Our staff provides support for our chaplains and campus ministers, and serves as a contact point for the Commission Members. The staff supports the numerous ministries around the state by assisting with finances, vision, programming, and more.

Our Chaplains and Campus Ministers are located at 27 different colleges and universities in Georgia, serving students and equipping them to be disciple-makers in their college years and beyond.

The Commission Members, from both the North and South Georgia Conferences, are a group of clergy and laity that exist to guide, support, and enable the higher education ministries of the United Methodist Church to spread the Gospel on their campuses.
