Official LHU Club & History

Yes! FGF is an official LHU Club and has been a Campus Ministry since 1982. FGF operates in accordance with LHU Student Body Government guidelines. FGF does not receive any funds from LHU’s Student Body Government because our club is sponsored as an outreach ministry of the House of the Lord Fellowship church.

For over 35 years, FGF has encouraged college students not just spiritually but also supported students with their academic journey and life adventures. We are privileged to be part of the LHU community, LHU faith-based ministries, and FGF & LHU alumni communities.

What are Meetings Like?

  • What is an FGF meeting like? Meetings on Thursdays are informal, interactive Bible-based discussions along with a chance to connect with other college students and make some friendships that last a lifetime. FGF is about encouragement and encountering a deeper relationship with God at the Haven.
  • What if I don’t want to join in a discussion? You can choose to participate when it feels right for you.
  • What if I cannot make it on-time to a meeting? While everyone is encouraged to be consistent in attending, and we think you’ll want to come as often as you are able too. We know college schedules and life can be rather busy.
  • What if I can’t make it every week’s meeting? No problem! While everyone is encouraged to be consistent in attending, and we think you’ll want to, we know things come up.

What Else Do We Do?

Besides a weekly Thursday meeting with an interactive Bible-study, FGF has all sorts of fun adventures and opportunities to create and strengthen student’s friendships.

FGF group activities include: LHU Club Fairs, game nights, campfire cookouts, hiking explorations, ice cream parties and picnics, end of semester party-bashes, and even volunteer community service projects like: Operation Christmas Child and HOTLF mission projects and witnessing campaigns.
