Spiritual Care

Here for you

We provide spiritual care through one-on-one conversations over "coffee", a meal, or through email/phone conversation. We are also available to help you navigate through the college process, help you find/connect to a local church community, or any other need/question that comes up in your life. 

Note: Office Hours are being offered virtually until further notice. 

 

Office Hours

Here for you

As part of our spiritual care services we provide office hours or drop-in times where you can connect with one of us to talk about anything really. If you prefer, you can also email us and schedule an appointment. 

Office Hours for the fall semester will look different due to Covid-19 restrictions, but we are pleased to still be able to offer you drop in hours. All you need to do is send us a message through Facebook or Instagram or use the “lets chat” feature on the website. Let us know you’d like a meeting- either right away or a scheduled one. And we’ll email you back within 5 minutes with a zoom link, if you message us during office hours (otherwise we’ll respond first thing during our next office hours… i.e. If you send a message on Saturday night, we’ll respond Monday at 9am).

For more information on how this will work watch our intro video

Our office hours for the autumn semester will be

Monday 9-230pm

Tuesday 9-230pm

Wednesday 9-12pm

Thursday 9-230pm

Friday 9-12pm

*Office hours will be cancelled on days the college is closed (i.e Thanksgiving Monday)

(Note: those are the times we will respond within 5 minutes, but availability for appointments can extend beyond those times)

 

Spiritual Discipline

Here for you

We know that being part of a faith community is more than just joining a small group and attending a worship service, its about your personal relationship with God. To help you nurture your own faith we'll be introducing and teaching various Spiritual Disciplines throughout the year, using the Spiritual Disciplines Handbook by Adele Ahlberg Calhoun (2015). 


Each week our blog will include a write up about a discipline, some reflection questions, and activities, along with a video that introduces the discipline. Our Spiritual Disciplines will be posted to our blog each week

Mentoring

Here for You

Mentoring is an important and necessary part of life- we all need people who are intentionally walking alongside us to help us navigate through the joys and struggles in life. As part of our spiritual care work, we can help connect students with a mentor. The mentor and student meet regularly on a schedule that works for both of them for a time of support, care, and fellowship. 


Contact us to help get connected with a mentor. 

To learn more about how Mentoring will work in the fall, watch our intro video

 

Leadership Training

Here for You

We know an important part of being a student is leadership training and development opportunities. We are working to develop leadership programs for out students, which includes leading a small group or prayer, preparing a discussion night, or recording a video for our Spiritual Discipline. 

To learn more about how our leadership training will work this fall, watch our intro video.

Other leadership chances include inviting students to participate/attend the Leadership Studio in Muskoka Woods (when Leadership weekends are offered) as well as helping connect students to a local congregation where they may have leadership opportunities.
