Blue & Gold 101 Doyen

Blue & Gold 101 Doyen play a vital role in the lives of new freshman.  They lead a small group of 10 or so freshmen each week to discuss and explore topics that are pertinent to new students in transition. They also have the opportunity to build community for the freshmen and to answer questions about Mississippi College life.

Christian Life Coordinators (CLC)

CLCs are individuals who have a heart for God and a desire to walk life with other people of the Mississippi College family. CLCs are not “perfect Christians.” Instead, they are students who have a mature and growing relationship with Jesus and who want to be used in the lives of fellow students. This ministry is about building relationships and doing life together. Each Christian Life Coordinator will serve on a team that will be assigned to a specific residence hall. Your ministry as a CLC would likely include hanging out with men/women in your hall, getting involved with their residence hall activities, grabbing coffee or lunch, worshipping together, serving together and potentially leading a small group in the hall. Honestly, there is no “one-size-fits-all” for this ministry. Whatever the CLC is willing to give will directly connect to what he or she gets out of the experience.

  • Serve students alongside the Office of Christian Development (campus ministries and local churches) and the residential staff, through being a personal example, encourager, and disciple maker.

  • Lead the residence hall to participate in at least one service project and two events a semester.
  • Assist the Department of Christian Development with campus-wide initiatives.
  • Creatively promote events and programs for campus ministries and churches.
