence and involvement through worship and other liturgical activities such as weddings and memorial services - and through a plethora of programs and support of student-led ministries. In other words, he serves as the pastor to the student, faculty, and staff. He also partners with the Coordinator of Church Relations to build and encourage relationships between the college and the Church that will strengthen their common areas of mission.
