A student’s time at university can be a great chance to grow in faith. Often this growth comes through challenges and questions as students make decisions about what they believe and how they choose to live. This can be difficult, but you don’t have to do it alone! We want to provide as many opportunities as possible for students to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Tim Wood is King's campus minister and works with students to grow and mature as Christians. Tim Wood is an ordained minister and member of the Christian Reformed Church and has experience working with students of all denominational and faith backgrounds.
There are a variety of ways to get involved. Consider joining a small group. Attend the annual Silent Retreat to King’s Fold Retreat Centre. Participate in an interfaith dialogue. Take your professor out for coffee and ask about his or her faith journey. Go to Worship 857. Help plan chapel with the Worship Formation Team. Join the Prison Ministry Team. Come and pray with others on campus.

Spiritual Mentor and Life Coaches
King's has two spiritual mentor and life coaches, Bob Foo and Val Martens, who are available to walk alongside and pray with students.
Bob desires to support the young men at King’s in life skills (e.g. time management, study skills), spiritual mentoring (where faith intersects life), and intentional discipleship training through one-on-one meetings and Bible study.
Val loves hearing students' stories and bringing hope and understanding when life is difficult. She serves the young women at King's.
