Volunteer Service & Community Outreach

Throughout the year, the Office of Campus Ministry strives to identify and address the needs of our campus community, as well as those of Lakewood and beyond. Partnering with churches, pastors, and organizations such as Providence House, Interfaith Hospitality, and Catholic Charities, we seek to live our Mercy core values.

Service Trips

Campus ministry plans multiple service trips throughout the year. Some are local trips lasting a few hours or a day. Others are weeklong domestic or international trips during breaks. These trips include opportunities for prayer and reflection with an emphasis on living our Mercy charism.

Backpack & School Supply Drive (Early September)

Each fall, the GCU community collects school supplies to donate to local children so they are well supplied for a new school year.  Watch for flyers and e-mails for details.

Thanksgiving Basket Drive (November)

Campus ministry organizes this on-campus food drive to provide baskets containing complete holiday dinners to be delivered to grateful families. Volunteers are needed to collect donations and organize baskets and food.

Giving Tree Project (early December)

As Christmas approaches, campus ministry sets up giving trees around campus. These trees carry gift tags naming items needed or desired by those who are unable to buy gifts for their families. Students, faculty, and staff choose items from a tree, purchase them, and return them to campus ministry by the due date. Volunteers are needed to set up trees, collect donations, and organize gifts.

Easter Basket Drive

Campus ministry collects candy, toys, and Easter baskets to spread the sweet joy of Easter to area kids. Volunteers are needed to fill and wrap baskets.
