Blue Fish | Religious Life | Get Involved | Presbyterian College | Clinton SC
Bluefish

Bluefish are students serving as ministers for the campus community while developing their individual gifts. One of the ways Bluefish serves is an open forum called “Fishbowl” where students can discuss topics and their opinions in a safe space. Bluefish also works with Peer Mentors and RA’s to ensure the well-being of the students on campus through intentional ministry and care. One of these ways will be through an all-campus worship event every semester put together through the help of Bluefish. If you have any questions, contact Zoe Montague or William Lowry.
