College life is a time of exciting intellectual and social growth. Students consider new ideas, discover new interests, and explore ever-broadening horizons. College can also be a time of spiritual exploration and maturity. Ferrum College Spiritual Life offers students a chance to examine their faith, to assess what is most important, and to forge a system of values that will sustain them through their adult years.
Growing out of its history of service and its affiliation with the United Methodist Church, Ferrum College is committed to creating an environment that encourages spiritual growth and development. As a result, Ferrum College offers a number of opportunities for students to celebrate life, faith, and explore God’s intention for human living.
Ferrum College Spiritual Life is a place for you to:
