Student Leadership Team and Small Group Leader Discernment

discernment (v):

         1. process of deep prayer and reflection on a given situation or decision to be made

         2. the search to distinguish our will from the will of God and to humbly follow Him

CCM uses a process called "discernment" to establish its student leadership teams and small group leaders for the upcoming academic year. Hampden-Sydney College and Longwood University have separate leadership teams with four positions each: President, Faith Formation, Service, and Fellowship.


There is one Communications Chair for the ministry as a whole, which can be held by a student from either campus.

Each position has a unique role and set of responsibilities to support Catholic Campus Ministry on its respective campus. Click the buttons below to view each position description or to apply for a position.

All students who are discerned into a leadership position (including small group leaders) will also be expected to sign the CCM Leadership Personal Commitment Form, a copy of which can be found below.
