Partners in Ministry

Pepperdine University Center for Faith and Learning

The Center for Faith and Learning seeks to enhance the connections between classroom teaching, scholarship, and Christian faith and practice. Click here for information about the integration of faith and learning in Christian higher education.


Convocation invites Pepperdine to come into contact with and explore Christian community by fulfilling our founder's vision as it endeavors to present, through teaching and example, the diverse manifestations of Christian life. Our theme for Convocation this year is "Illuminate". In John 8:12 Christ declared himself to be the Light of the World and promises to those who follow him that they will have the light of life. We invite you to come explore how the love and truth of Christ illuminate dark places in our lives and in our world, revealing peace and joy that can be found in Him.

Convocation seeks to curate spaces, methods, conversations and attitudes of Christian worship which cultivate continued growth through spiritually formative opportunities: guided one on one mentoring with a faculty or staff member, small group learning experiences, and engaging chapel events. Additionally, participating students will receive convo credit through these opportunities which contributes to their Seaver 200 grade.

For more information please visit our website at community.pepperdine.edu/seaver/convo or drop by our office located at TCC 104, just inside Waves Café.

Student-Led Ministries

The Student-Led Ministry Program aims train, equip, and support students committed to taking leadership roles in the spiritual growth of their peers. Our Student-Led Ministry Program aspires to facilitate spaces for God to be glorified and seek to do so by equipping student leaders to foster spaces of worship and spiritual formation. From instrumental worship and preaching, to apologetics and Bible studies, we hope you will find a way to serve and connect with God through Student-Led Ministries.

Spiritual Life Advisors

The Spiritual Life Advisor program is a peer-ministry that is supported by Community Living and is led by a Resident Director. The general responsibility of the SLA is to serve as the chaplain or "spiritual shepherd" to students in the on-campus residential facilities by fostering an atmosphere that encourages spiritual growth through encouragement, support, and accountability.
