More than Talk
Experience Jesus with Us
Jesus didn't abandon us when he physically left the earth. He provided new opportunities when he sent his Holy Spirit to initiate a new, dynamic, and intimate relationship with us. Taking hold of this unique opportunity brings transformation, growth, and strength.
To that end, we offer our Weekly Spiritual Life Workshops. These are times of learning and ministering together as we interact with each other, Jesus' teaching, and the Holy Spirit rather than merely another set of lectures. Our relational Bible studies, called Cores, allow us to take that growth and support of each other a step farther.
Above The Haze represents our desire to let Jesus lead us above the haze and confusion prevalent today to find clarity, security, and love in his truth, wisdom, and alternate way of life.
We are a Great Commission group following Jesus' command to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19, 20
The Only Thing that Counts is Faith Expressing Itself through Love

Spiritual Life Workshops
Wed Nights 7:00 in CAS 228
Our Spiritual Life Workshops are open to everyone on campus. God is present and ready to interact with us, so we give him our attention as we seek to understand his values and commands together. We'll interact in many ways during a workshop, including discussions, prayer, worship, short presentations, planning, and more. We would love to get to know you whether you have been a believer for years, consider yourself just curious, or are actively seeking.
Relational Bible Studies (Cores)
Cores are made up of men and women committed to each other's growth. These are opportunities for encouragement and support as we study the Bible together to gain God's guidance in our personal life and public service.
Cores meet throughout the week. Contact us through the form below to get more information.
ABOVE THE HAZE IS...
Above The Haze is a Boston University Christian student organization focused on growth, community, service, and leadership development. We are part of Chi Alpha Campus Ministry, an international student movement.
We believe personal engagement is an important part of campus life and an essential part of the Christian life. We have a chance to live our lives with Jesus rather than just learn about him. Our lives are transformed, love is expressed, and justice grows when we actively engage with Jesus, Scripture, people, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus' mission.
For millennia lives, cultures, and civilizations have been transformed through God's communication in the form of the Bible. Together, we learn to understand and apply the teaching it holds.
The Holy Spirit
We worship and follow a God who is always close. The Bible describes one God who is also three persons. Jesus did not leave us alone when he physically left the earth. He gave us a new and dynamic relationship by giving us his Holy Spirit as a guide, healer, teacher, and equipper. Jesus brings us comfort and strength through him while allowing us to aid him in bringing healing to those around us. The work of the Holy Spirit is necessary for what Jesus described as a normal Christian life.
God did not intend us to follow him alone. God binds us together as a source of encouragement and strength. Jesus taught about love more than any other topic, and love is not a solo act. It is through community that we learn and grow in our love, acceptance, and forgiveness, reflecting the character of Jesus.
Jesus calls us to believe in him, put our trust in him, and appy his teaching. The Bible calls this being a disciple. Jesus challenges all of us to become his disciples. Our response is to follow Jesus together just as he modeled with his first disciples. Together we aim to be transformed by Jesus as we learn about the new life he offers us.
