Spiritual Life Organizations
Finding a spiritual community in college is important. We have several types and styles of gatherings — some large and some small — because we know that spiritual interests and needs are as diverse as the students on campus.
Whether you come to college with a strong background in your faith tradition or are searching for spiritual meaning and purpose, you will soon find that you are not alone. Spiritual life groups offer support, encouragement, and a reminder that college life is not always about the next paper or exam.

“Kerygma” is an ancient Greek word meaning “proclamation.” This group gathers with Campus Christian Fellowship (CCF) and Expedition as part of Family Dinner Night. Kerygma’s goal is to support one another in discerning God’s will for their lives. Participants include persons discerning a call to ordained ministry as well as others who seek to honor God in their chosen professions. Besides talking about their own successes and challenges of living as Christians, they host guest speakers, clergy and laity, who talk about how they nurture and share their faith in their daily life and work. Also, Kerygma members welcome admissions representatives from seminaries and periodically make visits to seminaries.
If you would like specific information regarding seminary visits, please ask Associate Chaplain Sharon Wrightswright@ehc.edu.
