With roots in the Church of the Brethren, Manchester University is committed to sustaining our community of faith, learning, and service. Religious life on campus is facilitated by the Campus Pastor, Campus Interfaith Board (a student board), and the Religious Life Committee (composed of faculty, staff and students).
The Religious Life Program includes activities such as weekly chapel services, spirituality groups and other small group opportunities, Bible studies, service projects, retreats, dialogues and guest speakers.
