Chaplain’s Message

Union College is about you—and God—and how to make Him work in your life every day as you prepare to make the biggest decisions of your life—career, life partner, place to live, and "What will you do with this man called Jesus?". We in Campus Ministries are here to help create the environment and the opportunities for you to grow in your relationship with Jesus. Our doors are open and our hearts are lifted to God in prayer for you. If there is any way we can help you please let us know. E-mail me by just clicking here. Our goal is to make you successful as a Christian and to make Christianity work in your every day life. Let us know how we are doing and what we can do more effectively for you. We're here to serve God and you as best we can.

One specific thing that happens on the campus of Union College to encourage regular spiritual growth and sharing that has not been shared at other places on our Web site is "Good Morning Union," our daily devotion via e-mail that goes to our entire school family. Each day we read together, share together, and discuss together a significant part of God's Word. We offer our daily worship experience to anyone who would like to receive it. Just click on the "here" above and request it. I'll be happy to add you to our growing list of participants. Daily worship on the campus of Union College is alive and well, high-tech, and available to all. Join us via email if you can't be a regular member of our school family. My prayer is every day that God will guide us into a deeper understanding of Him and His love through His Word and the fellowship of His believers on the campus of Union College.

Have a great day.

But he mostly loves being a grandpa—eight times over!
