THE ADIRONDACK CAMPUS MINISTRY
The Adirondack Campus Ministry (ACM) is a not-for-profit organization that oversees and
raises funds for the Campus Ministry in the Adirondacks. It shall provide a ministry where
members of campus communities of any college, community college, or similar institution of
higher education in the Adirondacks, may develop Christian worship, growth, and service
experiences among students, faculty, administration, local community churches, and citizens, and
all peoples of the world.
CAMPUS MINISTRY VISION STATEMENT
Our vision for Campus Ministry at Paul Smith's College is a strong, active, spiritually focused
fellowship, self-sustaining, and guided by a full time minister. The growing ministry emphasizes
strong values, role modeling, volunteerism, and leadership, and is recognized as an integral and
vibrant presence on campus and in the wider community.

PARTICIPATION AND RELATIONSHIPS
The ACM serves on the campuses of Paul Smith's College and North Country Community
College. Participation in the ministry and program of the ACM shall be open to any member of the
campus community who affirms a desire to participate in the fellowship in support of its purpose.
There shall be no discrimination on the grounds of age, race, sex, sexual orientation, national
origin or belief.
The ACM board of directors is the designated representative body of local churches and
institutions of higher education participating in ACM. Membership on the Board of Directors of the
ACM requires both local churches and institutions of higher learning to agree to cooperate and to
accept, as they are able, a proportionate share of the responsibility for the program of the ACM,
in finances and services. Funding from these churches, denominations, and other sources is
channeled through the ACM Board of Directors. The ACM is also supported by other Protestant
churches, judicatories and ministries. The Board of Directors is accountable to participating
churches and to denominational governing bodies.
