Spiritual Formation – Growing Spiritually

Spiritual formation is central at Master’s and for that reason we provide a variety of opportunities for spiritual and personal growth. We recognize that the positive habits you develop in college can remain with you throughout your life. Our aim is to make your faith stronger so that you will be committed to following Christ, as well as making him known to others, regardless of where you go when you leave Master’s.

In addition to encouraging students to have their own personal devotions, as well as meeting in small groups in their residence for devotions, we offer a variety of events so that the wider community can come together for worship.

Chapels

Tuesday chapels play a vital role at Master’s as they provide opportunities for the college community to come together for prayer, worship, and reflection. Student-based worship teams, along with a wide variety of speakers, encourage students, staff and faculty to grow deeper in their relationship with God. There are also occasional chapels on Sunday nights, class chapels, as well as chapels on the various residence floors throughout the semester.  Podcasts of our Tuesday chapels are available here.

Ignition Days and Fusion Days

Ignition Days, which are held at the end of Orientation Week at the campus in the Fall semester and Fusion Days, which are held off campus at a retreat centre early in the Winter semester, provide additional opportunities for students to connect with God and each other through worship, fun and relationship building.

Wing Events

Resident Assistants hold wing events in the residence on a regular basis to provide students with opportunities to develop spiritually and to connect with each other, as well as to pass along information that students need to know pertaining to living in residence.

Prayer

Recognizing the importance of prayer, Master’s has dedicated rooms in the residence and the Administrative Building (i.e. Classroom D) that students can use as prayer rooms.

Connections Group

Each semester students meet with their Connections group for a time of reflection, discussion, personal support, prayer and social interaction. These groups, which are led by faculty, staff or local ministry leaders, provide exceptional opportunities for the students to get to know each other and to be mentored by experienced leaders. Life-long friendships develop between students, as well as with their Connections leaders, as relationships are developed and nurtured.
