ChapleCampus Ministry is the source of spiritual leadership in student life. As a part of the Division of Student Affairs, the Campus Ministry seeks to help students develop their path to holistic develop by providing resources to expand their understanding of the connection between academic development and one’s own personal development. Florida Memorial University was founded by the Baptist Home Mission and believes that a relationship with the divine is essential. Campus Ministry is housed at the Susie C. Holley Religious Center, located across from the front gate. Named after former State of Florida Women’s President Susie C. Holley, the chapel is the spiritual center of our campus and provides students, faculty and staff with worship, study and counseling support through ecumenical Christian outreach.

The mission of the Campus Ministry is to establish God’s presence at every level of our university. The Dean is campus pastor and performs a variety of tasks, including hospital visitation, counseling and participation in major university events such as Freshman Convocation, Founders’ Day and Baccalaureate. The Dean is campus pastor and seeks to build strong relationships with students to encourage them not to neglect their spiritual growth and development. As a university campus, we are also mindful of our interfaith responsibility to nourish all students regardless of their beliefs.

Students are invited to participate in the Campus Ministry. Student ministers are invited to become members of the Chapel Ambassadors, students who assist in the implementation of the ministry across the campus and support worship and Bible Study. Since the chapel is the campus church, it is open to all students to display their skills in music, dance, poetry and leadership.
