Spiritual Life

MACU strives to create an environment that will encourage a student’s spiritual development.

The Student Life Department works with students individually, in group discipleship, and campus-wide to create and maintain a living and learning environment that will enhance the spiritual development of the student body. Multiple levels of interaction and engagement, spiritual development occur in dorm life, the classroom, through social interaction, mentorships, and relationships within student groups. Our Student Life Team oversees our weekly worship services and community groups that students participate in throughout the semester. Along with our college counselors, the Student Life Department is available for spiritual or personal needs as they arise in the lives of our students. Through university-wide events, such as our Missions Emphasis Week and Spiritual Emphasis Week, students are exposed to different areas of Christian service and worship.
