Spiritual life at Wheaton is a full immersion experience. Learning to love Jesus Christ and His Kingdom happens everywhere from your dorm discipleship small groups to your early morning science lab and from the sports field to chapel.
7 Loves of the Ordinary Life
Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul! I will praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. (Psalm 146:1-2)
Love the Life of Prayer
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. (Matthew 7:7-8)
Love the Scriptures
Let the word of Christ dwell in your richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. (Colossians 3:16)
Love Life Together
Let brotherly love continue. (Hebrews 13:1)
Love Living Life beyond Myself
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace. (1 Peter 4:10)
Love a Life of Generosity
Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you. (Matthew 5:42)
Love to Rest and Celebrate
He said to them, "This is what the LORD has commanded: 'Tomorrow is a day of solemn rest, a holy Sabbath to the LORD; bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and all that is left over lay aside to be kept till the morning.'" (Exodus 16:23)
The most visible part of the work of the Chaplain's office involves the development and implementation of a Chapel program that works at building community, enabling worship, and fostering Christlikeness. Three times a week, students enter the worship environment of Edman Chapel to experience a needed respite from the busyness of campus life. By mere attendance in Chapel students contribute to a sense of corporate community, and in participatory worship students encourage the faith development of their peers. As an experience shared by the entire community, Chapel stimulates campus-wide discussion of current issues and ideas. View the Chapel Schedule.
