Spiritual Life Week
One week each semester is set aside for a special time of focusing on the Christian life. Students play a major role in planning activities that help strengthen growth and faithfulness in our relationship with God. The week includes guest speakers and special times of worship.
Spiritual life week Fall 2013: November 10-16, 2013
This fall's theme is "Be Transformed, Not Conformed", and we will focus specifically on being "transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Romans 12:2). I believe this topic is a timely one on a college campus, where our minds are receiving so much information and being challenged in new ways.

Speaker: Justin Romine
Justin and his wife, Kristin, along with their 2 children Hannah (2) and Samuel (6 months) currently live in Keystone, South Dakota. Justin has been a part of the Keystone Project staff since April 2012.
After serving at a local church in Ohio for 3 years, he followed God's call to become the director of the Keystone Project Summer Internship. This internship focuses on equipping college-aged students with the vision and mission to multiply disciples in the context that God has placed them. They receive hands-on training as they work with the several different nationalities of college students that come to Keystone to work in the summer. He graduated from Bethel College in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in youth ministry and adolescent studies, and is currently working on a master's of ministry degree.
