InterVarsity is seeking a campus minister to serve law students and professors at the 5 law schools in the Research Triangle Area near Durham, NC. This part of North Carolina is home to 5 law schools including one at a historically Black school, North Carolina Central University.
The Triangle’s Law Schools include:
· Duke University – 700 students
· University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – 700 students
· North Carolina Central University – 600 students
· Campbell University – 300 students
· Elon University – 300 students
With existing law student fellowships on four of the five campuses and a Christian Legal Society attorney group in Raleigh, the area is rich with opportunities to grow and build InterVarsity Graduate Christian Fellowships on these campuses in collaboration with local attorneys and the Christian Legal Society.
A strong candidate will be able to build witnessing communities of law students and networks in and around the university context—with law students, attorneys, and InterVarsity ministry partners in the city. Candidates should be self-starters who demonstrate a passion for building witnessing communities, strong interpersonal skills, prior Christian leadership, strategic thinking, and the ability to navigate a dynamic relationship with the university and the legal academy. Theological education or a law degree would be an asset.
The law school ministry specialist will meet regularly with the Blue Ridge Graduate & Faculty Ministries team, assist in creating and implementing Triangle-wide programs, and raise personal and ministry funds.
