As one of the newest organizations on campus, Delight Ministries is open to all college women who are hoping to grow or strengthen their faith. NSU’s chapter is one of over 100 chapters in the United States. Delight’s mission statement, according to their official website, is “to invite college women into a Christ-centered community that fosters vulnerability and transforms stories.”
NSU Delight President Hannah Farley, a sophomore finance and marketing double major, explained that Delight is a women’s bible study group based on sisterhood. The Delight community is focused on serving, learning and doing life together, all while growing their relationship with God.
“I describe it as similar to a sorority, but focused on Christ and studying the bible,” Farley said. “It’s a welcoming community for girls who want to foster their relationship with God and find friends who have the same ideas and beliefs that they do.”
Farley came up with the idea to bring the organization to NSU’s campus after seeing an Instagram post from Delight.
“Last year I was a freshman, and I hadn’t really heard of many Christian clubs on campus, especially not women-focused ones. I found out about Delight on Instagram and I thought it would be cool to bring it here,” said Farley.
Farley looks forward to Delight becoming a strong community of women who want to help NSU. She hopes that, in time, Delight will become a well-known organization on campus.
For those interested, Delight will be hosting a kickoff party on Oct. 18 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in Commons 123. The kickoff party is a great way to get to know more about Delight Ministries and what their plans are for the year. Snacks and beverages, such as cotton candy and pink lemonade, will be provided.
“Basically, the kickoff party is just going to be an introduction to Delight, who we are, what we’re going to do and just a little social get together to get to know everyone,” said Farley.
Delight will also be holding weekly Bible studies on Wednesdays from 5 to 6 p.m.
“Any [woman] who is interested, thinks they might be interested or isn’t really sure, should either come find me or one of our leadership members, come to our kickoff party or email us,” said Farley.
