Ministry Location: Vancouver Island University, Nanaimo, BC
Ministry Focus: Campus Ministry
Robyn’s university career started at Vancouver Island University in 2014, but she didn’t know anything about University Christian Ministries (UCM) until she transferred to Simon Fraser University (SFU) in her second year. UCM became her home away from home as she was welcomed into a community of students who were also trying to figure out how their faith, academics, and life all fit together. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Honours Mathematics, she was very much an academic and career focused student.
Throughout Robyn’s degree, God was calling her to share His love with university students at every opportunity and she slowly found that she was on campus more to make disciples than to go to class. Upon graduation, Robyn had the opportunity to do ministry at SFU full time through the Campus Ministry Apprenticeship program, after which she and her husband moved back home so she could raise her daughter on the family farm. She is beyond excited to be back at her old campus!
