Huddle and Go!
We are excited about a new opportunity called Huddle and Go. We will be hosting a once-a-month virtual gathering for higher education ministry professionals to connect, persevere, and strive toward. Created in partnership with Campus Ministry Matters and facilitated by former NCMA president J. Cody Nielsen (Wesley Foundation, University of Minnesota) and NCMA Bethany Initiative participant Ben Wideman (3rd Way Collective, Penn State University), the Huddle and Go offers monthly video conference discussions on topics you’ll find vitally interesting—from contemporary challenges on campus to ongoing operational concerns around staffing, funding, and running a campus ministry program.
The series is offered free of charge to all NCMA Members; non-members will pay $20.00 per session.

In 2014, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of NCMA by returning to St. Louis, the site of our first conference in 1964. To mark the occasion, 55 of our “Sages” collected their campus ministry stories in a book edited by Betsy Alden entitled, Campus Ministry Memoirs: The Way It Way, 1964-2014. Collectively, they have served over 1500 years in the work of campus ministry in North America and their stories are valuable for anyone wanting to learn more about campus ministry.
