Chaplaincy ministries exist out of our mission as a Christ-centered community in the art of becoming disciples of Jesus. As a Christian University community within the Wesleyan tradition, we intentionally seek to invest in the lives of each other. We intentionally provide holistic opportunities and space for the spiritual formation as individuals and for the spiritual maturation as a community of faith. Our desire is to grow together and help one another toward spiritual maturity in Christ while preparing for integration in the larger communities.
PLNU believes in healthy transformational growth and desires for our life-together to be Christ-centered. We prayerfully move forward humbly in God’s grace to love and serve in Christ’s name, while being a people inhabited by His Spirit.
