Who We Are

Radiant exists for the purpose of cultivating spiritual formation within the hearts of women. We equip women by providing theologically rich resources and opportunities to serve and study Scripture. Radiant women look to Him in all areas of life and are transformed into the image of Christ.

As a continuing education program at Heritage Christian University, Radiant encourages women’s spiritual growth through many outlets. Radiant is a subset of HCU’s Academic department, with two coordinators and a team of women who guide the educational programming and content offered. Radiant serves local and broader communities.

What We Do

  • Classes offered both online and on HCU’s campus
  • Workshops and forums
  • Scripture studying and writing plans

…and more!

Upcoming Events

October 5, 12, 19, and 26: Theology 101: Ordinary Things, Holy Purpose
Join our ladies’ class every Thursday night at 6 PM during October. All ladies are encouraged to attend. The Fall class is offered online via Zoom and on campus at no charge to you. Register here.

Theology 101 explores selected topics in theology, with each class series revolving around a central theme. Join us this fall as we explore Ordinary Things with a Holy Purpose. We will look at how rocks, bread, fire, and water appear throughout the Scriptures and what they signify spiritually.


November 14: Mental Health Forum: Managing Stress & Anxiety
What do you do when it all becomes too much? Radiant will be hosting a Mental Health Forum on Managing Stress and Anxiety on Tuesday, November 14th, from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm.

The goal of the forum is to address two questions:
1) What can Christians do when we struggle with mental health issues?
2) What can we, as non-professionals, do to help others?

The forum will feature the recorded stories of women who live with stress and anxiety and their advice. It will also feature a live panel of practitioners, who will talk about best practices and respond to questions in a moderated format. This event is offered ON CAMPUS ONLY but will be recorded and posted at a later time for viewing. It is available at no charge to you but does require registration. Register here.


February 3, 2024: Thought Garden: Ladies’ Spiritual Workshop with Laura Jenkins
Your mind can be both your toughest battleground and your strongest asset. Prepare to have your thinking challenged at this year’s Radiant Ladies’ Workshop, “Cultivate,” on Saturday, February 3, 2024. Author, speaker, and certified counselor Laura Jenkins compares the mind to a garden. How you tend your garden determines what grows there. Laura will explain the power of positive mental processes and will equip us with healthier skills for a fuller, more Christ-centered life. Tickets go on sale on September 1, 2023.


The Radiant Study Series is officially here!

In Christ Alone: A Look at Blessings in Ephesians 1 is the inaugural volume in the Radiant Study Series. The Radiant Study Series flows from a desire to provide quality biblical resources to Christian women. Written by women and for women, it features authors associated with Heritage Christian University. While somewhat patterned after the Berean Study Series, the Radiant series will also include prayer prompts, journal prompts, Scripture-writing prompts, and Bible-marking guides for each topic.
In Christ Alone is a detailed study of Ephesians 1 written by ladies for ladies. The thirteen chapters are supplemented by study aids and activities designed to maximize both understanding and application. In Christ Alone offers a practical, fresh look at a familiar and impactful text.
