Campus Ministry: Faith & Formation Ambassadors
The Faith & Formation Ambassadors are a vibrant group of student leaders who foster Christian community at the University of Portland within the context of each residence hall. Through the collaboration of the Theology Department, Residence Life, Moreau Center, and Campus Ministry the Faith & Formation Ambassadors are supported in their work to actively and critically grow in faith, build community within a particular residence hall and throughout the University, and serve others.
The Faith & Formation Ambassadors live in residence halls on campus actively fostering the Christian community and come together as a cohort for prayer and formation, including a one credit theology seminar. The 2014-15 year will mark the first year of the redesign of the Faith & Leadership House into the Faith & Formation Ambassadors. While residence hall community sizes vary, the program is focused on one and possibly two students per residence hall.
Submission of an application does not commit you to a spot. After reading applications, the team offers interviews and subsequently extend invitations to join the program. The team treats this time as a mutual discernment process. When an applicant receives an invitation to become a Faith & Formation Ambassador, they then have several days to make their choice.
