Student Spiritual Organizations
Campus Ministry and Community Service currently sponsors eight spiritual groups that meet regularly on campus and may also engage in community outreach projects throughout the academic year. Explore your faith with fellow students in a respectful and thoughtful environment.
Baptist Student Union (BSU)
BSU is a non-denominational bible study group that meets one evening a week on campus. In addition to meetings, the group also hosts several student events on campus each semester.
Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU)
Campus Crusade for Christ is an interdenominational Christian organization committed to meeting the spiritual needs of college students by offering small group Bible studies, weekly events and conferences and retreats.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)
The purpose of this group is to bring together athletes to talk about their concerns, doubts, feelings, and faith. Teammates fellowship and share commitment to Jesus Christ around the common bond of sports. From this foundation, our FCA group will live out FCA’s stated pupors, “to present the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the Church.” This group is open to more than athletes; it is open to coaches, spectators, and people who simply enjoy sports. Our goal as a group would be to spread God’s word through our campus’s sports, and through our everyday lives.
Lutheran Student Fellowship (LSF)
Lutheran Student Fellowship strives to shape college students into Christian leaders by nurturing their faith so that the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be boldly proclaimed through acts of leadership, service, and fellowship within the Maryville University campus and the world beyond.
Muslim Student Association (MSA)
The purpose of this association will be to serve the best interests of the Muslim students of Maryville University. We will develop a dynamic, united and welcome community on campus, raise awareness of Islam, and help people become better Muslims. The MSA shall promote unity among the Muslim students, exemplify Islam and its values to Muslims and non-Muslims alike through events and activities, and promote understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims.
Maryville University Jewish Student Union (MUJSU)
The MUJSU will be a place to organize Jewish events on campus and discuss ideas to get the Jewish community on campus involved.
Pray Until Something Happens (PUSH)
The PUSH Group is a love inspired organization aimed at empowering and inspiring students to fulfill their maximum potential through communication, teaching and learning in order to equip and develop students to positively impact their families, communities, the nation and the world as a whole.
Spirit & Truth (S&T)
Spirit and Truth works to bring young adults into a relationship with Christ through worship of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, study of Catholic Church teaching and sacred scripture and celebrations of Catholic traditions, while forming a community of life-giving relationships.
