Real Life
We produce our campus-wide weekly meeting, Real Life, where we come together as a movement to worship God and grow in Knowing Christ, Surrendering to Christ, and Sharing Christ. Real Life is the largest student group meeting happening anywhere on campus each week, and you can be a part of helping to make it happen! We need new people with fresh ideas, and those who have been around a while and know what we’re all about. Whether you have specific skills you want to use, or just want to serve in any capacity you can, we need you and there’s a role for you! Here are just a few of the many ways we could use your help: sound/lights/technical equipment, set-up and teardown, decoration, community center, greeting, and more! Interested in being a part?

Retreats Team
