Our desire is to connect Samford students through small groups that lead to spiritual growth and biblical community. Two primary ways students are able to get involved are through Samford Small Groups and Cadres.

Samford Small Groups

Samford Small Groups exist on Samford’s campus as a way to connect and unite students through worship, bible study, discussion, and prayer. Small Groups take place on Wednesday nights following Samford United. Students meet together to discuss the weekly message and spend time in prayer. Simply show up on Wednesday nights in Reid Chapel at 7:30 p.m. to get plugged in!


Campus Cadres

Campus cadres are designed to promote engaging conversation that challenges you to grow spiritually and connect with a small circle of peers.

Cadres are small groups led by faculty or staff that meet approximately 8 times during a semester to discuss a book, biblical text, specified topic. Up to 8 convocation credits are given to those who complete the requirements.

Community Cadres

Community cadres seek to help students integrate faith and learning through action and service. These cadres engage students with community partners in the greater Birmingham community in meaningful ways. Students can receive anywhere from 10-15 convocation credits per semester. Visit the Mann Center webpage for more information.
