Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. Psalm 84:5
University of Cincinnati
Campus Staff Minister
University of Cincinnati is home to over 10,500 graduate students, 20% of which are international students. Cincinnati provides the perfect backdrop for the graduate experience, offering academic-corporate partnerships, exciting career opportunities, and all the big-city amenities in an area with an affordable cost of living. On campus, there’s a welcoming graduate community and a vast array of environments. Stately buildings and lush greenspaces provide space to learn, study and create, while UC's commitment to #NextLivesHere is taking physical shape in new and upcoming campus facilities, designed to keep UC at the forefront of innovation and discovery.
Description: InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s Graduate and Faculty Ministries (GFM) is seeking a Campus Staff Minister (CSM) for the University of Cincinnati. This CSM will re-plant a ministry, establishing and advancing communities of graduate students, professional students, and faculty who give expression to our core commitments. Nascent ministries exist with graduate students and faculty communities; we seek someone who can build and grow these networks.
Requirements: In addition to qualities that all GFM Staff should possess, this person will be in a planting context and will need strong gifts in leadership and a commitment to evangelism. He/she will engage and initiate with a diversity of people, cast vision for a robust Christian presence in academic departments, and gather students and faculty into communities centered on mission. All staff are expected to raise their ministry budget and will receive training in Ministry Partner Development. All applicants must be able to express a strong sense of calling to this mission.
