Who am I?
My name is Cody Nielsen. I am a United Methodist Campus Minister at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities. A provisional elder from the Iowa Annual Conference, I am serving under appointment to Minnesota in extension ministries. I am also currently the NE regional coordinator of the National Campus Ministry Association and President-Elect as of September 1, 2011.
Throughout my years on campus, I have been shaped, formed, and ultimately transformed by campus ministry. It is the reason I came into this field and the reason I left Iowa for the eastern seaboard. And it’s importance can not be underestimated. So, with a prayerful heart and a determined spirit, I work to revitalize the ministry field on campus for all the students that are currently and will in the future attend the university.
