Mission locations around the world
We believe spiritual formation is the cornerstone of your complete education. It’s something we integrate with our campus experience, our curriculums and our community.
We are committed to the vision of our founder, David Lipscomb, who believed that spiritual growth and Bible study must be taught alongside rigorous academics for a full and rich education. The Office of Spiritual Formation works to facilitate the spiritual growth of our students and create an encouraging, Christ-centered community on campus.
Our office is here to support students in the development of their faith through weekly chapel, mentorship networks, and other services. We want to walk with you on your spiritual journey and help you better connect to our community.
Come visit us in the lower level of the Bennet Campus Center. We invite you to make an appointment to get to know us or to receive pastoral care
Our Spiritual Commitment to You
Our emphasis on spiritual formation goes beyond not only the walls of the classroom but also the walls of the campus. Lipscomb’s focus on church growth and the development of knowledgeable and faithful ministers has led to the creation of new resources in the College of Bible and Ministry. Our Institute for Christian Spirituality offers resources to local church leadership as well, to help in the spiritual formation of their congregations. Our mission programs are robust and expansive to include more than 60 mission trips around the world each year, sending out more than 950 students, faculty, staff and community members to serve in other nations.
Perhaps the most important aspect of Lipscomb’s commitment to spiritual formation is our intentional focus on developing an atmosphere that allows for your spiritual questioning and growth on our campus. Students are encouraged to ask questions, express doubts and challenge themselves spiritually to find their ministry, all within a safe environment that welcomes their uncertainty and champions their faithfulness.
