Spiritual Life

We educate students to impact the nations with the message of Christ.  Our faith, mission, & values permeate every aspect of the CIU experience and are the foundation of spiritual life at our Christian university. 

Weekly Chapel Services

Chapel services are central to CIU’s educational program, designed to inspire and motivate fellowship and spiritual growth. The chapel schedule brings the entire university community together for worship. Small groups also connect students in a more meaningful way. 

The CIU values are reflected in every student as they engage communities locally and abroad.  

Local Church Involvement

Students are encouraged —really, expected — to join a local church.

Mission Trips

Mission trips allow students to share God’s word with the world. 

CIU leadership lives out CIU’s mission and values by sharing their hearts and life’s work with the community beyond our campus. 

The spirit of Christ lives at CIU and in everyone who works, studies and resides here.
