Contact your admissions advisor

SERVE is a nine-month discipleship tool, designed to foster personal, relational, and spiritual growth in students embarking on post-secondary studies. Through a combination of formal, academic training and practical, hands-on experience, students will become equipped to engage in effective cross-cultural service, whether in local contexts or global contexts. SERVE emphasizes three themes: challenge, community, and change.

Challenge (Personal Growth)

  • Classes: sharpen your mind, strengthen your faith.
  • Missions: learn to serve in local and global contexts.

Community (Relational Growth)

  • Campus Life: build lifelong relationships with like-minded people.
  • Team Building: learn to serve alongside others in a team setting.

Change (Spiritual Growth)

  • Chapels: regular worship and teaching with your classmates.
  • Prayer: having our hearts shaped by the ultimate Servant, Christ.
