Eureka College ministry fellows will spearhead the college’s interfaith service initiatives. As part of the initiative, Eureka College President J. David Arnold, Chaplain Bruce Fowlkes and senior Judith Guy will be at the White House on Aug. 3 to take part in the start of President Barack Obama’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge. The project encourages institutions of higher education to participate in a year of interfaith and community service programming on campus.
Recipients of Eureka College ministry fellowships will lead the program at Eureka. Among them are Guy of Salina, Kan.; Doug Collins of Albany, Ore.; Colton Lott of Ada, Okla.; Zane Ridings of Salem, Ore.; and Rachel Tapp of Indianapolis. All of them are majoring in religion. They will work with diverse campus groups to implement service projects and partner with students and local religious groups to tackle specific community challenges together.
