If you are looking for a way to exercise your faith and connect with the community, you’ve landed on the right page! Community Involvement exists to encourage students to embrace Christ's call to "be a neighbor" through training, experience, and reflection within the paradigm of community development. We want to help students embody a lifestyle of relational evangelism and activism, with the ultimate purpose of engaging the kingdom of God locally and globally.
Loving God by loving people is core to the ministry of Community Involvement. We seek to embody Christ's love to the communities surrounding Samford, which consequently shapes us into the disciples we were called to be. Throughout the year, we particularly root ourselves in the communities of East Lake and College Hills by hosting various volunteer opportunities for students, and fun events for the community such as Farmer's Markets, tutoring and mentoring, and community dinners.
