Near 48

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." James 4:8

NEAR 48 is a residence hall-based discipleship/spiritual formational ministry that is designed to engage students in on-campus community. This is accomplished through our Spiritual Life Assistants.

Spiritual Life Assistants (SLAs), are assigned to each floor of the freshman residence halls.  Their job is to help the new students draw near to God through building relationships on their floor, helping foster intentional Christian community in that space, leading a weekly small group, and connecting those in need to pastoral care.  Near 48 is a partnership between Residence Life and University Ministries and is a great way to get plugged into the spiritual life on Belmont's campus.

If you have specific questions about Near 48, or about spiritual formation programs at Belmont, contact Associate University Minister, Christy Ridings
