Young people are important to our church and society. Helping students nurture their spirituality - alongside physical health and intellectual growth - leads to wholistic well-being and future success. Campus ministry builds off the investments made by churches and families in the spiritual development of young people, and equips them to be leaders in our churches, workplaces, and communities.
ECM is funded entirely by our partner denominations, supportive individuals, and a small number of local congregations. UofG contributes office space and minor administrative support. We are always seeking new partners to make ECM’s ministry sustainable.
Partner as an Individual:
Whether you are alumni, parents of students, local participants in ECM programs, or someone who believes in the importance of campus ministry - ECM would love to be in partnership with you and receive your support. We are in need of…
- financial contributions (one-time or monthly gifts, eligible for tax receipts)
- gifts in kind (food for our weekly community meals or volunteering with events)
- prayer support (be part of our prayer network)
Partner as a Group / Church:
Similarly, ECM seeks partnership with churches, committees, service groups, and businesses. Adding ECM to your annual budget makes a huge difference towards making this campus ministry sustainable; annual investments of $1000 to $3000 are most common and greatly appreciated. Organizing volunteers to serve one of our community meals is both helpful and rewarding (and really fun). ECM Board members are always happy to speak with your leadership team or group members about what a partnership might look like.
