The experience of being a member of the Criswell College family begins on campus and continues for a lifetime. During your time as a student here, the focus and vision of the Student Life Office is to minister to your spiritual, emotional, relational, and academic needs in order to see you become all that God desires you to be! In essence, our purpose is to serve you "just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many" (Matthew 20:28, NIV). By God's grace and for His glory, service is at the heart of who we are and what we do.
Many programs and events are scheduled each semester to specifically nurture our students spiritually and to challenge them to higher levels of Christian maturity. Each semester brings various campus prayer groups and student led Bible study sessions, as well as ongoing Great Commission Chapels where students share ministry experiences, give their testimonies, and pray for one another.
