Campus Ministry

Faith matters at Grand View University. Whether you are a committed Christian, a seeker, a doubter, or you are not sure, you are welcome. Come find community, support, and opportunities to think critically about faith and life with others. There is a place for you in the Grand View faith community!

Welcome From the Campus Pastor

Pastor Russ Lackey"Sow for yourselves righteousness and reap steadfast love, that God may come and rain righteousness upon you” (Hosea 10:12).

Since its inception, Grand View has sought to sow the seeds of faith into the lives of young people. The fruit of this original vision has manifest itself in many ways from chapel services, Bible studies, service trips, vocational discernment, enjoyment of God’s creation, and much more. This school has helped send graduates into ministry as pastors, missionaries, deacons, and other church professions. In addition, all students leave knowing the importance of service to their neighbors through their vocations.

Campus Ministry at Grand View is designed to assist students in their faith journey. Of course, this looks different for each student. For some, their growth occurs at campus ministry events. For others, it is nurtured through deep conversations in the student center. For all, it occurs when we offer a listening ear and share the love of Jesus.

On behalf of the campus ministry staff, theology department, and student ministry team, I welcome you to explore the many opportunities to engage faith at Grand View.

May you sow righteousness and reap love,

Russ Lackey
