Campus Ministry in the NC Synod is strong and varied. It’s been said, “When you’ve seen one campus ministry, you’ve seen one campus ministry.” That is certainly true in our synod! Each of the 12 campus ministries is unique in its context and structure. Some are connected to a congregation that is very close to campus: NC State, East Carolina, UNC Chapel Hill, NC Central, Duke, and Appalachian State. Others may be connected to a congregation that is several miles from the campus but there is dedicated space on campus for the ministry: Western Carolina, Wake Forest, and UNC Pembroke. Others are ecumenical and receive support from several congregations: Elon, UNC Charlotte, and UNC Greensboro.
