Our Christian faith is the most important part of our campus. Spiritual conversations happen as a natural part of life. But our faith isn’t just talk here. It’s lived out in countless ways in a community mindful of what it means to outwardly share Christ’s love.
Join other students in service by running a shelter for families, traveling the globe on a short-term mission trip, ministering to middle and higher schoolers and more. Specialized ministries like recycling, technology, construction and counseling offer interest-specific opportunities to serve.
