In Greek, Kaleo means “to call” with 2 Timothy 1:9 being our focal verse. “He has saved us and called us to a holy life-not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.” We are excited to learn together how to live like Christ and share with others in learning to do the same.
The goal of Kaleo discipleship is to give students, faculty, and staff Christian spiritual direction and support in answering their individual academic, social and professional call. Through Kaleo we want to be intentional in focusing on spiritual growth and leadership development for our students, faculty and staff. We are praying for our HBU community to recognize through discipleship the need for rededication and renewal to take place in our lives. Through personal and small group discipleship, we look forward to hearing personal stories told inside and outside the classroom with the hope that this growth will be lived and shared by reflecting God’s faithfulness and goodness in our lives.
We are blessed with a wonderful group of faculty and staff who feel called to engage in opportunities for spiritual formation with our students and among their colleagues. Many spend their personal time outside of class and university responsibilities meeting one on one and/or in small groups with students where they grow and “do life” together in the context of discipleship.
