Be the Light.
At MVNU, faith is vital to our identity. One of the elements of the mission of MVNU is the cultivation of Christlikeness. We seek to foster an environment that encourages growth in grace, and to provide opportunities that address spiritual formation from a holistic perspective.
Spiritual formation can happen through many avenues. It is our goal to provide you with the opportunity to practice a variety of spiritual disciplines throughout your time at MVNU, recognizing that each person encounters God in different ways. As a part of our corporate commitment to cultivate Christlikeness, we require every student participate in MVNU’s Spiritual Formation Program. It is our hope that through active, consistent participation, you will mature in body, soul, mind, and spirit.
Students have the opportunity to earn required Spiritual Formation Credits through a variety of disciplines that include corporate worship (chapel services), small group participation, mentoring relationships, community service, and wellness initiatives.
(At MVNU) I became a person who did not just hang onto my parents’ faith, but learned to ask tough questions in order to mold my own faith.Kayla (Ledford) Hamilton, '15
