Be a Barnabas

Apply to join a team of students dedicated to walk alongside their peers in the dorms as they seek God. As a Barnabas team member, you will serve as a spiritual friend to the people on your floor, initiate Bible studies and help plan dorm worship. As you serve in this role, you will be equipped, encouraged, and mentored in your own faith and leadership skills by your residence director (RD), a campus ministries intern and the associate chaplain for residence life.
