The Campus Community


Whoever you are and wherever you are
on your journey of faith,
we welcome you.

The Church of the Good Shepherd is one of three Ohio Episcopal parishes that were built to serve a campus.   The Church's music program is among the best in the diocese, and engages professors and students with townspeople on a weekly basis.   Through it's different outreach ministries, the parish strives to meet immediate needs, to remove the root causes of injustice, to encourage forms of community that transcend divisions in our society, and to strenghten fellowship and spirititual growth.   We invite your ideas and participation.

Check out our thrift shop located across from the concrete food-truck pad area. It is open during office hours, 10:00 - 3:00, Monday - Thursday.

Why Campus Ministry

We are compelled to engage on our campuses
Sharing the gospel, a good news that is inviting and welcoming
Seeking to be rewired
To create a home for students seeking a path to God
Compelled by the Holy Spirit to listen and learn
And unlearn
Telling the stories about what we are learning from the campus
Discovering who is our neighbor
Opening out and walking alongside
It is who I am
My heart is called to relationship
Creating a place of empathy, safety, and connection
Noticing ways we experiment with the scripts we carry
Being present for the Spirit is moving
