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. Click here to order a copy for yourself. Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit the National Campus Ministry Association.
