Campus Ministry Retreat Leaders choose to take an active role in sharing their faith as they build a faith community on Marquette’s campus. For some, this is easy and something they have done in the past. For others, this may be their first experience of leading others within a faith context. The retreat director is supportive of this important student ministry and along with Campus Ministry in general provides students tools, training, and a supportive community which enables students to lead a retreat for their peers.
Retreat leaders come from a diverse population of students including different points in their faith journey, faith tradition, and experiences in faith and leadership backgrounds. There is no one “type” for Retreat Leader so please consider this opportunity as we are seeking dynamics and varied groups of people as leaders. Campus Ministry retreat leaders are committed to creating an open and welcoming space so their peers might have an experience of God.
In order to apply to become a retreat leader for 2013-2014, you must have attended a Campus Ministry retreat in the past. This does include such retreats as the Silent Directed Retreat and the Lenten Retreat in Daily Life along with any of our weekend, off-campus, student-led retreats.
