Urban Plunge Update – A Message from Jacie Richmond, Pastoral Intern

urban plungeCampus Ministry’s Urban Plunge program has finished off a successful first semester this year! We have been blessed with 5 Urban Plunges this semester! It is such an amazing thing to see youth from the suburbs coming to the city and getting a glimpse of all that there is here (some of them for the first time). You can see them grow and change throughout the weekend becoming stronger in their faith and having a new perspective about how they see people in the world. They truly come to understand that we are all children of God.

Urban Plunge is an overnight retreat program for church youth groups. These groups go around the city to various sites and engage in topics such as homelessness, poverty, race and class through the perspective of Christian faith. Urban Plunge is looking for Augsburg students to serve as group leaders and guides for the spring semester. If you are interested in this then contact Jacie Richmond in Campus Ministry at richmonj@augsburg.edu for more information and an application.

Campus Ministry welcomes Pastoral Intern, Jacie Richmond

jacie_richond_02Augsburg College Campus Ministry is pleased to announce the arrival of our new Pastoral Intern, Jacie Richmond, a third-year M.Div. student at Luther Seminary in St. Paul. Jacie will be splitting her time between Augsburg and Trinity Lutheran Congregation, our partner congregation in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood worshiping in Hoversten Chapel on Sunday mornings.

Jacie adds, “I am originally from Plymouth, MN but I now live not too far from here in St. Paul. When I am not busy working I enjoy reading, writing on my blog, running, interfaith conversations and watching tons of movies. I also love going to hockey, baseball and soccer games when I can. I really look forward to meeting people and getting to know you over the next year!”
