We are a diverse group, coming together to work towards creating a strong Christ-centered atmosphere on the campus of Southwestern Adventist University.



Our Mission

The mission of the Office for Spiritual Life and Development is to develop responsible Christian leaders to serve on campus, and around the world. We do this by actively involving the Southwestern Adventist University family in the mission and ministry of the gospel.


The students who attend SWAU agree that the events, staff, counsel, encouragement, and love that come from the SLAD office are what makes the SWAU campus thrive.
