Spiritual life opportunities
Chapel and Worship
Campus pastor: “Tig” Ingatliata, 419-358-3219
Chapel planning committee
Chapel planning committee meets weekly to plan and evaluate chapel services. Comprised mostly of students, along with some faculty and staff, the committee seeks to plan worship services that reflect the diversity of worship styles and denominational backgrounds of our student body.
Students make up the worship band that leads music at Chapel services and other worship events. The band is led by a local worship pastor and practices are held on Wednesday night. If you would like to sing or play in the worship band at Chapel, please contact “Tig” Intagliata or Chapel band leader Jonathan Burkey via campus email.
The Worship Dance team practices weekly and performs during Chapel services several times throughout the school year. No previous dance training is necessary. If you are interested in being part of the team or learning more about it, contact “Tig” Intagliata.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes
Advisor: Tig Intagliata

Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) are students who seek to discover what it means to integrate Christian faith into life on and off of the athletic field. Bluffton's FCA group is made up of both athletes and those who aren't currently on a team but who enjoy sports. FCA meets weekly for Bible Study and sponsors activities at sporting events, organizes events such as an annual corn-hole tournament, and provides opportunities for service to the campus and community.

STUDENT PASTORAL ASSISTANTS:
Jayden Groppi, Lindsay Horn and Hannah Stephens
Ministry assistants work at building community and serving as a spiritual resource
to their fellow students. They are available as a listening ear for peer counseling
and support. They also provide opportunities for spiritual growth, such as Bible studies,
mentoring, prayer practices and other ways to connect with God both individually and
in small group settings. Ministry assistants are a good resource in helping students
get oriented to various spiritual life activities on campus, as well as service projects
