Campus Chaplaincy & Spiritual Support

Reverend Jon Perez and Reverend Clark Brown

Welcome to the CSUMB Campus Chaplaincy, a service to students, faculty and staff of CSUMB. We provide pastoral care for individuals and the campus community, interfaith and interdenominational resources, and support to faith-related clubs, programs and events at CSUMB. CSUMB Chaplains serve all students, faculty and staff regardless of religious tradition or denomination.

If you are interested in on-campus Bible study, need a speaker for your club, group or class, or are looking for someone with whom you can talk, please contact us at (831) 582-4671. If you are looking for other faith groups or traditions, we can help you, too.
