Thrive Spiritually

Explore, Deepen, and Apply Your Faith

Spiritual Development is a vital part of each student’s education. To complement Christ-centered teaching in the the classroom, Campus Ministries has designed an intentional menu of experiences, resources and training environments to equip our students to know and follow Jesus through weekly chapel services, small groups and local/global outreach.

It is our passion and privilege to help each student explore, deepen and apply their faith for the glory of God and the good of the world. Embrace your God-given identity and calling at Jessup.

Creative Arts

Music | Theatre | Visual Arts | Arts Management

Jessup’s Art programs offer the student artist opportunities to tour with full orchestra and vocal choir, showcase visual arts in a judged gallery, or join the cast and crew of full-scale stage productions that have been called “the most irresistible experience with live theatre from Tahoe to San Francisco.”

The ultimate goal of the program is to produce highly employable, Christian leaders and entrepreneurs capable of vast, positive influence within the areas of the arts, entertainment, and media. Visit William Jessup University and experience this innovative multi-disciplinary approach to artistry.
