Welcome to our Campus Ministries Team.  Our vision is Jesus:  obsessively, dangerously, undeniably Jesus!  It is our privilege to serve you!  We invite you to come and join one of the many ministries available, and to grow in Jesus.

 

 

My beautiful wife, Brandy, and I were happily married just 6 years ago - and I'm fully enrolled in her "how to be a good husband" school system. Much more to learn! In April, we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Scarlett, who along with our 2 year old son, Jax, are the pride and joy of our lives!! As an avid Miami Dolphin fan, I love Sunday afternoons from September through February (that's right, Superbowl bound this year).  Early morning basketball, football, piano, violin, guitar, and hanging out with students--these are just a few of my favorite things. And let us not forget about the fine art of chowing down @ Thai Smile and Lupi's Pizza. As Chaplain, I have the privelege of working with a fantastic ministry team whose entire purpose for existence is to serve you! Welcome to Southern!

 Brennon Kirstein - Chaplain

 

I have been enjoying southeastern Tennessee for more than eight years. It has become one of my favorite places to do some of my favorite things with my wonderful wife, Gennevieve. What I enjoy most about my role in Campus Ministries is the time spent in quality conversations with students at Southern. Jesus Christ is not only my Saviour, but my role model in that regard. Now that I spend so much of my time facilitating the growth of LifeGroups, I enjoy seeing students at Southern immerse themselves in conversations about Jesus. Let’s get together to talk about what Jesus said. God only knows what can happen after that conversation!

 Kevin Kibble - Associate Chaplain

 

 

Four years in “Happy Valley” have truly been happy for me. I am nearly finished with my B.A. in Theology here at Southern. I love many sports, fine art, such as painting and drawing, but most of all I love to spend time with Christ. It is my joy to be used to bless others in any way I can. I also have been blessed to live near Southern’s community and get to know many wonderful people. Some of those people are here in Campus Ministries! We are here to help you experience God in different ways. We especially want to foster a well balanced diet of spiritual food from various areas of ministry including, and most importantly, your personal time with God. If you want to help with a program, participate, or have any questions concerning any spiritual events on campus, please come see me!

 Michael Butler - Assistant Chaplain

 

It seems my earliest memories somehow tied in to wondering what the rest of the world was like. I was able to experience living in other parts of the world when I became a Student Missionary at SAU. My husband and I went to Thailand as SM’s and stayed two years instead of one! This experience ignited a love for missions that has continued to grow through the years. We, my husband and two children, eventually became missionaries in Palau and worked closely with the SM’s. I love working with students who desire to give their time to go and serve. There isn’t anything more rewarding than sending an army of young adults out into the world!

Julie Norton - Student Missions Coordinator

 

 

My life has been unbelievably blessed because I am a third generation missionary’s kid, previous student missionary and short term missions trips coordinator. (The question “Where are you from?” puzzles me most - I mean, to what point of my life are you referring to?)
Sharing Jesus’ love by being his hands and feet to a hurting world is my passion! I am married to my wonderful 6 foot 7inch tall husband, Duane and we have two sons, one of which is a university student here at Southern and the other is an academy student. Southern is the best place in the world and God is about to do amazing things in your life. He has a place for you. Let’s talk about your passion for changing this world with God’s love. Stop by any time! I can’t wait to meet you!

Karen Glassford – Short-Term Missions Coordinator

 

 

One of the best decisions I have ever made was moving to Tennessee. Working with the collegiate age group is an awesome experience. I am now starting my fourth year in the Campus Ministries office and there is always something new for me to learn each and every day. If you want to know more about ministries that are offered and how you can get involved - stop by, I would love to meet you.
