Love Thy Neighbor

June 1, 2017

More than 950,000 hours*. That’s how much time Liberty University students spend each year in community service throughout the City of Lynchburg, the state, the country, and the world.

Serving others is one of Liberty’s longest-standing traditions. Since its founding, the university has been committed to preparing students not only for careers, but also for lives of meaningful service to God and to others. Through multiple opportunities each semester, students cultivate their sense of social responsibility and are spurred on by their Christian faith to bless those in need.

While students are required to complete a minimum of 20 hours of community service each semester, many go above and beyond that number by participating in programs offered through the Office of Spiritual Development and various academic departments. They join ministries, help nonprofits, and even create their own initiatives to meet needs in their community.

In this issue, you will read about some of the many projects through which students display selfless service as they strive to follow in the footsteps of Jesus and obey His greatest commandment: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
