Our Ministries

Campus Ministries

Dakotas Conference Campus Ministers are busy working with students to change the world in the name of Christ. If your student or if you have any students in your congregation attending one of the following universities, please contact the appropriate campus pastor. Also be sure to tell your students about our Dakotas Conference campus ministries. If your church is interested in starting or expanding a ministry for college students, consider applying for a Young Adult/Campus Ministry Grant.
