Located in the Sharon and Ron Matthews Ministry Center (MMC), the Department of Religious Life and Office of the Chaplain are available for students interested in connecting with religious and spiritual life on campus, learning about faith communities, or seeking spiritual support along the journey of university life. Religious Life fosters a spirit of hospitality that supports and encourages all students, faculty and staff in honoring the sacred. In this environment of education and growth, there are safe and respectful times and places to wrestle with the hard questions of life. The University Chaplain, adjunct chaplains and staff are available to students of all traditions for conversations around faith and personal matters. Religious Life has many opportunities to serve, lead and grow spiritually. The core tenets of Religious Life are: Connect. Grow. Serve. Listen. Love. Learn.

A mid-week chapel service is offered on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. It is non-denominational and open to all. Catholic Mass is offered on Sunday evenings at 9 p.m. Student Religious Life Organizations include FCA, Bible Study, PGM Fellowship, One Voice Gospel Choir, Interfaith Council, and “Unpacking Religion” discussion groups.

The Ministry Center’s Student Lounge,  “The Family Room,” (open 7 a.m.-12 midnight) is an inviting place for students to relax, watch TV, study, meet new people and enjoy an occasional snack. The University Chaplain, Rev. Kelli W. Taylor, is available at (910) 630-7515 or ktaylor@methodist.edu. Student program information is available from Ruth Carr at (910) 630-7157 or rcarr@methodist.edu.
