Since 1971, Liberty University has had one mission — Training Champions for Christ.

It’s what drives everything we do.

It’s how we work to build a better world.

If faith is important to you, chances are you’ve spent years planting seeds of faith in your child. Their spiritual development matters to you — a lot.

When you’re on Liberty’s campus, you’ll find a group of people who serve one another with grace and strive to cultivate a culture that is Christ-like and community-focused.

As a Christ-centered community, we prioritize the spiritual health of our students. It’s part of our commitment to carrying on the work you began.

We provide resources and relationships to help your child grow in their faith as well as a safe environment for them to solidify what they believe.

So your student can go out and build a better world — as a Champion for Christ.

Liberty Worship Collective


The Liberty Worship Collective is a team of student worship leaders who regularly invite the student body into times of praise during Convocation and Campus Community.

Liberty provides ample opportunities for students to grow spiritually through worship and discipleship.

Where will your son or daughter find spiritual input at LU?

Classroom | All courses are taught from a biblical worldview by professors who are committed to their faith and to mentoring their students.

Dorm | Our 5:1 ratio of students to peer leaders on every hall means that your son or daughter will be living everyday life with people who choose to build Gospel-centered community and live on mission with Jesus.

Sports Team | Coaches, assistant coaches, strength
coaches — they understand the most important training their student-athletes receive is as a Champion for Christ, and their personal investment in their teams show it.

CSER (Community Service) | Serving one another is not only something God asks us to do — it’s something that’s good for you. Your child’s life will be enriched by the many opportunities they’re given to serve others.

Convocation | Though our guest speakers come from a variety of personal and professional backgrounds, every Convocation begins with a time of worship.

Campus Community | Liberty’s weekly “church” service on Wednesday evenings is a time of refreshment, encouragement, and Bible-focused teaching. 

Friends | While no community is perfect, the overall culture at Liberty is positive and encouraging, filled with people who want to inspire one another and be part of something greater than themselves.

Phone | The Liberty Today mobile app offers a wealth of useful information about what’s going on around campus — and it’s where your son or daughter can request prayer from our team of 24/7 prayer warriors.

The Liberty Worship Collective leads worship during Convocation and Campus Community

“After this weekend, I can tell you that Liberty is a unique and wonderful place! We attended a class in Family and Child Development with Dr. Ritchie, and she spent 15 out of a 50-minute class reading and discussing John 15, and then she prayed. Wow. I’ve never been to a school that so clearly integrates faith and learning.”

– Elizabeth M., Prospective LU Mom
