About the Department

The campus ministry department at Benedictine University Mesa focuses on each individual student, guiding them in their faith formation during their time at the school through ministry activities, bible and faith studies and worship services. It also ensures that the University fulfills its mission as a Catholic and Benedictine institution, enriching the faith life of the campus as a whole.

About the Staff

Rob Curtis, Director of Campus Ministry

Rob Curtis is currently the Director of Campus Ministry and Adjunct Theology Faculty at Benedictine University Mesa. He has spent his entire adult life serving the Church in youth ministry, campus ministry, adult faith formation, and teaching at parishes and schools in the Dioceses of Phoenix and Salt Lake City. Rob holds Masters degrees in Pastoral Theology, Secondary Education, and Educational Leadership. While Rob is truly humbled to be able to serve Christ in the numerous ways he has been called, none mean more to him than his vocation as a husband to Carrie and father to his daughters, Taylor and Molly.

Fr. James Aboyi, Campus Chaplain
