Office of the Campus Pastors
The staff in the Office of the Campus Pastors desire to see students’ hearts, souls, and minds be continually transformed by the renewing and redemptive work of God in their lives—as individuals and as valuable parts of the Body of Christ.
The pastors strive to encourage students toward increasing spiritual maturity, offer pastoral care and opportunities for discipleship-focused relationships, and contribute to a growing understanding of the interrelationship of scholarship and discipleship.
Confidential Pastoral Counseling
The campus pastors are available to meet with students individually to listen and provide pastoral counsel and spiritual direction through seasons of distress, indecision, illness, faith development, and celebration, or to simply get to know one another. Call (626) 815-3855 to schedule an appointment.
