Opportunities for involvement in Spiritual Life are as unique as the students we serve. While rooted in the United Methodist tradition, our Spiritual Life support takes a holistic view and offers respect for each person's place across the spectrums of faiths and commitment. College Chaplain Mary K. Briggs opens the doors of our Chapel and our minds leading our community of students to grow together in spiritual discernment. Whether your need is preparation for church ministry, counseling for a personal matter, or a place to meet friends, you are welcome.

"Emory & Henry offered me a place to explore my calling to ministry hand in hand with my love of social justice. The communities of faith here allowed me to find the best friends of my life and the ideas and ideals that have shaped me into the person I am today and the person that I am continuously becoming."

"I go to the Higher Ground Bible Study, and we get new members pretty much every Thursday that we meet! Spiritual Life programs at E&H seem to bring out the best in people, and reduce the burden of stress on everyone. We are incredibly diverse and inclusive, and our retreats off campus are a blast!"
