Acts Campus Ministry
at The University of Illinois Urbana Champaign
The Hospitality Ministry provides hospitality services to visitors and members on a weekly basis, and helps facilitate the hospitality table and offertory at worship services with an inviting atmosphere and an attitude of love and care. We also answer people’s questions, have an up-to-date list of church resources and activities to inform people of and help them find what they are looking for from worship services, Bible Studies, pastoral help and various ministries available through ACTS Campus Ministry. This role may also include conducting follow-up for visitors with emails, notes, calls, visits, and interfacing with pastors and ministry staff for ministry and personal needs for both members and visitors. With this role, we will be able to strengthen the connections and fellowship between congregation members to stimulate both spiritual growth and social interaction through various congregational connections and events for the purpose of building relationships and sharing Jesus.
