Faith on a College Campus: Where the Church Meets the World

For students, college is a time to search for meaning, and to make decisions that often impact the rest of their lives. Campus Ministry’s mission is to accompany students on this incredible journey. We strive to equip students to lead lives of deeper meaning, belonging and purpose.  Campus Ministers are privileged to help young people explore life’s big questions, and to stretch them to a place where they can embrace their faith, a faith that may look very different from our own.  Over the span of the past 35 years, I have come to rely on God’s grace to be powerfully active and abundantly available on campus.  While this Church on campus is often misunderstood, the stories of grace that I have heard and witnessed attest to the reality that faith on a college campus is alive and well, vibrant, compelling, and authentic. 

In August, 2003, he began his tenure as the Director of Campus Ministry at John Carroll University.  Prior to coming to Cleveland, he served as the Director of the Newman Catholic Student Center at Southern Illinois University, in Carbondale, IL, and as the Diocesan Director of Campus Ministry for the Diocese of Belleville, IL.  He has also served as the Director of the Catholic Student Center for the University of Miami, in Florida, and the Director of Campus Ministry at Ursuline College.  John has a Master’s degree in Theology from the University of Notre Dame with a concentration in Scripture.  He has been a full time, lay minister in the Catholic Church since 1981.
