York Campus Ministries
York Campus Ministries, formerly known as Heartland Campus Ministries, opened its doors under the direction of Michael J. Rush on October 1st, 1995, as a financially self-supported ministry to students, faculty, and staff at York College. On January 1, 1999, York College began to oversee the program and to financially provide for the campus minister whose role then shifted specifically to the students at York College. Unfortunately, on April 16, 2002, Mike Rush suffered a severe stroke and lost the ability to serve in this role. When it was determined that Mike would not be capable of returning to the role of campus minister anytime soon, a search began for a new campus minister. In May of 2003, Tim Lewis, an alum of York College and former classmate of Mike’s accepted the position as York College campus minister. Tim officially came on staff with YC on August 1, 2003 after serving 15 years as a youth minister, 12 of those years with the East Point Church of Christ in Wichita, KS.
The Mission of Campus Ministry at York College is to always draw students closer to Jesus Christ by offering opportunities to grow in their faith.
