Here at Wheaton College, we believe that spiritual formation is foundational to the student experience. Wheaton has a legacy of faculty, coaches, residence life leaders, chaplains, and staff who exemplify spiritual journeys grounded in the truth and grace of the gospel. This is integral to our Christ-centered liberal arts education and our evangelical witness. The Chaplain’s Office is a central part of this formation and champions life with God together through small groups, corporate worship, and other types of spiritual care.
The Wheaton College Office of the Chaplain exists to cultivate an environment in which faculty, staff, and students learn to love Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.
Our vision is to serve Jesus Christ and advance His Kingdom through excellence in worship arts and discipleship ministries.

Life with God Together (LWGT)
Life with God Together is a spiritual formation initiative that endeavors to inspire students, faculty, and staff to grow a spiritually vibrant, Christ-like evangelical witness. This framework, championed by the Chaplain's Office, is designed to invite the entire Wheaton community into a shared rule of life, creating space for us to be formed in our love for God, love for the Church, and love for the world through the nine spiritual disciplines found in the diagram above.
