About us

Tent-Mark-Navy.png

Dwell Campus Ministry is a ministry of Ambassadors for Christ (A4C) which is a registered student organization on the University of Arizona campus. Our affiliation allows us the opportunity to hold events on campus for students. We also have membership on the University Religious Council, a group which aims to ensure the safety of students when engaging with religious groups on campus. Dwell Campus Ministry and A4C welcome all students to be members of our organization, regardless of their religious beliefs.

A4C is funded and overseen by the Arizona Campus Missions Foundation (ACMF), which is supported by alumni and friends of the ministry across the nation. Our mission aims to reach students attending the University of Arizona and Pima Community College.

Dwell is a group defined by the love of God and we are devoted to sharing it with others. We hope that students will feel at home with us, be challenged for good by us, grow in faith with us, question with us, share hope with us, care for others with us and love Jesus more with us.

Amy Kendall

Campus Minister

Amy recently left the snow and mountains of Boulder, CO to experience life in the desert and all it has to offer. She started her vocation in ministry as a missionary in Moscow, Russia, then served as a Children's Minister in Northern CA when she returned to the US. After completing graduate school at Fuller Seminary, Amy went on to write language books and resources for adoptive families, served as a New Testament Adjunct Professor at Colorado Christian University and led a Campus Ministry at CU Boulder called Climb. She has an incredible husband and three almost-grown children who are her pride and joy. Amy loves Bible discussions, any kind of travel, home renovation shows, and (when pressed) will admit that she knows way too much pop culture news. Sitting and talking with college students over a cup of coffee might just be Amy's favorite sport though, so don't hesitate to reach out to her!
