Meet with a Pastor

Maybe you had an interesting class last semester that has made you think more deeply about your faith, and now class is over but you still want to talk about it… Maybe something difficult happened in your life and you want to process it. …Maybe you are making a big decision and you need prayer. …Maybe you need some advice about how to talk with a roommate, friend, or family member. …Or, maybe you just want to get to know your campus pastor better over a cup of coffee.

The campus pastors would love to spend time with you. You can set up a meeting with a campus pastor by sending an email to spirituallife@georgefox.edu or calling 503-554-2320. Let us know if you prefer to meet with the first available campus pastor, or with one of us in particular. All meetings with pastors Jamie Noling-Auth, Rusty St. Cyr, and Jamie Johnson can be confidential. These appointments typically take place in our offices in the Spiritual Life House, but if conversation over coffee is your preference, we can usually be pretty easily persuaded to move the conversation to a local coffee shop.

Pre-engagement and Premarital Counseling

If you are preparing for marriage, and one of you is a George Fox undergraduate student, the campus pastors offer free premarital counseling. Typically, premarital counseling includes 2-6, one hour sessions. We have a number of marriage resources we really like, and often will utilize the Prepare and Enrich assessment and resources. If our schedule is already full at the time you request pre-engagement or premarital counseling, we will refer you to other trusted people and resources to help you get your marriage started off well

Life Groups

Each semester we offer Life Groups—groups that are committed to growing together in faith through Bible study, relationships, and prayer. To learn more, click here.
