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.
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.
Wheaton College is a school of 'loves'. Through worship, prayer, scripture engagement, and pastoral conversations, the Office of the Chaplain hopes to cultivate these 7 loves.
The most visible part of the work of the Chaplain's office involves the development and implementation of the Chapel program, which aims to build community, enable worship, and foster 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. Check out the Chapel schedule for Fall 2018 to see the speakers and scriptures that students are engaging with this semester.
