Brief Background

The chaplaincy serves as the center for religious and spiritual development and character formation for the entire university community. It provides ministries, services and programmes to students and staff.

Vision
the vision of the chaplaincy unit is to become the center for effective spiritual formation for the university community. 

 

Mission

The mission of the UPSA Chaplaincy is to encourage and enable members of UPSA community to grow spiritually and maximize their potential, by providing meaningful opportunities for worship, fellowship, learning and care. Additionally, the unit is committed to fostering a strong sense of community on campus and an awareness of the need to serve one another.

The chaplaincy seeks to serve the University community by offering care and counselling, support and guidance in matters of faith and spiritual development for all students and staff, both Christians and non-Christians.

 

Our Focus

The focus of the unit is to develop and manage programmes, and provide services that will enhance the university’s mission.


Fellowships 

These provide opportunities for students to come together for a variety of spiritually-enriching programmes. Students can get involved in campus groups that is registered under the chaplaincy unit such as PENSA, ICGC Campus ministry, Methodist campus ministry Presby campus ministry, the Muslim community etc.,

 

Community Worship (Spiritual Formation)

The chaplaincy organizes a day of prayer for Students, Management and staff of the university community. Such intimate meetings are typically characterized by a strong tradition of vibrant worship, intense prayers, and inspirational messages, to mention but a few.

 There is a management day of prayer which take place every Monday at 12:00 noon, and it brings together management and staff of the university for worship.

The University day of prayer takes place as scheduled by management and it brings together staff and student of the university for worship.  Care is taken to ensure that the service is conducted in a way that meets the needs of both Ghanaian and International students.

The unit aims at creating and maintaining an environment which promotes spiritual development and Christian values on the university community.

 

Morning Devotions

Devotional messages are sent to all members of staff through the intranet on daily bases.

The unit also organizes morning devotions for students in their lecture halls before each day’s lectures begin. These devotions are led by student leaders.

 

Chapel Services

Chapel Services is held once a week on campus for prayer, worship and the reflections on the word of God.

Wednesday Morning (9:40 am - 11:40am) and Evening (6:00pm - 7:00pm) 

No matter our level of spiritual maturity, connecting with God is important. Prayer is a unique and vibrant way to experience that connection in our daily lives.

The unit will also organize a program called “Word on Campus”, sharing the word of God by written notices.

 

Other Activities

The chaplaincy unit is responsible for mobilizing financial, material and human resource (students and staff) for short term missions and community service both to deprived communities and institutions such as orphanages, hospitals, schools and prisons.

Every year the unit mobilizes students during the first and second semester breaks for missions to deprived communities. The unit also facilitates groups and individual social service projects to deprived institutions; all religious groups and individual students and staff is supported to mobilize resources cash and kind for donation to orphanages, hospitals, prisons and schools.

The main goal is to inculcate into students the spirit of voluntarism and touching lives.
