Geneva College CCO staff members Becky Case, Lamont Downs, Patrick Emery, Kathy Kinzer-Downs, Kristie Martel, Matthew Talladay, Keith Martel and Terry Thomas are committed to discipleship, evangelism, leadership development, and engaging society through service, justice, and racial righteousness. We work in Residence Life, the Center for Faith and Practice, Multi-Cultural Student Services, and in wilderness ministry through the Pisgah Program.
Specifically, we are engaged in whole-life discipleship with students, including academic faithfulness. We promote involvement with the CCO’s annual Jubilee conference and provide programs throughout the year which help students see the relationship of a Christian worldview to all areas of life.
The Pisgah Program utilizes experiences and adventure activities to challenge students to live faithfully for Christ in all areas of life. Some of the activities the Pisgah Program organizes and facilitates include camping, backpacking, rock-climbing, rappelling, paddling, Bible studies, conferences, group initiatives, and team-building experiences on their 50+ acre ropes course.
In partnership with Geneva’s Center for Faith and Practice, CCO staff provide Bible study training for Geneva students. Students meet with a trainer for an eight-week study focused on a particular book of the Bible and learn inductive Bible study and small-group facilitation skills. Students then lead these studies in their residence halls later in the week.
Our most recent partnership with Geneva College has been established with the office of Multicultural Student Services (MSS). The MSS office works to support, educate, and create awareness amongst the entire campus around issues of race, diversity, and multiculturalism. The MSS office also works to bridge gaps between races, cultures, and people.
Join us for one of these opportunities:
Students involved in leadership opportunities, such as Bible studies, serving on the Jubilee Team, or leading outdoor activities, should contact any of the staff on campus.
