“Forever Christian, Always Welcoming”

Berry’s Emphasis on educating the “head, heart, and hands” is more than a slogan. It is a mission that defines who we are. The Chaplain’s Office has the primary responsibility for setting the religious tone on campus and assuring that we are educating “the heart” toward spiritually-formed wisdom and maturity.

Our main areas of responsibility include:

  • Ministering to the needs of the whole campus
  • Providing opportunities for Christian growth
  • Spiritual counseling and referral
  • Supporting all Religion-in-Life student groups
  • Helping students find local faith communities to connect with
  • Working with the Interfaith Center to promote understanding of other religious tradition

Our Historic Christian Identity 

Berry was founded upon a commitment to Christian belief and practice. Over 100 years later, this continued commitment is expressed in the phrase “Forever Christian in spirit.” Each week, approximately 40 religion-in-life activities occur on campus, including opportunities for Christian worship, Bible study, fellowship and more. Berry is shaped by an interdenominational, ecumenical approach to Christian faith and values. We welcome people from diverse religious traditions, and we are committed to helping students from different backgrounds find ways to express their faith. 

Promoting Opportunity 

We offer many opportunities to explore and express your faith. There is on-campus worship, concerts, guest speakers, Bible Studies, book discussions, special events and several student fellowship groups. These groups are coordinated through the Religion-in-Life Advisory Council. Through the Care Network, our office seeks to provide spiritual direction, encouragement and care to the entire Berry community. 

The opportunities for spiritual growth are everywhere!  

One great opportunity for Worship, Nurture, and Service is Mount Berry Church. This is our college wide, inter-denominational, Christian worship service which is held each Sunday evening in our College Chapel. Visit us at: 

The Interfaith Council, which partners with the Chaplain’s Office, provides many opportunities to learn about different faith traditions. Visit us at:  

The Chaplain’s Office also hosts the LUMEN Lecture Series. This is a series of academic lectures featuring noted scholars from across the U.S. who speak to our community on topics related to Faith and Life.
