Retreats and Conferences
During October, our Fall Retreat is a refreshing and fun time of getting away from campus and stress, while learning more about God and yourself. Through this retreat, friendships are made and deepened, and together we learn what God is calling us to do right on the campus of UD. Our Winter Retreat is held in February, where the topic year-to-year addresses ways we can allow God to be Lord over different areas of our lives and experience more of what God provides for us.
As students get involved in various leadership roles, other conferences and getaways are coordinated for the purpose of leadership-development. And every three years, students are able to attend Urbana Student Missions conference.
Campus Ministry at UD seeks to foster mutually beneficial partnerships with other ministry organizations, and that has certainly been the case with InterVarsity. We have benefitted from various conferences and leadership training provided by IVCF staff. Learn more about InterVarsity in general, or specifically about Black Campus Ministries, the Nursing Fellowship, or their Greek Ministry. Interested in helping out with IVCF’s efforts, even starting an official chapter? Let us know!
This student group and others can operate on campus with the support of Campus Ministry. Such groups can have an official presence as a chapter, being willing to be a part of the Christian Leadership Council. Additionally, they can be recognized as a student organization with such rights and responsibilities by following the process put forth by SGA. If you are a part of a Christian group that you think would benefit Campus Ministry, contact us at UDMinistry@dbq.edu.
