What is Spiritual Formation?
“SPIRITUAL FORMATION IS INTEGRAL TO CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION – IT IS THE BIBLICALLY-GUIDED PROCESS IN WHICH PEOPLE ARE BEING TRANSFORMED INTO THE LIKENESS OF CHRIST BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN THE FAITH COMMUNITY IN ORDER TO LOVE AND SERVE GOD AND OTHERS.”

What does it look like to grow in your faith as a student at Malone?
At Malone, all faculty and staff members are dedicated to the spiritual well-being of students, but it is the primary focus of one office in particular: the Office of Spiritual Formation.
The Spiritual Formation staff members work to create a campus culture of Christian faith that encourages each student to grow in his/her relationship with God, develop a worldview rooted in scripture, and care for and about all humankind.
“Malone has taught me so much about my faith, building community, my major, and how to see God's light in everything. This place is so accepting of everyone that comes to visit, teach, work, or to get an education. I will cherish all I have learned from my friends and my professors for the rest of my life.”
“You can truly know that God loves you unconditionally and what it means to accept who you are.”
“God thinks you're dope.”
“God uses broken people.”
“Be justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God.”
