LOUISVILLE — There is an opportunity for College students involved in Presbyterian Church (USA)-related campus ministries to win prizes for themselves and their ministries in a new contest sponsored by the Higher Education Program Area of the National Ministries Division.

In 50 words or less, participants are required to write how campus ministry has enabled them to grow spiritually, build faithful relationships and affect the world around them.

Three winners of the “Campus Ministry Touched Me” writing contest will be given $250 and the same amount will be given to their respective ministries.

Winning entries will be used in a special campaign promoting PC(USA) higher-education ministries.

Qualifying ministries include those supported only by the PC(USA); ecumenical ministries co-sponsored by the PC(USA); chaplaincies at denomination-related private or public colleges and universities; and ministries with college students supported by PC(USA) congregations.

The contest deadline is Feb. 20. Email entries to [email protected]

Each entry must include the student writer’s full name, email and mailing addresses, the name and address of the PCUSA-related collegiate ministry, and the name and email address of the student’s campus minister, chaplain or collegiate ministry director/pastor.
