Minister of College Students and Young Adults:  Rev. Sarah Belles


DUMC’s Adopt-a-Student program is an incredible ministry to our young adults. We adopt both DUMC youth who have grown up in DUMC and are now away at college and Davidson College students. The transition to college can be a stressful and chaotic time - it’s a big change. This program acts as a bridge connecting students to DUMC while they are in college.

Interested in being adopted by your church family?

Interested in adopting a student?

Please consider adopting a college student! This program enables individuals, families, small groups, circles, and Sunday school classes to adopt a student. You can choose which student you would like to adopt over the upcoming academic year. You may want to send handwritten notes, “thinking of you” emails, or care packages.  We will provide you with the student’s school schedule and some information about things they enjoy to help you connect and care for your student! Most importantly, we ask that you pray for your student- there is no greater gift you can offer! If you are interested in adopting a student, contact Rev. Sarah Belles (704-892-8277).  


At midnight Christmas Eve (or rather, Christmas morning!), join us for pancakes and all the fixings, Christmas music, and the opportunity to catch up with other DUMC college students. More details to come!
