Britney was raised in a Christian immigrant household from Ghana. Both her parents were Christians and mostly everyone around her was too. When she was 11, she wanted to give her life to Christ, but didn’t really know who Jesus was. She mainly did it because her friends were doing it. After many years without knowing God she began to do a little bit of research on it, but then COVID hit and she felt hopeless. During this time, she felt God calling out to her and she continued her research and finally gave her life to Christ.
After joining Campus One80 as a student in the fall of 2021, she quickly became very active and joined the leadership. She hopes to deepen her relationship with God and to help other students do the same.

Sarah accepted Christ at a young age and grew up in the church, attending private Christian schools all her life. In her own words, she lived in a safe, Christian bubble and didn’t talk with many people outside of church and school. After graduating high school, Sarah started attending Monroe Community College and expected to just go through her day there doing what she needed to do without having to interact with the different people around her. This changed, however, when she was introduced to Campus One80. She immediately began attending anything her schedule would allow, and the more involved she became, the more she came to love everything about the ministry.
Sarah has been pushed in many ways to grow not only in her faith, but also her character through her time in Campus One80. Before joining the ministry, she was a reserved person who wanted to keep to herself. The longer she has been with the ministry, however, the more she has had to step out and talk with new students that she would likely never have interacted with in the past in order to develop relationships with them and share her faith.
Sarah began interning with Campus One80 in the fall of 2018 and has moved to an affiliate role as she pursues her career. She is excited to serve in whatever capacity that is needed!
Jacob was born and raised in a Christian home with faithful parents who love the Lord. He was saved at the young age of 8. Throughout the years, Jacob always wanted to be a leader–from helping direct VBS and Wednesday night programs to leading worship on Sunday mornings at Yates Baptist Church.
Jacob has always had the gift of singing and it was not till Campus One80 that he realized the impact leading worship could have on people's lives, especially college kids. Jacob truly believes that music fills the spaces that words cannot, and that it is a gateway to allow the Spirit to restore us and an opportunity to worship our Heavenly Father.
Jacob has been a part of MCC Campus One80 for three semesters, two of which he was the worship leader and is looking to plant a Campus One80 at RIT which he will be attending in the fall of 2023. He looks forward to seeing how God will use him to show more of his glory to the students and faculty at RIT.

Caleb grew up in a Christian home attending church services every Sunday. Though this was the case, he never cared for church and paid no attention to the services. Then, in his junior year of high school, he attended a Younglife camp at Lake Champion. There, he heard the true Gospel for the first time and began questioning if there was something to it.
Over the next year, he tried to change and overcome his hidden, sinful lifestyle by his own strength, with no success. Then, in his senior year, he truly heard the Gospel at camp, and his heart was changed. On the last day of camp, he stood up before the crowd declaring “My name is Caleb Fisher and I gave my life to Christ this week.”
Since then, he has been growing in his faith and knowledge of God in the Scriptures. He attends a church in Brockport, NY, where he has served in ministries at all levels. He has helped teach the young students during Sunday morning service, older students on Sunday evenings, and college students in Bible studies on Friday nights.
Through these service opportunities, he discovered his heart for college ministry and walking with these students in life. He began in Campus One80, seeing it as an opportunity to serve in this way. For this reason, he has set aside schooling for physical therapy to make this ministry his life’s work.
He now resides with his wife, Haley, in Brockport, NY, as he ministers on SUNY Brockport campus. As a part of the only Christian ministry on this campus, he seeks to meet as many students as he can, share the Gospel with them, and disciple them in a life-giving relationship with Jesus Christ.

Melissa lives in Rochester, NY, with her husband Steven and their five pets.
Miranda has served as a campus minister, first under Campus Ambassadors and now with Campus One80 since 2011. She began as a student intern and directed a student house near the college. She currently directs the ministry at The College at Brockport, where she was involved as a student.

She completed her Bachelor's in Social Work and is currently working on a seminary degree with a focus in Transformational Leadership, which will aid in creating similar family communities on campus to help college students through the trials life can bring.
Miranda and Walter were married on August 5, 2017, and are excited about what God has for them. Walter sees the importance of Miranda’s ministry and encourages her commitment, seeing college students enter into a relationship with Christ.

At a very young age, Jaylyn grew up with the concept of God in her home. She began attending church with her family at the age of 8, where she really began to hear the Gospel. At the age 13, she committed her life to Christ. By 19-years-old, she began serving in her youth ministry at her church, which helped provide clarity in what God wanted her to do. She began college soon after and began looking for ways to serve on her campus. Jaylyn became involved in Campus One80 at Monroe Community College after attending their weekly Bible study. She was able to get a feel of what the ministry was about and felt led to begin serving on their leadership team there in various ways.

