Religious & Spiritual Life

We nurture religious and spiritual growth,
mutual understanding and community engagement.

Our religious and spiritual life thrives on a rich diversity of student organizations, regular campus programs led by the Chaplain’s Office, collaborative special events and leadership and service opportunities.

We aren’t afraid of big questions

We explore religion, spirituality, meaning and purpose. We are here to listen. We are committed to practices of hospitality, welcome, service and worship. 

Explore programs that ask big questions, introduce new perspectives and help you grow. Find a community that feels like home, where religious traditions and experiences are both familiar and new. Our staff is a team committed to helping you find meaning, purpose and a place to belong.

We were founded by Presbyterians, but we welcome all

Monmouth College was founded in 1853 by Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who wanted to train a well-educated clergy and encourage a comprehensive, liberal arts education for all. We honor this Christian heritage and maintain our affiliation with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and reflect the PC (USA)’s commitment to ecumenism and diversity by valuing students and faculty members from all denominations, faiths, religious and non-religious backgrounds.
