The Office of Spiritual Development’s mission is

“To invite the university community into a deeper experience of God’s love and to support students in their spiritual journey by creating opportunities for growth in Christ through reflection, discovery, and practice of our faith in Christ.”

Within this mission, Chaplaincy Ministries practically seeks to express this mission through avenues of prayer, corporate worship and arts, service and pastoral care to the entire PLNU community. We intentionally provide holistic opportunities and space for the development and maturation of faith within community. Our desire is to grow together as disciples and to help one another toward spiritual maturity in Christ for His kingdom purposes. In short, we are here, we are available, and we want to get to know and walk with you during your journey, especially while at PLNU.
