The faith-filled community at SWU is comprised of students, faculty and staff who are passionate about learning and growing, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Faith-filled Community


We believe we have been called to create a community that is more than faithful, but rather, faith-filled. The evidence of this overflowing process will be demonstrated by our members being active in community service, by our emphasis on transforming experiences, by our passion to develop leaders and by our deep conviction to reach out to others in love to bring them into a personal relationship with Christ.

At the center of Southern Wesleyan University is an unwavering dedication to Jesus Christ and the relentless pursuit of His Kingdom and work in our communities, our world, and us. At SWU, students have the opportunity to grow in their faith through worship and learning experiences. You can also put your faith into action through various local serving opportunities, global cross-cultural trips, or traveling summer ministry teams. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, there are opportunities for you to grow at Southern Wesleyan. It's really all about helping you find God's purpose for your life, preparing you for that purpose, and sending you out to impact the world.



"You [Christian colleges] have what everybody else is desperate to have: a way of talking about and educating the human person in a way that integrates faith, emotion and intellect. ... Almost no other set of institutions in American society has that, and everyone wants it."
— David Brooks, New York Times columnist and author of the best-selling book The Road to Character
