Belmont University | Belief in Something Greater
University Minister Heather Daugherty


Welcome to the Office of University Ministries!

We are so glad that you have chosen to become a part of the Belmont community. We know that your time here on campus will be a significant time in your life. It is our prayer that during your time at Belmont, you will be open to God’s work in you and through you. It is our desire to walk alongside you during these years of your life, and consider it a great privilege to be able to do so. We care deeply about your formation as a person of faith and we want to invest in your development as a leader. The professional and student staff of the Office of University Ministries look forward to journeying with you during your time at Belmont.

University Ministries engages with students in both formal and informal ways. Our office works provide 'formal' programs and events that help you connect with your peers, refine your leadership skills, serve the community - both locally and globally, and discover what you believe and help you live that out. We are also grateful for the opportunities that we have to connect with you informally - grabbing a cup of coffee, meeting for lunch, or walking and talking across campus. We're committed to getting to know our Belmont students and finding ways to encourage and challenge one another on the journey of faith.

We know that each student at Belmont comes from a different place in regards to their faith. We understand that, and work to create safe space where we can have intentional, and often challenging, conversations about issues of faith. Together, we can ask difficult questions, wrestle with the answers, and allow God to use that to shape us as a community. The links on this page will introduce you to our staff and ministry opportunities both on and off-campus. We’d love to have you drop by our office, send an e-mail or text, or talk on the phone. We look forward to hearing from you!

Grace and Peace,

Heather Gerbsch Daugherty
University Minister
