Mission Statement

Johns Hopkins University Campus Ministries promotes and supports spiritual development, theological reflections, religious tolerance and social awareness among students, faculty and staff within the university community. At its heart, Campus Ministries is a prophetic and pastoral presence which seeks to enhance the spiritual and ethical educational experience of the whole person mind, body and soul.

 
Welcome to Campus Ministries!
At its very best, a university community is a place of academic and cosmic discovery where time is spent in worthy and imposing intellectual pursuits. It is also true that such a community can foster deep spiritual exploration, growth and engagement. For many it marks the beginning of an awesome search for ultimate meaning. This may take form either in fellowship with others, or individually, in prayerful contemplation. It is more than likely to be a little of both. In whatever way this time is embodied, it is part of an extraordinary lifelong journey. Johns Hopkins University Campus Ministries humbly endeavors to be a nurturing source of light along the way as this search unfolds. 

Chaplains and Campus Ministers have a unique role in a campus community. We seek to be both spiritual supporters and active participants in the life of the university. It is not uncommon that one might encounter a chaplain or a campus minister at a religious service. However, it is also just as likely that one might run into us at a lecture, an athletic event or just hanging out on campus. In the midst of the temporal, we aspire to bear witness to the sacred. We are open-minded, open-hearted and thoroughly committed to your religious and spiritual well-being. In times of joy and of sorrow we are dedicated to being a caring, gentle, accessible presence to all students, faculty and staff. We consider ourselves quite blessed to be part of a community of scholars, seekers and believers walking together on a remarkable journey of spiritual awakening and human flourishing.

The Seven Branch Candelabra was commanded by G-d to be placed in the Tabernacle and then was placed in the Holy Temples.  It is displayed on the bright blue background.  In Jewish holy writ, it states that the candle represents the good deed or mitzvah while the flame represents wisdom (Torah Knowledge).  The menorah is an everlasting symbol that we can only serve the Al-mighty if we internalize the wisdom of the ages and this should lead to good deeds that are done spontaneously and wisely rather than mechanically and by rote.
