Big+Little Bruins

Much like big brother/sister programs, Big+Little Bruins pairs a George Fox student with a student from an elementary or middle school in the Newberg Public School District. Big Bruins meet and establish a relationship with Little Bruins to serve as a role model.

Generation Connections

Generation Connections is an eight-week, intentionally relational program that matches George Fox students with elderly neighbors. Within these pairings, both parties learn from and serve each other as they spend quality one-on-one time having fun, sharing their stories, and engaging in meaningful conversations.

Life Groups

Life Groups provide an outlet for undergraduate students to gather for a weekly time of discussion and prayer. Groups are all male, all female or coed, and are under the direction of leaders who are trained by our office.

Paid Internships

Each spiritual life internship is designed to help students engage in the dynamic intersection of applied classroom concepts, preparation for long-term work in their field, and collaborative interdisciplinary teamwork in a cross-cultural and ministry-minded workplace.

Saturday Service

Saturday Service is our regular off-campus opportunity to put our love of neighbor into practical action and, as a result, relationally link our students to our campus neighbors.
