WE AIM TO HELP STUDENTS KNOW JESUS AS THE DEFINING REALITY OF THEIR LIVES, CAPTURE A VISION OF GOD THAT OVERCOMES COMPETING LOYALTIES, AND FORM A LIFE BUILT UPON SCRIPTURE.
To accomplish this, we focus on three fundamental aspects of the student vocation: church community participation, scriptural engagement, and practicing spiritual disciplines. Here are a few key facets of our Spiritual Life together:
King's Liturgy: We engage The King’s Liturgy as the defining experience within our Christian community. It outlines the rhythms we celebrate with the Church at large — selected Scripture readings, Sabbath habits, and celebration of Holy Days and historical events.
Lectionary Notes: Notes on the liturgy are published every week to give students and faculty focus and discussion points from the lectionary readings.
Fall Retreat: Students, staff, and faculty gather outside of the City to kick off the academic year with a school-wide retreat that includes teaching, worship and the annual Drama Contest.
Corporate Worship (“Refuge”): Twice per month, students gather to worship and to hear testimonies from various members of the College community.
All-Campus Gatherings: Once per month, Students gather to hear Dr. Gregory Thornbury expound upon the Scriptures and discuss the tension between culture and faith.
Church Involvement: Get involved with a local church. To help find one, check out FaithStreet.
City Engagement: In addition to a day of service in which the entire community rolls up their sleeves and serves together, each House is aligned with an iconic ministry in NYC such as the Bowery Mission, Young Life, Avail, NY Gospel Mission, Restore, and so on.
