Ministry: Maryville University BSU
Mission Statement:
To grow together in Christ and to reach the campus of Maryville University for Christ.
Tell us about your journey to becoming a Campus Missionary:
Teresa was a student starting in the fall of 1997. She became involved in BSU right away. When she graduated in December 2001 she felt led to continue with BSU and Tim decided to partner with her. It has been a joy ever since.
What do you love about doing ministry on your campus?
We love our students. They mean the world to us and they bring us joy every day.

Tell us about yourself and your family:
We have one son Thomas who is 11 years old. Tim and Thomas are both in Tae Kwon Do and have their brown belts. We love to spend time as a family watching movies, going fishing and have recently went to Disney World on vacation.
What do you hope to see happen on your campus/within your ministry in the next few years?
We are always striving to reach Maryville for Christ. We would love to partner with other Christian groups on campus to have a bigger impact and collaboration on the campus.
What are some of the things your ministry does?
Some things we do are a pancake dinner, prayer walk and try to attend a conference every semester. We also have an ice cream social during UWOW (University Week of Welcome) every year.
