Peer Ministry

Peer Ministry is an advisory group to the Campus Ministry staff.

Mission Statement

As members of Peer Ministry, we commit and dedicate our efforts as members of the Mount Mercy community in the following ways:

  • We serve our God with all our heart, not only through praise and worship, but also in our service to others 
  • We encourage and enable the spiritual growth of members of the college community by empowering them with the gift of God’s merciful love
  • We are active in our faith
  • We improve our personal relationship with God, as well as offer the support and sponsorship for others to do the same 
  • We discern our own responses to God’s call by recognizing and sharing our talents and the talents of others with the campus community
