The Office of Spiritual Life exists to build relationships with students and to create engaging opportunities through small group interactions, meaningful worship services, mentoring, and missions experiences both locally and internationally. Our goal is to help students deepen their faith and engage in Christian community, leading to a lifetime of walking with Christ.

Freshman Retreat


The annual Freshman Retreat is coming August 30-31. There is no better way to kick start your Samford experience! Join hundreds of your peers for this weekend retreat where you will meet some of our sharpest upperclassmen who will serve as small group leaders to help you adjust to campus life. We will have fun together as we focus on relationship building and faith development through worship and small group interactions. You will have time to meet new friends and hang out, enjoying the lake activities, spike ball, basketball, beach volleyball, hiking, canoeing, ultimate frisbee, corn hole, gaga ball, 9-square or just chilling by the pool. Registration includes lodging, meals, transportation and free time activities.
