Spiritual Life


ChapelI came to Bluffton for its spiritual life, but what I found amazed me... (video)

With students from 25 different denominations, 23 states and six countries, our campus is very diverse, Shaped by Mennonite values of respect, peacemaking and service, we believe there is great value when people of different backgrounds come together to create one community.

We seek to shape our worship and ministries in ways that are welcoming and meaningful to all students, regardless of their background.

Fellowship groups, service groups, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Bible studies, student-planned worship services these are just a few of the opportunities offered through the spiritual life office.
