Spiritual Life at Faith
The Student Life staff is here to help students take the next step spiritually. Our desire is to see them grow to become more like Christ as a result of their time here at Faith. Many elements of life here at Faith help nurture this spiritual growth.
Chapel Students meet every morning for chapel. It is a great break between classes, and a time to sit under the preaching and teaching of God’s Word. Our student body chaplain brings in a variety of pastors, missionaries, staff, and faculty who challenge our students from the Word. Some of our specialized chapels include those led by students, time devoted to prayer, instruction in practical life skills, and meetings with the deans in a group setting. Check out some of our past chapel messages here.
Dorm Devotions Students living on campus meet once a week for dorm devotions. This is a time where the resident advisors share from God’s Word and seek to encourage the students on his/her floor. Students also meet once a week for suite devos. Each suite of 4–8 students has one room leader who is responsible to encourage and hold accountable the men or women in the suite. This a great time for prayer, accountability, and sharing how God is working in the lives of our students. Students will form lifelong friendships as they learn from God’s Word together in these settings.
Discipleship and Counseling The Student Life Department is available for weekly Bible studies, counseling, and encouragement. We love to meet with individual students over coffee, in our offices, or in our homes to help them grow spiritually. We want to help students apply God’s Word to the stuff of life and will meet students wherever and whenever to help make that happen.
Local Churches: A huge part of Faith is the involvement students will have in their local churches. There are more 25 like-minded churches within a 30-mile radius of Faith that students may choose to attend. Students will have the opportunity to get plugged in and learn what practical ministry looks like within the local church. Students will also get to know godly men, women, and families who will have a great impact in their lives as they study here at Faith.
