Jasmine Evans, M.Div, and Rev. British Hyrams, the authors of College and Young Adult Sunday Worship Resources, are both campus ministers in North Carolina that serve HBCU’s (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). Jasmine is the campus minister at Faith Point Fellowship, a 1001 new worshiping community located in Greensboro, North Carolina. The ministry is hosted by Saint James Presbyterian Church and is birthed out of Saint James’ campus ministry. Located within a ten-mile radius of six colleges—including Bennett College for Women, North Carolina A&T State University, University of North Carolina Greensboro, Greensboro College, Guilford College, and Guilford Technical Community College—Faith Point’s mission is to connect students and young adults to Christ and the community of faith. British is the campus minister at Presbyterian Campus Ministry North Carolina Central University. PCM NCCU, as it is called, is a PC(USA) ministry dedicated to investing in the lives of NCCU Eagles that will go forth and lead the world. The ministry brings students together to make a positive impact on campus and the wider community using Christ-centered faith, the Bible, and the church as their foundation. They are committed to building a community of compassion and acceptance in a non-judgemental environment. An open and affirming community that TRULY welcomes all, PCM NCCU serves students by providing diverse learning and service opportunities centered around spiritual development, service to the community, social justice engagement and fun social experiences.
The best way for college students to get connected to a community of faith while in school is for someone who knows them to share they are coming with the local campus ministry.
