Curriculum and Theme
Spiritual Life Theme 2015-16 - Freedom to Belong
At George Fox University, our hope is that all of our students will encounter God in life-changing ways during their years here. Whether you come to GFU with a long-time relationship with God, or whether you are just beginning to ask questions about who God is, we invite you to pursue your faith in Jesus in this place.
As a Christian college begun by the evangelical Friends church, we are deeply committed to the spiritual formation of students. As a part of that commitment, you will have many opportunities: Bible classes taught by world-class scholars, and you will participate in diverse worship in our weekly chapel services. You will be encouraged to serve others and to build meaningful relationships through some incredible ministry opportunities, and you will be challenged to embrace the ministry of reconciliation as a peacemaker in this world. Our hope is that you will experience our “Be Known promise” personally through the care of our Christ-centered faculty and staff.
Our office is here to be a resource and encouragement to you during your years at GFU. Please feel free to set up a coffee time with one of our SpIL staff, check out some of our amazing ministry opportunities, sign up for a Life Group, or swing by to have meaningful conversations with other students in the Intercultural Life Lounge. We look forward to seeing what God will do among us this year!
Grace and Peace to you,
University Pastor & Dean for Spiritual and Intercultural Life
