A student's experience at Grand Canyon University not only provides them with the business tools to succeed professionally, but also with the opportunity to learn how to lead others and have ministry impact in their chosen field. Through a variety of ministries, students can learn how to lead in a way that reflects the love of Jesus as they engage in training, mentoring and service opportunities.

Life Groups

Life Groups are small grouLife Groupsps that occur on a weekly basis at various times and locations throughout the campus. Life Groups are Bible studies led by student leaders called Life Leaders. These student leaders provide discipleship for individuals who desire personal accountability through a closer study of God's Word.
