The Synod of the Trinity
Below are a few quotes from campus ministries supported by the synod.
“Campus ministry is very transient.” —Penn State Behrend
“The campus pastor is mentor, guide, history keeper, and occasional voice of reason, asking hard questions about who will do what by when and theologically reflecting about values and how a program does or doesn’t support those values.” —Marshall University
“Two peer ministers served the ministry areas of worship and social justice. Our worship minister took the lead in planning services; our social justice minister focused on human trafficking and fair trade, developing several campus projects.” —Bloomsburg University
“Thirty-two students traveled to Kentucky to help with relief after a tornado. ‘Where was God in all of this?’ surfaced, and we spent the next three days answering that question. Those who came without giving much thought to God knew there must be a God for people to have survived this devastation.” —West Liberty University
“A Jewish student approached us about celebrating a Seder meal. We were overwhelmed when 40 students attended, including three students from Saudi Arabia with no knowledge of Jewish faith who considered this the chance of a lifetime.” —Mansfield University
“Students are helped with vocational discernment through intentional inclusion of church members in programs and activities. Students hear call stories from other adults and begin to discern their own sense of call.” —Penn State University, State College Presbyterian Church
The Synod of the Trinity serves 16 presbyteries and 1,213 congregations.
