Spiritual Life

Though the college has a historic and ongoing relationship with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), students come from a variety of Protestant, Catholic, and other traditions, or identify with no particular faith. At Bethany, you have the opportunity to find a safe place to question, explore, and develop a growing faith in the context of a caring community.
