Partners in your spiritual journey
The holistic nature of a Messiah College education compels faculty, staff and administrators alike to be committed to your spiritual formation as a student.
At Messiah, we want you to grow in your faith and have a passion for Christian community. Join in a small group, find a personal mentor, challenge yourself in a campus ministry role. From the first day you step on campus to your last, we hope your time at Messiah is a time of growth for you spiritually and academically, and a time where you’ll learn to explore, question and deepen your core convictions and Christian beliefs.
Through complementary men's and women's small groups and ministry efforts as well as a monthly large group gathering, Koinonia is designed to be a place where students can easily find a place to plug in, can participate in a ministry that is relevant to their concerns, and can be challenged along with their peers to grow deeper in their faith. Koinonia is a campus-wide ministry; anyone from any part of campus can come by themselves or with some friends and join a small group of their choice.
The Worship Community is a co-curricular learning group comprised of students and educators dedicated to learning more about the nature and leadership of Christian worship.
Adventure challenge activities, Bible studies, team-building initiatives and more.
