RESIDENCE LIFE: DOING LIFE TOGETHER
Students enrolling in the RESIDENTIAL LEARNING PROGRAM in Bedford, Texas will experience a unique faith community during their time at Messenger College. The value of living in community cannot be overestimated. Ask an MC graduate about their college residential experience, and you will hear stories of friendship and life lessons gained through this important part of college life.
New students transferring into the MC Residential Learning Program from a local college or other large state university share they find a warm, safe, hospitable, and welcoming community, where they are challenged academically and immersed in a Spirit empowered life with other believers. New students entering Messenger College as first time college students find opportunity within this residential life setting to make a healthy transition from high school years into young adulthood.
In addition to time spent in the classroom, students engage in campus ministries, student activites and recreation, as well as small group opportunities within the residential community. Students are also actively involved in local church ministries throughout the DFW Metroplex.
We believe that when students experience authentic community of loving one another and bearing one another’s burden, lives are transformed. Our hope is that students learn more about themselves, value the differences of others in the community, grow spiritually, and catch the vision for living the rest of their lives in authentic community.
