While grounded in the values of the Mennonite faith - peace, justice and service - spiritual life groups and activities are open to all. Participants in spiritual life activities represent Mennonite, Catholic, United Methodist, Baptist, Church of God, Church of Christ and many other denominations.

Fellowship groups, service groups, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Bible studies, student-planned worship services these are just a few of the opportunities offered through the spiritual life office.
Christian concerts by artists such as Shaun Groves and Jars of Clay have kicked off Spiritual Life Week (SLW), an event held each semester and planned by a student committee. The week's activities typically include multiple presentations by a guest speaker, parties, an air band contest and praise time at the College Cabin.
