About My Church Plant

Syracuse University enrolls 22,000 students from around the world. Many students have been hurt by their church experience, have missed what the Christian faith is truly about, or have never heard the gospel (Matthew 9:36). Devon and Kate empower students to be the church wherever they go. They teach students how to share about the kingdom motivation and demonstrate Jesus' gospel message.

"[We] will tell a future generation the praiseworthy acts of the Lord, his might, and the wondrous works he has performed" (Psalm 78:4).

Kate oversees student programming for Christian outreach, the service and outreach component of student ministry. Devon is the Baptist chaplain for Syracuse University and the pastor of Campus Church. In addition, he serves as the interim state collegiate director for the Baptist Convention of New York.
