Student-Led Discipleship Groups
Discipleship groups (D-Groups) are designed for Sophomore, Junior, and Senior students with the purpose of cultivating intentional spaces of conversation and spiritual formation in a small group setting. All of our student-led groups are co-led and meet weekly throughout the school year on various days and times.
Staff-Led Discipleship Groups
Our staff and faculty-led Discipleship groups (D-Groups) are designed for Sophomore, Junior, and Senior students with the purpose of cultivating intentional spaces of conversation and spiritual formation in a small group setting. All of these groups are led by a selected faculty or staff member and are limited to a maximum of 8-10 students. Each group meets for 8-10 weeks during one academic semester and has a theme or book chosen by faculty or staff member.
Spiritual Mentorship Groups (M-Groups) are designed for Sophomore, Junior, and Senior students with the purpose of establishing mentorship partners for students. Groups are led by a staff, faculty, or trusted community member and are limited to just 2-3 students of the same gender with some options for a one-on-one pairing. These groups will meet for one hour, every week, for one semester with the option to continue meeting regularly afterward. These micro-group partnerships create intimate and trusted relationships that foster vulnerability and accountability in your spiritual journey. Careful consideration will be given to matching mentors and mentees together and in some circumstances, a student may be matched for a distinctly one-on-one mentorship pairing.
Created Space events are offered regularly throughout the year and serve as a place to help students recognize their creativity as part of God’s image with them and the potential that their artistic gifts have to open up a richer expression of personal and corporate worship. Retreat gatherings offer a space for students to engage their faith outside their normal schedules and rhythms, which helps develop spiritual disciplines such as rest, contemplation, and prayer.
