When you walk into the community room at Edgewater Woods nursing home on a Monday night, you might be startled by the scene.

Ministry opportunities have been a part of Anderson University’s campus since its inception in 1917 as Anderson Bible Training School, growing larger along with the enrollment of students. However, the catalyst for structure came when President Robert H. Reardon hired Don Collins BA ’51, who had been working as the pastor of Park Place Church of God, as the college’s campus pastor in January of 1978.
