The Spiritual Life Core, formerly known as the Spiritual Life Committee, is accepting applications from students looking to focus their attention toward planning spiritual activities on campus.
Students can apply for the SLC in the Students’ Association offices located downstairs in the Campus Center. The deadline for applications is Thursday.
Mark Lewis, director of Spiritual Life and student ministries, said SLC has three main purposes: organizing weekly meetings, praying for the campus and developing spiritual activities that would impact students.
Lewis said the SLC usually has a few students who actually serve on the committee.
“We may only have four or five serving on the actual committee, but we have an unlimited number of students who can serve with them,” Lewis said.
This school year, the SLC has been responsible for the Chapel Prayer Room, in which students meet Mondays and Wednesdays, Encouragement Days and the Daily Bread devotional newsletter.
Suzie MacKenzie, a junior computer science major from Fort Worth, said that SLC initially mailed the newsletter to all students but then sent the booklets out on a subscription basis.
“In the end, we had over 150 students and faculty signed up to receive the booklet,” MacKenzie said. “I would love to see Daily Bread continue and touch more students’ lives next year.”
Of all the new activities SLC has introduced this year, MacKenzie said prayer has been the top priority of the group.
“We believe that God can accomplish more through our prayers for the spiritual life of students than we ever could through just doing spiritual activities,” she said.
Students can also be involved with the SLC by praying daily for the group, MacKenzie said.
“Spiritual Life is about following Jesus and having a connection with him,” MacKenzie said. “Pray daily for the people you meet and for the leaders. Pray that God uses this campus to its fullest potential.”
