Spiritual Care

Spiritual Care

The Chaplain's Office is here to support you in your spiritual formation throughout your time at Wheaton and equip you for life after graduation.

One of the ways we hope to offer support is through providing spiritual care. You will find our five areas of spiritual care below. With questions, please email chaplains.office@wheaton.edu or stop by the Chaplain's Office on the north end of lower Beamer... we would love to get to know you!

The Chaplain's Office is here to support you! If you'd like to meet with a Ministry Associate or Student Chaplain in person, please email chaplains.office@wheaton.edu

Gold Star Chapel, located in the Beamer Student Center, is a small memorial chapel always open for personal prayer and meditation. To insure its availability for individual use, Gold Star Chapel cannot be reserved for group functions. 

In a highly sexualized culture, the Chaplain's Office is aware of the need to help students engage as disciples of Christ on matters related to sex and sexuality. Watch for programming under the "Engaging Sexuality" banner, and follow our private Instagram account for ongoing conversations and helpful resources.

We continue our ongoing disciple making at All School Communion by teaching about the 7 loves of the ordinary Christian life. Each All School Communion features one of these 7 loves: love God through worship, love the life of prayer, love the scriptures, love life together, love living life beyond myself, love a life of generosity, and love to rest and celebrate. The primary purpose for this is to provide students with the model for a sustainable way of life. The 7 loves of the ordinary Christian life equip students for a way of life to guide them beyond their college years.
