Welcome to Millersville University and United Campus Ministry! We meet “@ the Back Door” behind the A-frame church, 121 N George Street.
A scan on Facebook these days shows many people participating in one form or another of giving thanks through their Status updates. Today, I want to give thanks in a similar way. Last fall, I was hired as the Director and Campus Pastor for United Campus Ministry at Millersville University. As we continued to develop my position description, one theme that came up again and again was that of being a prophetic voice to campus. As it is with Biblical prophets, when you share a prophetic message, some people want to listen, and others just want to shut you out. I have had the distinct privilege to work on a prophetic project this year in which there doesn’t seem to be many voices of dissent. Last year we identified that there was a problem with some of our Millersville University students having enough food or money for food. Some were going without 1-2 meals a week, some have reported going without food for 1-2 days a week. As we continued to hear stories, we also began to do some more research. This is a problem for students at many universities throughout the nation.
The solution became clear! Students need to have food! We have begun a partnership with Millersville University, local churches, and the Central PA FoodBank to host a free student market called the Campus Cupboard. It is open on Fridays from 2-4:30pm. We have been open 3 weeks into this semester and have had 11, 13, 19 visitors respectively.
Check out our Campus Cupboard Tab to learn more!
