Spiritual Life

Trevecca believes that the spiritual formation of students as disciples of Jesus Christ is central to our mission. The general education core curriculum consists of three specific courses in religion which seek to enhance the student’s understanding of the Bible, the Christian faith, and the Christian life and service. Classes of all disciplines are regularly opened with prayer.

Chapel is an integral part of the spiritual life on our campus. The Trevecca community gathers each week for times of prayer, worship through song, preaching, the reading of scripture, the proclamation of the gospel and sharing in the sacraments (see Chapel brochure for specific dates). In both the fall and spring semesters, a week is set aside in which spiritual deepening is the primary focus. Attendance requirements for these worship opportunities are outlined in the Student Handbook. Many of the residence halls have a prayer chapel for private meditation and small group prayer meetings. Discipleship and accountability groups for both residential and non-residential students are offered and students are encouraged to participate. For spiritual counseling, the members of the Office of the Chaplain maintain regular office hours.

Through student government, Campus Ministries coordinates student-led spiritual life activities on campus and offers opportunities for involvement in ministry through the planning of student chapels, as well as numerous outreach opportunities in various areas of service throughout Middle Tennessee and the southeast region. In addition, opportunities for ministry through TAG (Trevecca Around the Globe) Teams minister both domestically and abroad during fall and spring breaks as well as the summer months. Summer long ministry opportunities are available through the IMMERSE program.

All students are strongly encouraged to become actively involved in a local church while they are enrolled at Trevecca.
