Protestant Campus Ministry


Rev. Darice KW Dawson,* PCM pastor since 1996, received her Bachelor of Arts in Human Development Services (Mental Health track) from Eckerd College in 1991, and her Master of Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary in 1994. She is specially trained for pastoral ministry and has an avid interest in the unique needs of young adults. Darice is an ordained Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) minister, but her work on campus is ecumenical in nature. Thus, she equally represents on campus all Protestant Christian denominations and churches. Look for her on Facebook.

* Darice is pronounced Duh-rees'

Darice is available for presentations and preaching on or off campus. She has a great deal of knowledge and experience that she loves to share. Topics include the following:

  • Florida Tech Protestant Campus Ministry
  • The History of Women in Ministry
  • Reaching out to young adults
  • Understanding the generations
  • Ministerial technology
  • Interreligious dialogue
  • Christian ecumenicity
  • Evangelism
  • Para-church ministries
  • Christian marriage
  • Parenting with Christian values
  • God's gift of singing
  • The eye of amateur photography

If your church or organization wishes to tap into this resource, feel free to contact her by mail, e-mail:, or Facebook. Darice's office hours are flexible, and she is also available on call or by appointment.

Darice is married to a Florida Tech alumnus who has worked on the Space Shuttle team and as an adjunct professor of physics, and now works in medical research. They have two children.
