Just like an Apple App, the Community Life Team strives to engage the passion of students in various ways to make multiple connecting points on campus. With activities ranging from basketball to yoga, Bible studies to the Boys and Girls Club, the endeavors of CLT meet the needs of students and provide outlets for creative and fun activities.
The words of Frederick Buechner from “Wishful Thinking” provide the basis for CLT’s purpose:
“The kind of work God usually calls you to is the kind of work that you need most to do and that the world most needs to have done… The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
Each CLT member’s endeavor falls under the categories of HEART (“engaging in the arts of creative expression”), HABITS (“developing healthy bodies and practices”), HEAD (“stretching the mind and intellect”), HOPE (“strengthening the heart and spirit”), and HANDS (“practicing citizenship and stewardship”).
Email the CLT leaders to become involved in these endeavors:
