Campus Ministries - Mission M2540
M2540 is a campus wide initiative based on Matthew 25:40 where we understand our call to be engaged with the “least of these” in our local community, our educational region, the United States and in select settings outside of the United States. The initiative is framed by commitments within the areas of Education, Technology, Micro-enterprise/micro-finance and Compassion.
