This course is designed to introduce CIU, its ethos, and core values, to both first-year students and students in their first semester at CIU. The ethos of CIU is two-fold: One part is about who you are becoming in Christ, and one part is about how God wants to use you to reach the whole world. The process of the student’s spiritual formation, their developing walk with God, is explored through the students’ “Rhythm of Life.” Students are also invited into a multiple year journey of spiritual formation in a community with goals of maturity, transparency, worship, and service. The goal of this course is to maximize the student’s potential to earnestly pursue spiritual formation during their educational career here at CIU, and to build a foundation for continued spiritual formation in life and ministry.
