UM Serve Day Builds Community, Proclaims the Gospel

Luke Killam Experience, Faith

My favorite event at this year’s Ram Rush in the first week of fall semester at the University of Mobile was UM Serve Day. I had already spent most of my week as any new freshman would – meeting and spending time with new friends. Once we all got accustomed to being on campus and being around each other, it …

Pursuing My Professional Calling to LOV

Morgan Carnley Alumni, Experience, Faith

When I began as a student in the School of Business at the University of Mobile, I knew I wanted to use my degree to impact the lives of others.

Why Philosophy?

Abbie George Maggio Faith, Sciences

Being a philosophy major at the University of Mobile gave me the tools necessary to fulfill a life-long calling in both ministry and in academia, for which I am forever grateful. And all of this started back in 2012. In the summer of 2012, my brother was born with an unexpected diagnosis. The genetic disorder took my entire family by surprise, …

Finding Your Church Home Away From Home

Noah Walters Experience, Faith

When I first moved on campus at the University of Mobile, I had no idea where I would attend church. My dad is a pastor, so I never had to look for a church before, because I always had one. So I had no idea where to begin. Fortunately for me and students at the University of Mobile, this school …

Worship at Cinque Terre in Italy

Scripture speaks of creation worshiping God – mountains, rocks, animals.

23 Hours and a Conversation Later

Amber Kelley Experience, Faith

While traveling internationally, it’s easy to get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of things that we forget there are people who are passing us, sitting next to us and even talking to us. If we are lucky, we open our eyes and see a soul, a person that God has called us to reach. University of Mobile …

Cloudy Day in Switzerland Sends Clear Message

Amber Kelley Experience, Faith

  Living on the Alabama coast, you get to see the beauty of God’s hand controlling gulf waters while the waves crash along the beach – but every once in a while, you get to travel across the big ocean and see God’s powerful, creating hand in places you never thought possible. University of Mobile graduating senior Josiah Pruett experienced …

International Travel Changed My Life

Amber Kelley Experience, Faith

International travel often changes who we are. It challenges us to consider new perspectives, helps us interact with those who are different from us, and leaves us with special memories of missed trains, delayed flights and new foods. That – and much more – happened during a Youth Hostel Missions trip to John Matheou, a senior majoring in worship leadership …

What I Learned From My Freshman Year

JoAnna Garrett Arts, Faith

Walking into my freshman year of college at the University of Mobile, I had no idea how it was going to turn out. I had certain expectations for how some of it would be, but for the most part, I was completely clueless. But, I knew God had a plan for me, and that was all that I needed. People …
