The Campus Ministry is a not-for-profit organization that relies heavily on the goodwill of others to keep operating. We are a space of sanctuary for young adults, we work directly in the post secondary institutions and bring the ideologies of liberal Christianity to students through out the Calgary area. We believe it is important to provide students in a secular setting a space where they can explore spirituality, where they can meet like-minded young adults, and where they can feel safe expressing who they are. We are a pluralistic community, open to all, and we advocate for the inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community in all aspects of life and spirituality. We are working to unite people across boundaries, provide students with open and safe spaces, and to show that spirituality works in a university setting.
Each year we interact with over 2,000 young adults. We bring community, connection, acceptance and experiences to these people. We bring community-building drum circles to students every week, free meals and deep conversation during our simple suppers, the experience of contemplative reflection during our worship services, and so much more to students every single day and week. But to keep doing this we need great people to help us along. The staff and resources needed to run all of our programming (and there is a lot of it) are enormous, and of course all of it takes money. Please help us along today to keep bringing spirituality and safe spaces to young adults throughout the Calgary area.
