Small Groups

The Chapel & Spiritual Formation Office, along with Student Life & Services, offers small group opportunities for the spiritual and personal growth of students. The following small groups are available to students:

Cultural Spiritual Formation (CSF) Groups

CSF groups exist to help students explore their own cultural identity and develop a greater understanding of other cultures through sharing personal stories, participating in theological and spiritual reflection, and applying this to current issues of culture and diversity. The desired outcome of CSF Groups is that students will be spiritually transformed through developing a greater sense of self awareness and sensitivity to cultural differences, and that this transformation will be seen in students' future work, ministry, family, and personal lives. CSF groups begin winter quarter and require a two-quarter commitment.
