What’s a Spiritual Formation Group?
Spiritual Formation Groups (SFG) are led by faculty, staff, or upperclassmen, and usually consist of six to eight students. Though each group will have a different focus, all will have the same goal, and each will contain elements of accountability, encouragement, devotion, and prayer. The ultimate goal of SFGs at LCU is to have Christ formed in us. Participation is required for all full-time undergraduate students.
How do I join an SFG?
Students sign up for a new SFG at the beginning of each school year. Look for SFG announcements on campus or in your LCU email inbox. Contact Student Development for more information.
