Small-group coordinators work with the chaplain's office to train and support student-initiated and -led small groups, in which students meet regularly to study scripture, pray, and encourage each other to live out their call to follow Christ. These small groups take place all over campus throughout the week and serve as foundational experienced for spiritual growth as students seek to learn from one another and grow in Christlikeness.
