Community: What I Learned at Greenville College

Community: What I Learned at Greenville College

“Community. At Greenville College, I learned that Christianity must be lived out in community. Community is where dialogue happens. Community is where learning happens.” When asked to describe her experience at Greenville College, Hannah Groves ’13 references community.

Groves, who studied Urban and Cross Cultural Ministries with a minor in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and received the 2013 President’s Citation, is featured in a recent video (above) about lessons learned about community through her experience at GC. 

Greenville College students, like Hannah, engage in the togetherness that happens through interactions between faculty, staff and fellow students: sharing meals together, learning together, engaging in meaningful conversations together, celebrating victories and mourning losses together and pursuing lives of faith together. Through these interactions, students learn by example and experience how to earnestly and honestly pursue Christ in their daily lives.

“The greatest thing about my time at Greenville College has instilled in me is a passion to love God and to love people. I’m leaving Greenville College more aware of my purpose and meaning and more in love with the Lord Jesus Christ. GC is a wonderful place. A wonderful community that is truly transforming lives for the Kingdom.” 

Hannah currently serves as a program assistant with the Uganda Studies Program at Uganda Christian University in Mukono, Uganda where she carries the lessons she’s learned about faith and community at GC to a new and exciting chapter of life.
