Prayer Group

In the summer of 2017, as Andrews University students finalized plans for the school year, a few parents began to interact for a very important purpose—praying for their children’s experience at Andrews.

Now a community of Andrews parents and guardians participates in a prayer call the first Sunday of each month at 12 p.m. EST. Ten minutes are spent on welcome and announcements, and ten minutes are devoted to sharing prayer requests. The last ten minutes are spent in prayer for students, families and the University. Text message reminders also present names of specific students who are on the daily prayer list.

All parents and guardians of Andrews students are invited to join—call 563-999-2090, and use access code 553890 (international numbers are also available to dial in).
