Dr. Katelyn Hargrave

Spiritual Life Coordinator
Office Manager – Student Life

I serve as the Spiritual Life Coordinator for Campus Ministry, as well as doing some general Student Life office management tasks.

As the Spiritual Life Coordinator I work to provide opportunities for our students to engage in spiritual formation opportunities through various events and programs that prompt them to reflect well and form deeper connection with God, self, and others. This is done through spiritual formation practices, worship, Bible studies, service opportunities, and more. I also work with our Campus Ministry student leaders to mentor them as they partner to lead our campus community.

As the Office Manager in Student Life, I help keep our office organized and assist with making sure our campus communication effectively shares information that is pertinent to our student body and campus community. I also handle items like student IDs, parking permits, campus postings, student life social media, and other day-to-day tasks of the Center for Student Life.

I earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Christian Ministry and my Master’s of Religious Education in Missional Leadership here at Rochester Christian University (though it was Rochester College at the time), and I earned my Doctor of Ministry from Lipscomb University.

When I’m not working in Student Life you may find me adjunct teaching in RU’s Theology and Ministry Department, running on the Clinton River Trail, taking my dogs (Sammy and Finn) for a walk, or playing board games or watching TV with my husband. If you see me around campus, feel free to say hi! I’m always up for meeting new people!
