Small Group Ministries


An essential part of Spiritual Formation on campus comes through student-led small groups.  Each semester there are ten to twelve small groups that vary in size from eight to forty students, which meet on different nights of the week.  

While each group meeting consists of sharing, encouragement and prayer, the content of their Bible study can vary from using media, to focusing on specific books, or discussing relevant hot button issues for Christians. An asset to these small groups is that an overseer mentors the leaders.  

Attendance is optional, but chapel credit can be earned by attending a small group.

Tony Soewignjo is a bivocational pastor, currently married to a wonderful wife Mary, and blessed with three beautiful kids: Chloe 17, Benjamin 13, and Cherine 8.  He is originally from Indonesia and came to the U.S. in 1989 as a college student, during which he experienced God’s encounter.  He earned his college degree in California and worked as a software engineer for about 6 years.  In 1997 he entered into a pastoral ministry and became an associate pastor of an Indonesian church in the Bay Area.  In 2001 he received God’s calling to move to New York to start a new church in Queens.  To further equip his pastoral calling, he decided to enroll in the M.Div program at Alliance Theological Seminary in 2013 with a concentration in Church Development. His greatest desire is to see the move of God in the city where he was called, New York City.  If you wish to speak with Tony about leading a small group, you can contact him at
