Spiritual Life

You, transformed.

Your spiritual growth is just as important as your academic growth. Our prayer is that you will experience a whole-person transformation during your time here. Discovering your God-given gifts. Having them honed — as iron sharpens iron —through the fellowship of a loving, supportive community. And ultimately going out from Spring Arbor equipped to bring the light of Christ to a world in need.

Be a part of the Tradition

From the first tradition — Parting at the Plaza — to the last tradition — Cutting of the Ivy — there are many opportunities to make lifelong friends and participate in uniquely SAU activities.
