On behalf of Rust College and the Office of Religious Education, I bring you greetings. As Chaplain, I direct all religious activities realizing that for some students their spiritual growth is as important to them as their academic growth. With this in mind, the mission is to promote an engaging diverse community of faith, supporting the entire Rust College family with a well-rounded program dedicated to teaching cultural, moral, and spiritual values in both theory and practice.
With both traditional and nontraditional service opportunities and activities students are able to cultivate their faith, explore their passions, and build community. We nurture the seeds of grace God has given us with our heart by private acts of devotion such as Bible reading and prayer and by public worship. We nurture them with our minds through our scholarship. We nurture those seeds of grace with our hands by service to others through acts of social justice and compassion. What an awesome phase of life this is for a college student!
