Student-led campus ministries provide vehicles for developing students as Christian leaders and ministers. The focus of the groups ranges from service to evangelism and other forms of ministry. The Coordinator of Student Ministries & Service Learning assists and mentors student leaders in their spiritual growth and ministry leadership through trainings in April and August, then by following up throughout the school year. Special events include Hunger and Homelessness Awareness (HAHA) Week in November, sponsored by YACHT, and Habitat's annual Act, Speak, Build week.
