STUDENT LIFE & SPIRITUAL FORMATION
At CCU, we believe that incorporating spiritual formation into the classroom is integral to our mission of developing students who follow Christ and positively impact their community, country, and world. Point University shares our passion for spiritual formation, and in fact, Point University's very purpose as a university - as stated in the mission statement - is wrapped up in the idea of “educating students for Christ-centered service and leadership throughout the world.” Point focuses on integrating faith into every discipline; providing spiritual formation opportunities and taking faith into the workplace.
When it comes to spiritual growth outcomes, Point University talks about these in three primary ways:
- Every student at Point University will see community ministry as an essential part of what it means to say “Jesus is Lord.”
- Every student at Point University will see the importance of integrating faith and vocation.
- Some students at Point University will sense that they are called to ordained ministry as vocation.
At Point, the most important question is not “Where are you spiritually?” Rather we are more interested in “Where can you be?” Spiritual formation is about the whole person – and we strive to provide opportunities in a variety of contexts which address not merely “going to church” but “the whole person.”
The apostle Peter perhaps says it best: “continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord.” (2 Peter 3:18) That really is what spiritual formation is all about at Point University. It doesn’t matter where you start – but it does matter where we are headed!

Each semester, Point University provides opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to spend the day serving the community at a variety of sites across the Southeast.
Impact Day is intended to strengthen student, faculty, and staff relationships by serving the community alongside one another; raise student awareness of what goes on beyond the campus “fence”; and put into practice Point’s belief that all Christians should be involved in ministry, regardless of vocational status.
