Spiritual Life at Rickard
There is a collaborative effort by the Resident Director (RD), Resident Assistants (RAs), and other leaders in the halls to lead residents in spiritual growth and maturity. The RD meets with students throughout the week, but focuses a lot of time investing in the RAs to better equip, encourage, and challenge them to pour into the lives of the residents in their halls. The Resident Assistants do this by spending time building intentional relationships and encouraging spiritual growth through events such as hall bible studies, prayer meetings, planning community events, but also through one-on-one discipleship and mentoring.
