Spiritual Life

Chapel

Chapel is the heartbeat of community worship at William Jessup University. Twice a week, we join together as students, faculty, and staff to give glory to God, study His Word, and hear from a broad diversity of speakers/artists from within our community and all over the world! Music worship is primarily student-led from our talented pool of student musicians.

Outreach

Campus Ministries sponsored outreach opportunities are available throughout the year at WJU. These include ministries such as: homeless ministry, urban outreaches, non‐profit service, tutoring, mission trips, discipleship, and more.

Missions

WJU offers domestic and foreign mission trips each year. These are a great way to earn service credit and we encourage every student to consider going on at least one mission trip during their time at Jessup. All Campus Ministries sponsored mission trips count for a semester of Service credit. Students generally raise funds through support letters to cover trip costs.

Spiritual Formation Groups

Spiritual Formation Groups (SFG’s) are small groups of 8-10 students led by staff, faculty, administrators and upperclassmen students. The groups provide a safe place for students to be supported and are required for a portion of the time students are enrolled full-time at WJU. We also offer programs to connect students with mentors in the community, as well as prayer and counseling services on campus.