Daniel began serving in April 2016 at Monroe Community College (MCC) in Rochester, New York. He felt a burden for the students on the campus as soon as he walked into the doors of MCC. He was volunteered by his older brother to be a student leader the very first day Daniel attended the local campus ministry meeting, and he has not turned back since.
Daniel was saved at a young age and has attended church his whole life, but he became complacent. In middle and high school, he “wore masks” to try to get by as easily as possible. While attending the campus ministry, however, he faced the reality that this was not the way God designed him to live, and that it was destructive to himself and to others. Today, he seeks to serve Christ and others and wishes to share his story and his faith with everyone on campus and see them experience Christ in the same way he did.
Daniel has a rich family heritage of serving in ministry, including his parents and grandparents, who helped to plant churches when he was younger, and his brother, who is currently heavily involved with a church ministering in the city of Rochester. His family continues to support his faith journey in becoming closer to Christ and more like Him.
“God’s plan will come to fruition no matter what happens. That includes if I want to be a part of it or not, so it is up to me to decide if I want to be an active participant in His plan.” Daniel believes that God’s plans are superior to his own and chooses to follow them.
Andrew serves as an intern with Campus One80 at SUNY Brockport in New York. While there, he has been actively involved as both a student participant and leader. His involvement with Campus One80 has led him to more leadership opportunities in the community and he now oversees the Outreach Table on Tuesdays, and leads a small group and a Bible study. Andrew’s ministry focus as an intern is to dedicate more time to discipling other students and furthering campus outreach.
Andrew was brought up in a home that believed in God but wasn’t active in faith. Andrew had a knowledge of God, but didn’t really know God until he went to college. During his freshman year, his grandparents challenged him with the possibility that Christ could save him and Andrew took a step out in faith during an alter call at his grandparents’ church. After this step of faith, he encountered spiritual warfare and struggled in his faith for two years. He attended two different men’s Bible studies in an attempt to maintain a walk with the Lord, but still felt pulled towards worldly things. In 2014, at a student leadership training conference, Andrew recommitted his life to fully walk with the Lord. Two months later, Andrew made a public declaration of faith in Christ and was baptized. Since then, Andrew’s faith has grown and he has become a leader at Campus Campus One80, and leads Bible studies, small groups, and outreach tables.
Andrew is the oldest of three and has a younger brother and sister and has a heart to bring his family closer to the Lord. He has been blessed by his grandparent’s spiritual influence in his walk with the Lord, having one grandfather who was an administrative pastor at Lakeshore Community Church in Rochester. Andrew has completed a bachelor degree in Business Administration at SUNY Brockport.
Once Kayla Matthews realized the truth and love of Jesus Christ, she wanted to spread it to everyone. She found the greatest need was in the hearts of young adults and was delighted to discover that Campus One80 existed to meet this need. After her first year at the Monroe Community College campus, she experienced God’s love through the ministry and felt God calling her to become an intern to help future students have the same experience.
Her favorite part in ministry is being able to address real struggles that students go through by using the truth of God’s word and be a living example of it. Being able to share practical ways with students on how to overcome temptations of this world, strengthen their personal relationships with God, or to see Him in their everyday lives gets her excited to plan bible studies or retreats for them. She enjoys not only helping them learn from the Lord, but to grow in her life along with them.
Raised in a Christ-based home, Kayla was brought up to know His love. However, it was not until high school that she became fully aware of His love for her and she personally accepted Jesus Christ into her life. Although, after this decision, her relationship with him that did not seem to grow much until she went to college. During a campus ministry retreat worship service, Kayla experienced God in a way that she never had before, and His presence hasn’t left her life since. She plans to grow, serve, and live the rest of her life for Christ.
Steve has an enthusiasm for mentoring and making disciples of Christ among young adults and enjoys teaching and small group ministry. His college years (1977-81) included time in fellowship with a ministry group on the SUNY Brockport campus, which influenced a calling to teaching and mentoring with young adults in his church.

When he was introduced to a youth group ministry at a local church, he was welcomed warmly by two youth leaders. They shared their friendship and the Gospel with him. It was at youth group that Michael saw how amazing it was that Jesus forgives sins, and he wanted to be part of that.
After personally experiencing how ministry can change lives, he wanted to be in the ministry. After going to Houghton College to get a BA in Education Ministries/Bible and after two youth director jobs in the church, he joined campus ministry.

