The mission of the Office of Church Relations is to support and create mutually beneficial relationships for Maryville College and the Church. Founded in 1819 by the Rev. Isaac Anderson, Maryville College proudly claims its Presbyterian heritage. While maintaining a strong relationship with the PC(USA), the college honors and welcomes students and church connections from a broadly diverse faith community. As a church-related liberal arts college, we prepare students for leadership, while challenging them to search for truth and to honor all people and all of creation.
