Seattle Pacific receives $125k gift toward spiritual formation

Seattle Pacific University received an anonymous gift of $125,000 from two alumni to expand the University’s student ministry outreach program. The gift will be directed to the student ministry coordinator and residence hall ministry coordinator programs, as well as provide additional resources for campus Chapel offerings.

This generous gift will enable the hiring and training of additional student leaders to serve in their respective residence halls, providing peer-to-peer Bible studies, prayer, and general spiritual support. A portion of the gift will also assist in covering costs associated for bringing in dynamic speakers to enhance the worship experience at Chapel services. All funds will be applied to the 2023-24 academic year for immediate impact.

“I am so grateful for the lasting ways this generous gift will enhance our campus ministry programs and support the spiritual life of our students,” said President Deana Porterfield. “Seattle Pacific University is committed to providing a Christian community where students can explore and strengthen their faith, and this gift is an affirmation that we have partners ready to help advance this important work.”
