Campus Ministries

PURPOSE

The Campus Ministry Association (CMA) at The University of Alabama exists in order to coordinate and to represent those major faiths and denominations which provide ministry to the university community. The CMA is both an ecumenical and interfaith association. The CMA understands itself to be a part of the university community; and aims to serve it by fulfilling pastoral and prophetic functions. The CMA is a voluntary association. Although we seek to work closely with The University we have no official standing with the University. All of our student ministries are officially registered groups under the Office of Student Involvement. The CMA is not a registered group as a whole.  We do have a strong and long term relationship of cooperation and mutual commitment to shared mission with the University. We invite the University to call on us when we can be of service. We call upon the University when we see areas where we can share input and work together on programs and activities that serve everyone.  The CMA attempts to aid the University in the pursuit of truth, the development of whole persons, and the promotion of peace, justice, and social responsibility. The CMA does not view the University as a setting for faith/denominational competition, but as a field for collaborative ministry. The CMA views its activities as opportunities for pastoral care rather than faith/denominational proselytism. The CMA does not attempt to restrict the activities of its members, but only to give direction to those activities designated by the University and the CMA as common ministries. At times when members feel it is important to express our view on an issue of social responsibility, the CMA should be unanimous in its agreement before that view is presented as the view of the CMA. Lacking such unanimity, individual members are free to express their view for their faith/denomination group.
