From Assistant Dean of Spiritual Formation & Campus Pastor

Chris Shields II:

Chris Shields, II Campus MinisterStudent Spiritual Formation encourages, and shapes spiritual life at Rochester College. These efforts are run through RC’s Campus Ministry.

Campus Ministry seeks to engage the Rochester College community by…

  • Fostering and growing community interaction
  • Providing meaningful, practical, and encouraging opportunities for worship, growth, and fellowship
  • Creating involvement in service, missions, and leadership opportunities

We believe that the richness of the Christian faith is not best expressed as an intellectual knowledge of certain concepts and prescripts; rather, faith should inform, transform, and empower daily living. It should be the practice of a daily walk of a life that values Christ-likeness, service, integrity, and community.

Campus Ministry is committed to a life that embraces the wholeness of individuals and communities and the world around them. We will seek to help each student grasp that part of being a well-rounded, well-educated, and well-equipped person is to have asked and wrestled with the questions of spirituality and faith. We seek to transform our students and our community by incorporating the challenging, dynamic, person of Jesus into every aspect of our lives.
