The ministry of Life Groups exist to provide an immediate place of belonging for new students, helping them find their place in the Union community.
The Life Group Leaders facilitate this transition by investing in new students and showing them how to navigate the college experience.
Life Groups and Life Group Leaders are committed to a gospel obsessed approach to the Christian life and ministry - devoted to serving the next generation of students as they seek to live a life of Christian discipleship within the context of the campus, the local community, the church, and the world.
