About the job
CCO Campus Ministry Staff are employees of the CCO, not the schools at which they serve.
CCO staff call college students to serve Jesus Christ with their entire lives. We do this by:
1. Sharing the Gospel with students and developing passionate disciples of Jesus Christ.
2. Serving together with the church and inviting students into the lives of local congregations.
3. Giving students a vision for serving Jesus Christ in their studies, jobs, communities and families.
Covenant EPC is a reformed and gospel-centered 300 person congregation. The church is interested in reinvigorating it's outreach to the next generation at both Belhaven University and Jackson State, both a short distance away.
Belhaven University is a small liberal arts Christian College, with a strong emphasis on the arts. It is one of the only institutions of higher ed in the U.S. that offers degrees in every accredited art major. This position would be best suited for someone with a background in the arts of some kind (i.e. music, theatre, visual, entertainment), who enjoys building things from the ground up, and is effectively at connecting with new people and building relationships quickly.
While the first target campus will be Belhaven University, Covenant EPC is interested in a candidate who, long-term, would have the interest and abilities to help explore ministry inroads at Jackson State. Jackson is one of the largest HBCUs in the country and is less than 10 min down the road.
