Spiritual Life Groups are student-led small groups that meet on campus for at least one semester. The goals of Spiritual Life Groups are two-fold: 1) students will grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ, and 2) students will develop meaningful friendships that support their Christian formation. Spiritual Life Groups consist of anywhere from three to twelve members who come together weekly for Bible study, prayer, discussion and support. Occasionally, faculty and staff lead Spiritual Life Groups as well.
