Campus Discipleship

Core Groups

HLGU Core Groups meet once a week for about an hour and are led by upperclassmen who are passionate about campus ministry. Core Groups are designed to provide a personal setting for students to intentionally meet so that they might spiritually grow through studies, prayer, and community engagement. Core Groups give students an opportunity to study topics more in-depth while also establishing relationships through shared experiences.

The Gathering

The Gathering is a student-led worship night once a month at 8 p.m. on Monday nights in the Loft, located in the L.A. Foster Student Center. The Gathering allows students to engage in worship and discipleship while also building community with one another.
