The Office of Faith & Practice

Eastern University's Office of Faith and Practice (OFP) -- consisting of the University Chaplain, Coordinator of Student Ministries & Service Learning, the Chapel Worship Team Advisor, and an Administrative Assistant--facilitates the spiritual formation of students through weekly chapels and other worship services and Bible studies, campus ministries, service learning opportunities, missions trips, mentoring and teaching.  The OFP strives to make all our ministries, programs and interactions with students an opportunity for spiritual formation.

Theresa is also a  songwriter and worship leader. Her ministry is designed to equip believers to live a lifestyle of  worship and prayer (www.theresanoye.com).  Her debut EP, "You Saw Me",  reflects songs written during her personal worship time, drawing on her faith while navigating through her family's journey of autism with their son, Regal.

"I have been at Eastern for over 15 years because I really love college students and feel that God called me to work with them especially in the area of Music, Prayer and Worship. I moved here from Brooklyn, NY, and being a product of the 'city that never sleeps' explains my affinity for late-night experiences and excitement.  I don't get out much these days though because I spend most of my nights with my beautiful family. My husband and I, and my son & daughter, live on campus as Resident Life Staff and love hanging out with Eastern students. Three things to know about me:  I love worship, I love my family and I love to eat."