Daniel has been in college ministry since 2013. Between the both of them, he and his wife, Stephanie, have worked at three different campuses together and currently direct ministry at Linn-Benton Community College. Daniel has been a Christian his whole life and has wanted to be a missionary since he was
eight. When he was 13 he began trying to challenge himself and other believers to understand Scripture better.
Upon meeting Stephanie who had been involved with campus ministry for a couple months, Daniel started raising support in Georgia before taking a leap of faith and moving to Oregon with what he could fit in a two door Chevy Cobalt. Having seen first hand how many of his friends stopped attending church and how faith tends to take a back seat for many after graduating high school.
Daniel has since felt a strong call to build communities that young adults want to be part of, where they meet Jesus and invite others along for the journey. He is passionate about reaching out to the increasing number of young adults who have no natural communities or support systems in their lives, and helping them get connected to a place where they are loved and can develop skills that will help them for the rest of their lives. Since getting married in 2015, Daniel and Stephanie have had three boys. Both of them seek to work together to set an example for believers and use their talents to show Christ’s love further God’s Kingdom.
Stephanie has worked in college ministry since 2013. She was recruited at Chemeketa Community College with Campus Ambassadors and interned there, Oregon State University, and Linn-Benton Community College (LBCC). Which is where she and her husband Daniel direct the ministry.
She first had a desire to be a missionary when she was five years old. She thought initially that would be Africa, but God had other plans. She went to Chemeketa Community College and connected with a college minister her second year. They had a conversation about joining the group and she was hesitant, due to being committed to serving in other areas of the community. She ended up meeting with him and knew that God wanted her to take part of the mission to the campus. She then was offered an internship at OSU and knew that God was changing her direction. After a year she had a longing to go back and serve at a Community College. She and her soon-to-be husband were placed at LBCC to direct the ministry. She and Daniel have three beautiful boys. They both love working together and try to live out the Gospel in their marriage, family, and individual lives to set an example for the students in hopes that some may want to make Jesus Lord of their lives.
Marleese began serving as a campus ministry intern in June 2017 at Monroe Community College in Rochester, New York. She transferred to SUNY Brockport in August 2018 and graduated in 2020. She has now returned to Monroe Community College, where she leads a team to plan events, build community, and mentor individual students to help them grow closer to Jesus. She also enjoys using media to help many more people discover Campus One80.
Marleese was born to Christian parents. She grew up hearing the gospel and was heavily involved in the church. Having always believed in Jesus, she decided at age 14 to commit her life to Him.
When she began college, Marleese first got involved with campus ministry somewhat reluctantly, but she quickly found that she loved the community it provided. Throughout her teenage years, she felt God was calling her to be a missionary. It wasn’t until her second year of college, with the help of a friend, that she realized the mission God was currently calling her to was right in front of her on local college campuses. Throughout college, she constantly wished she had more time to devote to ministry, so after graduation it seemed like going into full-time ministry was the natural thing for her to do.
Marleese lives in Rochester with two roommates and an excessive number of houseplants. She finds community among her roommates, her coworkers, and her church family.
Amber accepted Christ into her life as a young child. Her grandparents brought her regularly to Hilton Baptist Church in Rochester, NY, where they attended faithfully for years. Throughout her life she has learned to put her trust in the Lord and fully rely on him in difficult times. Amber currently serves as the youth group leader at her church and sings in the choir.
After graduating high school, Amber decided that she would attend a college close to home and started at SUNY Brockport, where she studied nursing with a minor in music.
While trying to adjust to a new schedule, a new setting, and new friends, she discovered a Christian club on campus. She started becoming more involved within Campus One80 by attending service projects, mission trips, and just spending more time with the Lord. It was within this time that Amber found that she had a passion for college students and decided to intern with Campus One80. She continues to volunteer with the ministry now that she has graduated from college and is serving as a nurse in the Rochester community.
Growing close to God through meaningful relationships and service opportunities as a teenager inspired Jeff Pilger to begin exploring a life of ministry. Volunteering with Children’s ministries and leading school bible studies were a few things that would eventually lead him to the mission’s field where he first felt the call to ministry.
Jeff served as the pastor of student ministries at Journey Christian Church for 10 years. His focus on relationships and discipleship connected him with students, their families and other local church leaders. He now serves as the youth director at Faith Church in Bellefonte PA, and is planting a Campus One80 club on a campus in PA.
Jeff’s heart for people is for spiritual, familial and emotional health, through a dynamic and vibrant relationship with God. In joining the Campus One80 team at Monroe Community College, Jeff is excited to build relationships, share the gospel and disciple new believers and this generation of new church leaders.
Jeff was raised to know Jesus by his Christian Father who brought him to church faithfully as a boy. A Christian work camp led to great Christian friendships, a love for serving people and a heart for ministry.
