Spiritual Life

With students from 27 different denominations, 23 states and six countries, our campus is very diverse, Shaped by Mennonite values of respect, peacemaking and service, we believe there is great value when people of different backgrounds come together to create one community.

We seek to shape our worship and ministries in ways that are welcoming and meaningful to all students, regardless of their background.

Chapel service

CHAPEL SERVICES
Chapel services are held each Thursday at 11 a.m. in Yoder Recital Hall. While chapel attendance is not required, it is a privilege and a blessing to be able to worship together as a campus community. Our chapel services are planned by a team of students, faculty and staff, who involve a variety of people in carrying out the service including guest speakers and musical groups.

WORSHIP BAND
Students make up the worship band that leads music at chapel services and other worship events. The band is led by a local worship pastor and practices are held on Wednesday night. If you would like to sing or play in the worship band at chapel, please let us know by filling out the interest form below.

COMMUNITY CHURCHES
Students are also encouraged to get involved with a local church of their choice. A list of area churches is available through the campus ministries office or your hall chaplain.

FELLOWSHIP
Fellowship groups, service groups, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Bible studies and Spiritual Life Weeks are just a few of the opportunities offered through the spiritual life office.
