Life Groups are student-led small groups that meet on campus for at least one semester. The goals of 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. 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 Life Groups as well.
Barnabas is an anonymous ministry that encourages students to take seriously the work of loving their neighbors. Students involved in Barnabas creatively brainstorm and execute various projects on campus—ranging from decorating a professor’s office to leaving care packages and notes in students’ mailboxes, to sending thank you cards to physical plant and dining services employees in recognition of their behind-the-scenes work. Students in the ministry meet together weekly to fellowship and plan the week’s projects.
