Religious Life

Coe students like to think about religious life as a way to learn more about themselves. By holding services and activities that embrace many different faith communities, our students are asked to look inside themselves and explore what it means to be a faith based person. Mission trips to Ethiopia, reading to youth in the city of St. Louis, interfaith dialogues with Chaplain Rev. Kristin Hutson and much more are just some of the activities we do to explore our faith and reach out to the community. Coe was founded as a Presbyterian College, but we like to open our minds and hearts to many diverse faith perspectives. All are welcome to participate.

Ways to Get Involved:

Office of the Chaplain
Join the Chaplain in dialogues about what it means to be a faith based person in every aspect of your life. Major activities include Sunday Night Live, Spring Break Trips to the Gulf Shores and volunteering with seniors from Kingston Hill.

Peer Ministry
Students who are interested in taking on a stronger leadership role in the ministry at Coe may apply to serve as a peer minister in this one-year internship with the College Chaplain. It is a great opportunity for any student considering vocational ministry.
