HPU Intentional Christian Living Community application
The HPU Intentional Christian Living Community (ICLC) is a program of High Point University, providing participants a context to experience living in Christian community. Participants live in a house under a covenant to share life together, engage in practices of Christian devotion and service, and learn from the experiences of other Christian intentional living communities. HPU is partnering with the Missional Wisdom Foundation (https://www.missionalwisdom.com/) to network with other intentional living communities and provide spiritual development resources. The HPU ICLC is overseen by a Board of Directors made up of HPU faculty and staff, who will ensure professional oversight and spiritual guidance. The HPU ICLC is open to 6 participants for a male house and 6 participants for a female house. The HPU ICLC adheres to the HPU non-discrimination policy.

How did you hear about the HPU ICLC?
HPU ICLC participants must agree to the following terms.1. Commit to living in the community for the entire academic year. In the event that a participant feels strongly compelled to transition out of the community during the academic year, they must do so according to procedures given by the Board of Directors. Also, if other members of the community feel strongly that a participant should transition out, that issue will also be dealt with according to procedures given by the Board of Directors. These procedures will be designed to foster healthy communal discernment. 2. Be respectful of the covenant and daily rhythms of the house and commit to being an active part of continuing to shape and uphold the covenant. 3. Contribute equitably to any house-wide expenses, such as groceries for shared meals. Do you agree to those terms? *
Essay (aim for the equivalent of about one double-spaced page of text): The selected participants in HPU ICLC will construct, with guidance from the Board of Directors, a covenant to guide their life together. That covenant is not meant to be a strict rule to be enforced, but a vision to orient the house and help participants know what to strive for in their life together. Read over the couple of sample covenants (on the HPU Pre-Ministry website under 'Campus Involvement'), and write an essay discussing the following: a.What element of the sample covenants most interests you and why? b.What element of the sample covenants sounds to you most difficult and why, and how would you strive for that element if it were part of the community covenant? c.Why are you interested in communal Christian living and what do you hope to learn?
