Love. Share. Grow. Serve.
Introducing New University Ministry Staff
Sara Kaempf
CCO Associate

Sara is excited to join the University Fellowship as a CCO Associate, as the ministry had a profound impact on her faith during her time as a student at Pitt. Sara recently graduated with a MSW and has just entered the field as a full-time therapist. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, being outdoors, and training her puppy, Koda, to be better than everyone else at the dog park. Her number one priority in life is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and encourage people live in relationship with God. She shares teachings and testimonies on her podcast, titled And That's True, where she teaches what it means to live your life according to the knowledge that God loves you. Sara is grateful for the Lord's work in her life and for all He will do through the lives of the college students and young adults she will serve. 
Joel Hinkle
University Ministry Intern

Hello my name is Joel Hinkle, a recent graduate form the University of Pittsburgh with a Mechanical Engineering degree. I will be working with Bellefield Church, specifically the Campus Ministry Team, and the college ministry that stems from Bellefield called Cornerstone. I am so very excited to step into this position and see what God leads me to do with college students over the next year. I will be focusing a lot of my efforts on the men of Cornerstone and building up a strong community between them. I want to lead studies that will demonstrate how Christian men should present themselves and be set apart from the world according to the Bible. Along with that I will be leading three discipleship groups and am so excited to grow closer with those I am discipling. I look forward to the time I will spend with the staff and students and the relationships that will grow from these interactions.

COVID-19 Guidelines
Over the past two years, our elders and leadership have made it our practice to promote the local CDC guidelines for mitigation strategies. Here are the current recommendations:
  • The CDC COVID-19 Community Level for Allegheny County is currently MED, and people may choose to wear a mask at any time.
  • Those who are sick or may have recent exposure are encouraged to remain at home and participate in our online options when available. 
  • Please be mindful of your interactions with vulnerable populations.
  • We will maintain a fully masked and distanced seated section in the sanctuary for any who choose to sit there.
  • If after attending an onsite event you test positive for COVID, we encourage you to let the group leader know so they can inform those who may be impacted.

Thank you for helping us to care for one another!
