Hannibal-LaGrange University provides a variety of discipleship options including Authentic, Master’s 12 Marks Fraternity, and Sister 7 Sorority.
HLGU’s Authentic: Faculty & Staff Initiated Student Discipleship takes place every other Thursday at 6:00 pm in the Carroll Missions Center Lobby and is based on Luke 12:48: “To whom much has been given much shall be required.” These gatherings feature real life, down to earth, practical application of our faith discussions. These discussions are deep but applicable and profound but practical.
Sister & Sorority & Master’s 12 Marks Fraternity
Sister 7 and Master’s Mark are intentional discipleship groups initiated in every dorm hall with a tier from resident directors to resident assistants to resident students. With the purpose of encouraging, teaching, helping, mentoring, leading, praying, and serving, these groups participate in the following: Bible studies, prayer groups, devotions, counsel, fellowship, student activities/discipleship, and leadership development. HLGU has chosen Psalm 111 as the basis for these groups, with their vision being to promote knowledge, wisdom, understanding, mission, excellence, and service.
Master’s 12 Marks Fraternity’s purpose statement: to connect young men in pursuit of purity by maturing them to know God’s Word and inspiring them to live out biblical truths daily with a sincere devotion to seek God’s will and His vision for developing and maintaining healthy relationships.
Sister 7 Sorority’s purpose statement: To connect young women in pursuit of purity by maturing them to know God’s Word and inspiring them to live out biblical truths daily with a sincere devotion to seek God’s will and His vision for developing and maintaining healthy relationships.
The Living Room
The Living Room is an open forum formatted discussion event in which students are able to discuss important issues that impact their lives. These events are designed to bring in experts of various fields and allow the students to ask them questions in a non-threatening and personal way. This year’s theme is the topic of stewardship. We are seeking to help students understand how to be a good steward of what God has given them, as well as, how to put these principles into practice.
An important aspect of the University’s discipleship program is utilizing the more spiritually mature students to disciple other students. This is done in a variety of formats in which students are given the opportunity to foster relationships that encourage and challenge one another towards maturity in Christ. The hope of this program is that our students would become more effective disciple-makers during their time at HLGU.
