Spiritual life at Wheaton is a full immersion experience. Learning to love Jesus Christ and His Kingdom happens everywhere from your dorm discipleship small groups to your early morning science lab and from the sports field to chapel.

The Wheaton College Office of the Chaplain exists to cultivate a spiritually formative environment in which faculty, staff and students learn to love Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.

Life with God

Spiritual formation at Wheaton College is rooted in a framework called Life with God which centers our personal and corporate life with God around the theological virtues of Faith, Hope, and Love. These virtues are expressed and nurtured through the nine practices below.

General Content Variant


The most visible part of the work of the Chaplain's office involves the development and implementation of the Chapel program, which aims to build community, enable worship, and foster Christlikeness. Three times a week, students enter the worship environment of Edman Chapel to experience a needed respite from the busyness of campus life. By mere attendance in Chapel students contribute to a sense of corporate community, and in participatory worship students encourage the faith development of their peers. Check out the Chapel schedule for Spring 2020 to see the speakers and scriptures that students are engaging with this semester.
