The Faith & Formation Ambassador (FFA) program is an opportunity for the emerging student leader who desires to grow in faith while serving the University of Portland community. FFAs find the space, structure, and guidance to grow actively and critically in faith, build community within a particular residence hall, and serve others.
Responsibilities of the Faith & Formation Ambassador include:
Presence in and support of the residence hall and collaboration with other student leaders in the hall
Engagement in personal faith through prayer, faith-sharing, and regular meetings with a spiritual companion in the UP community
Participation in a weekly 1-credit, upper division theology seminar class designed to help students reflect on their leadership experiences
Monthly prayer and social time with adults with intellectual disabilities through the Religious Experience with eXceptional People (REX) program
Attendance on a weekend retreat for reflection on the FFA experience
The Faith & Formation Ambassador program is a collaboration of the Office of Residence Life, the Moreau Center, Campus Ministry, and the Department of Theology. Each FFA receives direct supervision from a residence life senior staff member who creates the detailed responsibilities that best fit the hall.
Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year will be available at the beginning of the Spring 2017 semester.
