The Samuel Tyndale Wilson Center for Campus Ministry (CCM) provides the home base for the Spiritual Life and Community Engagement programs at the college. Stop by the CCM and you’ll be likely to find a listening ear, a challenging program, or a group of students planning a service trip. Bonner, Bradford, Church and College, Isaac Anderson, and Chapel Scholar programs are all based in the CCM. We also serve as host to many student religious groups, and many students find our space to be an inviting and quiet place to study. You can find more information about scholarship programs, student religious groups, and community engagement on our website; also feel free to stop by any time!
The Center for Campus Ministry holds a chapel service each week from 1:15-1:50 on Tuesdays. No classes are held during this protected time, so everyone is invited to gather together in a time of worship. A student-led worship committee plans services.
We do not hold services on campus on Sunday mornings; instead we encourage students to attend church at a local congregation. For a list of local congregations, please see our website. We invite you to contact us if you need transportation or want more guidance in connecting with a local worshiping community.
2018-2019 Chapel Program
"The Roads we've traveled"
The CCM's chapel theme for the year 2018-19 will help kick off our bicentennial year, by looking back at where we have come from, both as a college and in our personal lives. Isaac Anderson traveled many roads from Virginia to Tennessee, and each subsequent president traveled in search of donors, students, and support for the college. Kin Takahashi traveled from Japan; George Erskine traveled to Liberia. Others traveled over the mountains, but each journey marked them and thus changed who we are as a geography, or from one way of understanding to another. Where have you been? How has that shaped you? Who are you now because of that?
Chapel will take place at 1:15 p.m. in the Center for Campus Ministry unless otherwise noted. Chapel will conclude in time for students and professors to attend 2:00 classes.
