“And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
The mission of University Ministries is to foster lives of significance and service by engaging students and the campus and equipping leaders for the purpose of extending the kingdom of God. One way we are seeking to equip leaders as followers of Jesus who bear witness to the glory of God in the kingdom of God is the Discipleship Movement on campus.
We believe that discipleship is a corporate project that encompasses all of life: who we are, what we believe, and how we live. In this project, God in Christ through the Holy Spirit conforms us into the image of Christ. And in the Discipleship Movement at North Park we want to invite students deeper into this project.
The Discipleship Movement offers students an opportunity to walk together and be formed into the image of Christ as lovers of God and neighbor. This is kingdom work, and work which requires one another, so we are asking students to make a year-long commitment to do so with a group of fellow students. If you are interested in learning more about the Discipleship Movement, contact Erik Borggren.
“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35
Small groups are one way we seek to do life together and grow as followers of Jesus. They are a way for us to grow deeper in our faith, in our self-understanding, and in our love for others. Choosing to follow Jesus and to love as Jesus loves is the way of true life, and we are invited to do so together! Being plugged into a Small Group is one way to walk this journey with others.
You can connect with a small group throughout the academic year. If you are interested in being a part of a small group on campus contact Erik Borggren to ask about your options. Click here to sign up.
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” Acts 2:42
Prayer plays an important role in University Ministries. In prayer, we acknowledge that all of life is lived before and with God. A prayer room is located near the UMin office and provides a place for students to get away and pray. But our hope is that there would also be spaces for prayer in every apartment and house on campus. Contact Erik Borggren with any questions you may have about the prayer team or with ideas for prayer gatherings on campus.
