Spiritual Life Week: Are You Saved?


Are you saved? For what?

Shaun Groves, a singer and songwriter, will look to answer those questions and share songs and stories from his interaction with people from around the world during Spiritual Life Week, Feb. 13-17.

“Shaun Groves brings an evangelical voice to the call to live the Gospel in our present day,” said Brian Martin Burkholder, campus pastor. “He has a passion for the poor and, in particular, for children living in poverty… He will inspire and challenge us through song and story.”

In addition to praise and worship, Groves will perform songs from his new album, “Third World Symphony.” Groves won the ASCAP Christian Songwriter of the Year award and has been nominated for seven Dove awards including Best New Artist and Songwriter of the Year.