“I came here to study the Bible, not meet attractive women,” was Jeff’s first thought of his future wife, Asia in 2001. After dating long distance while Jeff attended Bible college, they were married in January of 2005. About 10 months later their daughter Allison was born. Their son, Liam, was born in 2010. Being a young family on a budget, Jeff and Asia prayerfully planned on not having any other children. God, though had much different ideas for them and in 2018, Lauren was born.
Jeff has a B.S. in church ministries with an emphasis on youth from Cairn University in Philadelphia, PA.
He has furthered his ministry education through Jeanne Mayo’s Cadre, a youth leader coaching ministry.
Nate grew up in a Christian household, with his parents being active in the church. When he was 15 the church that he was going to closed. Within a year of no longer attending church he began to go down the wrong path. By the time he was 18 he wasn’t living a Christian lifestyle anymore, and had fallen into the ways of the world. As a result of this he went through years of suffering, hardship, and being spiritually lost.
In the spring of 2019 he decided to buy a study Bible, because he thought it would help him answer questions that he had about Christianity. It helped him answer some of his questions, but still left him with others. That fall while attending Quinsigamond Community College he saw a flyer for a Bible Study with Campus One80. He thought it would be a good way to have his questions answered, so he started going to the studies.
Over time he went from a sceptic who had questions, to a believer who was now answering other student’s questions. Nate was baptized in July 2021 and started his internship with Campus One80 in June 2022. He is directing the ministry at Worcester State University and assisting the ministry at Quinsigamond Community College and Nichols College.
Brianna grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ at a young age. Brianna reflects that God has walked through every season of her life with her, the highest highs and the lowest lows. He has been her source of strength, peace, and wisdom through it all. So much so that she can’t imagine having to walk through this life without the knowledge of God by her side, and the assurance that comes from that. Brianna has a strong desire for every person to know that God loves them and is with them always. She considers every opportunity to share God’s love and the truth of the Gospel a precious gift. Therefore, in 2022 she applied to serve alongside her husband, Joshua Roselund, to minister together at Roberts Wesleyan University. Their goal is for every student to come to know God and develop a life-long relationship with him.
Brianna enjoys serving, teaching, organizing and planning events, leading students in small group settings, and just loving students. She is excited to continue doing these things as well as opening her home to college students and supporting them in a critical season of life. She and her husband get to show students God’s love in practical ways and teach them the truth of the Gospel. It is her hope that her marriage, and parenting, will also be an encouragement and role model for students.
Brianna has a B.S. in Childhood Education and TESOL Education (K-12) from Roberts Wesleyan University, as well as a M.Ed. in Higher Education and Educational Leadership from Liberty University. In addition to volunteering with Campus One80, she currently teaches English as a New Language full time at Greece Arcadia Middle School and is an adjunct professor for Roberts Wesleyan University.
Josh has been serving full-time with Campus One80 since the summer of 2020. Josh has a strong desire to build deep relationships with people, lead people closer to God through music, and encourage people in their personal faith journeys He began using these gifts and desires on a college campus in the Fall of 2021 at MCC (Monroe Community College). He quickly began to realize the past. year of training, learning, and hosting students over at his house was all worth it. By the end of the spring 2022 semester, Josh had finished his two-year training and was ready to plant a new ministry. That summer a student intern who transferred from MCC to Roberts expressed interest in starting a Campus One80 group at Roberts Wesleyan University. Josh was then asked if he would be interested in planting and directing a Campus One80 ministry at his alma mater (B.A.19’ Religion and Philosophy with a minor in Ministry). He said yes and has been directing the ministry since the fall of 2022.
Josh has seen the fruit of developing long-term relationships with students, leading people closer to God through music, and pointing people one step closer to Jesus wherever God has placed him within the ministry.
Josh is married to his beautiful wife, Brianna. She volunteers for the ministry. They have a lovely daughter, Olivia (Jan. 28/2022).

Samuel serves as an intern with Campus One80 and is thankful God pointed him to the ministry because of the impact it has had on his life. He has developed many relationships through the campus ministry that have encouraged him in his walk with Christ, and he hopes to be able to do the same for others. Samuel sees the need of college students to be exposed to the truth of the Gospel, and this has led him to continue in the ministry and become a part-time minister through Campus One80.
Samuel was born and raised in a Christian home and attended church all his life, but he didn’t truly accept Jesus as his personal Savior until he was a sophomore in high school. It was not until he started attending Campus One80 at Monroe Community College that he discovered what it really meant to follow Jesus Christ and what Christ’s direction for his life was. His faith has been molded, challenged, and grown through the support of his wife, Arianna, and his fellow staff in Campus One80.
Samuel grew up in a home where he was constantly encouraged to grow in his relationship with his Savior and, as a adult, that is something he is seeking to model with his wife, Arianna, in their own family. He is excited to continue sharing Jesus at Monroe Community College and at whatever other campus God may lead him.
