Student Chaplain

The goals of a Student Chaplain involve leading and directing others in the area of worship, fellowship and study, service and mission.
Student chaplain opportunities include:

  • Overseeing and planning various aspects of the weekly worship service.
  • Organizing events and Bible studies; identifying and encouraging potential student leaders; offering help and guidance to group leaders.
  • Ministering to fellow students in one-on-one weekly meetings that include prayer, Bible reading, and spiritual direction.


Applicants must submit a statement of purpose, letters of recommendation, and meet with the selection committee for an interview.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit Christian ministry seeking to eliminate poverty and homelessness by providing homes to deserving families. Homes are built with the hard work of volunteer laborers, donated materials and monetary donations.

Every year a group of students and advisors travel out of state to help build homes through this organization. In the past, University of Jamestown students have spent their spring breaks lending a helping hand in the warm states of Mississippi, Washington State, Texas, Georgia, New Mexico and Arkansas.

Throughout the school year, fund raising is done to help pay for the student’s trip expenses. Habitat for Humanity provides a great opportunity to meet new people and help others in need while enjoying a different part of the country during spring break! Official Habitat for Humanity Website:
