Life Groups

Life groups provide opportunities for spiritual growth for upperclassmen. These groups are led by upperclassmen students, faculty, staff, or local church staff members to encourage, teach, and challenge students while providing a supportive community.  A variety of topics are covered and every small group will look a bit different, but will all focus on being a supportive community that is founded on prayer and the love of Jesus Christ.

To learn more about any of the small groups, contact Becca Palmer.

Your AU Story Begins Now

My greatest fear and challenge as a transfer student was being able to make great friends and integrate smoothly into Anderson University. It is safe to say I have done that. I have a wide circle of friends that stand by me no matter what and God provided me with an endless amount of opportunities to plug in. I feel called to be a communicator and use my communication skills to speak God’s truth and life into people’s lives. I am leading a life group this year, doing Bible studies with friends, and engaging in campus ministries that allow me to thrive in the spiritual gifts God has bestowed onto me.
