Life at Spring Arbor University

At SAU, we’re so much more than students, professors and classrooms. We’re a community. Here, you’ll find mentors and life-long friends. All united under Christ’s light and mission. Come discover a truly authentic and meaningful college experience — the kind where you become the person God intends you to be.

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.
