The Coordinator of Faith & Community Life is a 12-month position that is responsible for developing and overseeing opportunities to deepen and form the faith of our undergraduate students through communal experiences. The Coordinator will play a strong role in forming student leaders and overseeing opportunities for students to grow in their faith and in their understanding of our Jesuit tradition.

Under the direction and guidance of the Assistant Director of Campus Ministry and Retreat Programs, the Coordinator is responsible for overseeing 2-3 retreats a year. This will involve supporting and supervising Student Coordinators, working with Retreat Leaders, creating, and leading meaningful prayer experiences, coordinating schedules and transportation, and other tasks related to leading a retreat.

A new function of this role will be to explore, discern, and build a residence hall ministry. Within their first year, the Coordinator will collaborate closely with staff members of Residential Life and Campus Ministry to discern best practices for bringing Creighton’s Jesuit mission into our on-campus residence halls. With the support of both departments, the Coordinator will be responsible for launching, overseeing, and growing this ministry. The Coordinator will also serve on the Cortina Advisory Board to support sophomores living in this residential community.

The Coordinator will also be responsible for working with student leaders to coordinate Agape Latte, a monthly speaker event that invites students to hear from leader on campus and to reflect on their faith.

The Coordinator will work collaboratively as an integral member of the Campus Ministry team and the Division of Mission and Ministry to assist emerging adults in their faith development including, but not limited to: covering regular shifts on the Campus Ministry On-Call phone to provide pastoral care to students, offering spiritual companionship, and supporting larger Campus Ministry events throughout the year.
