Student Senate

Calvary University has existed since 1932 and has an immensely rich heritage of training men and women “to live and serve in the church and the world according to the biblical worldview.” We in student senate are committed to that same mission and exist to serve the CU student body in Kansas City and in Fort Morgan. We do this by providing opportunities, direction, and resources for the overarching purpose of aiding in the spiritual growth of student life. As members of the Student Senate of Calvary University, we are dedicated to serving the student body by providing opportunities, direction, and resources for the overarching purpose of aiding in the spiritual growth of student life. One of the significant functions of the Student Senate is to represent the student body before campus administration.  We work with campus faculty and staff to improve the quality of student life, make recommendations on policies, and help plan events.

International Club

International students, faculty, staff, MKs, and anyone else interested in building cross-cultural relationships are welcome to join the International Club. Enjoy activities, meals, games, outreach and friendships with fellow believers. For more information email tim.hange@cavlary.edu 

Missions Committee

  

The various missions awareness activities held throughout the school year can only be maintained over the long-term by maintaining a recognized organizational structure that creates continuity and authority. The Missions Committee provided needed structure and yet allows for the creativity and ingenuity that has long characterized this group of students. To learn how to get involved email josh.paxton@calvary.edu 

Theatre

At Calvary, we want to teach you how to tell a great story dramatically, we want to involve you in telling a great story with your life! You do not have to be a theater major to get involved. A great story has a character at its center who wants something so badly, he overcomes great obstacles to get it. Sound familiar? Sound like the Story of Jesus through the ages? Sound like your story? bobbie.jeffery@calvary.edu / kaleb.krahn@calvary.edu 

Coffee & Jesus


Interested in a women’s group devoted to learning about the Creator? Dive into God’s Word with various speakers brought in throughout the school year. This group meets every other Saturday morning. All women are welcome to come and connect with other women passionate about Jesus and the blessing of coffee. https:/ /www.instagram.com/calvarystudentlife/  

Haystack

  

 

Haystack is a time for current Calvary students/staff/faculty to gather and pray for our alumni missionaries serving God around the world. We gather to hear stories and read newsletters, pray, worship and frequently hear from guests about what is currently going on in their ministries both here and abroad. josh.paxton@calvary.edu 

Chorale

The Music Department provides quality training and ministry opportunities for students desiring to serve through music. Students of all majors are involved in music learning and ministry through private lessons, music courses, concerts, musicals, chapel music, Masterworks Chorus, and music groups during the school year and in the summer.

Section 21

Beginning with the Semester of 2017, some students sought opportunities to get out into the community and meet people. They started with simple Nerf events and expanded into their own organization. Join Section 21 to experience community, entertainment, and outreach at https://www.cusection21.com/about-us

 

 

 

Hall Devotions

At Calvary we strive to keep God’s Word at the center of our lives. One way Student Development encourages that is by having weekly devotions lead by the hall RDLs (Student Resident Life Directors). For off-campus student desiring to get involved email student.deans@calvary.edu about getting adopted by a hall.

Contenders

 

Founded on the passages of Jude, Contenders is a time for current Calvary students/staff/faculty to gather and learn to contend for the faith. Similar to Coffee & Jesus, speakers come in to teach what it means to be a contender for the faith. In an age where error runs rampant, Jude’s burden to proclaim God’s truth and defend it must be carried on. www.instagram.com/calvarystudentlife/
