To lead a study, you need to have a heart for people and at least be slightly organized. The Office of Spiritual Life will provide resources, training, and support to students interested in leading a Bible study.
Can an Ethos event take place off campus?
Yes. Each approved Ethos event that takes place off campus is worth one kudos. If attendees are unable to use the "check-in" feature on the Ethos app for the off-campus event, the organizer of the event will record attendance.
Can a mission trip count for Ethos?
Yes. Students attending missions trips that last more than one day will get one kudos per day of mission work
Missions trips not sponsored by OC
If the trip meets the Ethos requirements, then it doesn't necessarily have to be a school-sponsored trip. The Office of Spiritual Life will have an Ethos Approval Committee that will approve events hosted by outside groups and organizations.
Who is eligible to lead a Servanthood project? Does each event need a sponsor?
Any student, faculty, or staff member can lead a project. The approval committee may require a faculty or staff sponsor and will contact you if that is the case.
