Chaplain and Church Relations


Our chaplain ministers seek to nurture students, faculty and staff in an understanding of life as vocation grounded in faith, infused with a concern for human beings, and committed to the service of God and the human family.

Experiences of learning, service, worship, community building, and growth encourage members of the College community to imagine and pursue visions for their lives that reflect this sense of vocation.

The ministry of the chaplain ministers are designed to empower individuals to bring compassion, justice, reconciliation, and hope to the communities where they live and work.
