Opportunities for Spiritual Growth
One of the unique features of a Christian College is the emphasis placed upon spiritual development. Kentucky Christian University wants to assist each student in an understanding of and interaction with the Holy Spirit. We believe that it is part of the college's responsibility to the student to provide a structured program that will enhance the student's spiritual development. Chapel services at KCU represent a gathering of the campus family for the purpose of praise and instruction. Each individual chapel service is unique. While the style of worship encompasses a mixture of contemporary and traditional, the focus is always the same. We come together to praise God for His continued work in our lives. Outstanding Christian leaders from both within and beyond the college community speak and challenge all present. There are opportunities for students to be involved in praise teams, sharing missions moments, drama, and special music.
Regular chapel services are held twice weekly on campus, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:00am. Attendance at these services is mandatory. Each semester of full-time enrollment requires a 'Satisfactory' chapel credit. A grade of 'Satisfactory' or 'Unsatisfactory' will be determined by the chapel attendance records and be recorded on the student's transcript.
Discipleship Groups, more commonly known on campus as d-groups, are available to all students. These small groups meet to focus on Bible study, discussion, prayer, and accountability. Led by faculty, staff, and upperclassmen, each group is unique. They have different focuses, different individual goals, and different personalities. Some groups are all males, some all females, and some are mixed. Some groups focus on a particular book of the Bible or a topic of study while others use devotional books or focus on a specific aspect of our spiritual development. Some groups meet early in the morning while others meet at night. We recognize that small groups are an effective way to help individuals foster spiritual growth and encourage self- discipline. Because each person has different needs, our goal is to help you get plugged in to the d-group that is right for you.
Jesus commanded us to "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matthew 28: 18-20a). We at Kentucky Christian University take that seriously. As Christians, we have been called to share the love of Jesus and the message of the Gospel with the world. There are many opportunities for KCU students to participate in a variety of short term mission trips.
Each year, students organize different trips. In recent years, KCU student groups have traveled to Haiti, St. Vincent, inner city Chicago, The Christian Children's Home of Ohio, North Carolina to help with flood relief, Crank's Creek Survival Center and many different cities in Mexico. Student groups generally travel over Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break, and for Spring Break. Some shorter trips, such as Crank's Creek, occur over weekends during the semester.
