MISSION CANADA CAMPUS WORKER
Ministry Location: University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) and Durham College, ON
Ministry Focus: Campus Ministry
After more than 15 years in youth ministry, Jeff now provides spiritual direction and support to post-secondary students. As a campus worker, Jeff is active on the campus of University of Ontario Institute of Technology/Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario, coming alongside Campus Church, the existing student-led ministry. As part of the pastoral advisory team, Jeff works with two other clergy to support students in ministry and outreach to the campus. He speaks at on-campus services and events and meets with students for times of discipleship. For years, Jeff has been committed to a "ministry of being there." By being on campus, whether in a formal role at a Campus Church event or by sitting in the cafeteria talking to students, Jeff strives to be the hands and feet of Jesus to students, being a listening ear, sharing an encouraging word, or even a challenging word with students on their turf.
