Muslim to lead university chaplain association for the first time

by Antony Bushfield

Imam Adeel Zeb will be the next president of National Association of College and University Chaplains in the United States.

It's the first time a Muslim takes up the one year voluntary role.

Zeb said he hoped his appointment would encourage other non-Christians to enter into chaplaincy.

"When we were being sworn into our new positions, it felt like a civil rights moment," he told The Huffington Post.

Most American chaplains are Christians as they have to serve as the pastor of the on campus chapel too.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
