Opportunities for spiritual fellowship abound on campus and can be formally led by professors, informally led by students, classes held in partnership with Emory United Methodist Church, or a book study hosted by Chaplain Briggs. At Emory & Henry you will find discussion groups on keeping the faith in your future occupation, meetings with fellow athletes, and retreats to help you remember that life is not always about the next test.
