Campus Ministry

Dakotas Conference Campus Ministers are busy working with students to change the world in the name of Christ. If you have any students in your congregation at Black Hills State University, Dakota Wesleyan University, North Dakota State University, South Dakota State University, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, or University of South Dakota, please contact the appropriate campus minister to let them know.
