Erin GuzmanWestminster Presbyterian Church, Wooster Ohio, welcomes Erin Guzmán as Student Ministry Coordinator.  In full embrace of Westminster's mission as an "Intentionally Inclusive" church on the campus of The College of Wooster, Erin joins us feeling called to a ministry of social justice and brings with her considerable experience in collegiate ministry. About her call to student ministry Erin says:

"I value the role religious communities can play in students' lives and I think it is critical that denominations invest in young people's spiritual formation, vocational discernment, and leadership development through ministry and worship opportunities."

Erin's appointment as Student Ministry Coordinator comes with an expansion of the position and Westminster's role on the campus of The College of Wooster. Westminster's Student Ministry Coordinator is now an affiliate staff member at The College's Center for Diversity and Inclusion. With this partnership, she will help Westminster live more fully into our role as the Congregation in Residence of The College of Wooster, as she interacts with students on campus and coordinates Westminster co-sponsored activities, like UKirk. Erin is excited about this role and looks forward to developing deeper partnerships between Westminster, The College of Wooster, and the surrounding communities that can support students as they discern their next steps in young adulthood.

Significant to the position will be Erin's involvement with families, children, and youth. Intergenerational interaction is essential to the life of Westminster and is one of the strengths of this generationally diverse congregation. A cornerstone of Erin's approach to ministry is her belief in the value of hospitality and authentic relationships as a basis of faith-rooted justice and communal care.

Erin Guzmán is a graduate of Vanderbilt Divinity School in Nashville, TN. She received her Master of Divinity (M.Div) degree in 2015 and has since spent her time working in direct service nonprofits, faith-based education, and digital communications. Erin spent most of her time in Divinity School, studying various social justice issues and how they connect with pastoral theology and practices of care. While at Vanderbilt, she spent two years working in campus ministry with UKirk Nashville, serving students at Belmont and Vanderbilt Universities and felt a call to pursue this kind of relational ministry.
