Covenanter Named Bethel Dean of Campus Ministries

ST. PAUL, MN (July 24, 2008) – Laurel Bunker, a member of Compass Covenant Church, has been named the new dean of campus ministries for Bethel University’s College of Arts & Sciences.

Bunker will assume her new duties in early August. She currently is the director of program operations for the Jeremiah Program in the Twin Cities. The program provides housing and services to single mothers and their children.

“The most significant implication of my faith commitment is that I am called and required to stand for the cause of Christ, lovingly yet boldly in a time when many are espousing other faith systems, which when mixed with lukewarm Christianity creates confusion and the unraveling of the church,” Bunker says. “I recognize that the god of this age has blinded many and has lulled many to sleep. I recognize that many of our young people – and some not so young – have been introduced to Christ in a postmodern fashion that does not teach the reality of the cross, the need for repentance, a dependence on the Holy Spirit rather than the self, and the hope of eternal life.”

Compass Covenant is an urban, multi-ethnic church plant on the east side of St. Paul.
