Oasis of Faith Campus Ministries History:
Oasis of Faith Campus Ministries at UMass Boston continues to serve the community. It began in 1974 with the skills of Sister Sarah Small, formerly of Twelfth Baptist Church and the Rev. Jack Hornfeldt.
The Chaplain works as a messenger of the Good News, to give pastoral care, to encourage the use of students’ gifts and skills to create a more just society towards The Beloved Community, to provide the agape’ of Jesus and to be an ambassador of faith. While we primarily serve students, we also care for the whole community as able, and serve staff and faculty as well.
It continues as a grant and donation funded ministry. The university offers the in-kind gift of an office, internet service, and a welcome at the leadership table.
The hired paid volunteer will be an independent self-employed minister, paid monthly and will receive a 1099 for taxes.
The hired paid volunteer will report each month with a written report to the board on activities and data of encounters.
