Religious Life

Letter to the Students

Greetings, students of Mississippi Valley State University. My name is Rev. Brandon Bigelow, and I have the privilege and honor of serving as your new Director of Religious Life. I am delighted to be a part of your educational journey and to provide you with an enriching spiritual experience throughout your matriculation here at Mississippi Valley State University.

My number one goal is to assist you with making intricate or complex matters more simplistic and practical. It is my aim to foster the development of students’ physical, social, moral, and spiritual growth. Spirituality plays a major role in one’s self-development. However, a well-rounded life is one in which the mind and spirit are intertwined. To this end, in addition to worship services that welcome all faiths, programming and lectures are offered which stimulates critical thinking and raises level of consciousness.

I have an open door policy for students who are seeking spiritual guidance or have questions about life’s experiences. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact me to schedule a time to assist you. It is my prayer that you have a blissful and productive school year.

Sincerely yours,

Reverend Brandon Bigelow
Director of Religious Life
