Welcome! The Common Ministry, an integral part of the Washington State University community, recently moved out of the building we’ve occupied for nearly 50 years. Although we are no longer located in The Interfaith House (previously called the Koinonia House), we will continue to provide opportunities for students, staff, and community members to grow and build bridges of understanding among people of a variety of faith traditions.
The Common Ministry of Pullman seeks to provide “Safe space for spiritual development” for students, staff, and faculty of WSU. We seek to create a safe space for diverse religious opinion by increasing respect and mutual understanding among people of different faith, ethnic, and cultural traditions and by fostering cooperation among religious communities and civic organizations.
For at least the upcoming year of 2014/15, our office will be located at 525 NE Campus Street (Community Congregational United Church of Christ). Stay tuned for news about locations for programming in the coming year.
Welcoming Our New Director!
We are excited to welcome Rev. Jessica Stokes as the new Director of The Common Ministry! Rev. Stokes completed her Master of Divinity degree at Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC, and is an ordained Baptist Minister. Her background includes extensive experience working with college students of different faiths and cultures in non-profit and academic settings, in hospitals, and in congregational life. In addition, she participated in study-abroad programs in India (comparative theology of Christian-Hindu dialogue) and in Israel and Egypt (Judaism and Islam), and completed a hospital chaplaincy residency at New Hanover Regional Medical Center, Wilmington, NC. Rev. Stokes begins September 1st.
The Common Ministry has served the Washington State University community for 49 years. It is an open and accepting organization that provides a safe place for students, staff, and faculty to explore their own faith as well as to build bridges with people of other faith traditions. Programs and discussions promote a ministry of spiritual discovery and growth that makes a difference in one’s own life and in the lives of others.
