Campus ministries

Grow in your faith at Dordt University.


At Dordt, students are encouraged to think, question, and prepare for their calling in God's world. This focus is evident in the classroom and is supported by a variety of campus ministry and outreach programs.

Worship Opportunities

Chapel, Praise and Worship, and student-led small groups are just a few of the ways to participate. Dordt students are also active in the community and around the globe on service projects and volunteer opportunities.

Right Now Media

Dordt students, faculty, staff, and alumni also have access to Right Now Media, an online library of video Bible studies. For access, please email Sam Ashmore.

Pastoral Care

Recognizing the importance of the spiritual aspect of student life, the college provides pastoral counseling for students through the Dean of Chapel, Aaron Baart, and area pastors. Students seek pastoral care for a variety of reasons, ranging from a listening ear to advice on major life decisions. The Director of Campus Ministries & Worship Arts, Jeremy Perigo, Campus Pastor, Sam Ashmore, and Pastoral Care Assistants, Gail Ashmore and Angela Perigo, are available to talk with students.

Dordt Worship Ensembles

Dordt Worship is an innovative collective committed to bringing Christ-centered and Spirit-empowered worship across a breadth of musical styles. The collective fuses together Dordt University students along with many of the university's key worship faculty and staff, including Dr. Jeremy Perigo & Alex Priore. Whether leading for Chapel in the BJ Haan, Praise & Worship next to the Grille, on tour at a local church, or at an international conference. they love to combine diverse liturgical approaches with a mixture of musical tastes and unique instrumentation into a unified corporate encounter with God.

In addition to opportunities to serve our community in worship, students enrolled in Worship Ensembles receive 0.5 credits per semester (WA-18). Though these ensembles are supported by Worship Arts students, our worship ensembles are made up of students from across campus and disciplines.

To audition for a Dordt Worship ensemble, contact the Director of Campus Ministries & Worship Arts, Jeremy Perigo.
