I’m in Chicago to continue work with the Presbyterian Church USA Collegiate Ministries (Ukirk) Fundraising Resource Team. Our goal is to formalize and launch a system of training and support for Collegiate ministers and ministries. The realities of fundraising are changing drastically and rapidly. Campus ministries need new systems to address these new challenges and the goal of the team is to help meet these needs. I’ll update you on progress along the way.
Tomorrow I travel to the Funding Your Ministry Symposium at the Glen Eyrie Conference Center, near Colorado Springs. I will be attending this event with Adrian McMullen, Associate for Collegiate Ministries with the Presbyterian Mission Agency. Our goal is to build the base from which we offer support to Presbyterian collegiate ministries and ministers with fundraising in these times of high change and high need. I always enjoy time with Adrian and the opportunity to catch-up on what is happening on the national college ministry scene. I am also looking forward to visiting Glen Eyrie. I have heard about it over the years and this will be my first visit.
