College, church and faith

Getting ready for college includes considering the spiritual home you will find once on campus.

Finding a faith community in college can be challenging. Students who grew up in a local church had those ministries provided during their childhood and teenage years. Now, often for the first time, they need to seek out a place to worship and connect.

In this Get Your Spirit in Shape podcast, “, the Rev. Sheila Bates, former Director of Student Faith and Leadership Formation at the United Methodist Board of Higher Education and Ministry, shares ideas to help students, parents and churches find places to grow in their faith while the students are away at college.
