DIU strives to prepare our students spiritually for leadership through strong, mature community.
One way we do this is through our Prayer Partner program. This is a longstanding tradition that matches students with a DIU faculty/staff member or volunteer. Students meet with this prayer partner regularly to pray, weep, and rejoice together. Prayer partners often become one of a student’s most treasured relationships at DIU.
One student, Rachel, has met weekly with her prayer partner for five semesters and counting. “My prayer partner has been a lifeline for me in a transition-filled time of life,” Rachel attests. “God has shown his committed love for me through her faithfulness. There is such sweetness and power in approaching God with someone who has already walked all over the world with him,” she says. “I’ll keep tapping into that gift as long as the Lord allows.”
