Worship and Spiritual Life

We are called as Christians to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind. The Seminary seeks to nurture this love in the classroom, in chapel, in the library, and through individual devotions. Corporate worship is held daily at 11:15 a.m. during the August Residency, and Mondays at 11:00 a.m. during fall and spring semesters. The Seminary community gathers to hear the Scriptures publicly read and the Word proclaimed, sing praise to God, and join in prayer.

Students, faculty, and guests are invited to participate in leading worship for the community. Ms. Becky Shellabarger, Coordinator of Student Life, schedules worship leaders. Guest preachers are invited and scheduled only in consultation with the Dean of the Seminary. The community uses the rich liturgical resources of various Christian traditions throughout the year.
