Greetings from the Chaplain
I’m Jamie Eubanks, and I am proud to serve as the Chaplain of Barton College, an institution that, for over a century, has striven to combine the best of the human mind with the deep things of faith.
College has and always will be a special time in our lives. It is a time when we begin to discover who we are as individuals. We try new things. We meet new friends. We take on new challenges. We question. We grow. We discover.
As chaplain, it is my hope that your time of discovery here at Barton includes an understanding of God’s call in your own life, theological reflection of your own personal beliefs, and learning to articulate and live out those beliefs in a safe space that is supportive and accepting. Therefore, I want to encourage you to get involved in Religious Life while here at Barton. From Disciples on Campus to FCA we have all kinds of groups for you to be a part of. We live in a diverse culture and community and Barton College is no different and everyone is welcome. There is a world of discovery here at Barton. There is a joy in the journey. I hope you join us along the way.

About Disciples on Campus
Barton College and the Disciples on Campus are affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). However, Disciples on Campus is open to all students who are interested in joining. Students come together for fellowship, worship, and service. The group also meets monthly in the homes of local Disciples for home cooked meals.
“Disciples on campus is a great organization that allows me to get away from the stresses of school and fellowship with my fellow Disciples students and others who join us. Being able to get off campus to eat and talk with people in the Wilson community and going on retreats are all helping me become a better Christian and a better person.”
– Shannon Casto, Junior, Visual Communications major, President of Disciples on Campus
Scholarships for DOC Students
In addition to the many Disciples scholarships available at Barton, every incoming Disciples student receives a $1,200 scholarship, which is renewable as long as they stay an active part of the campus religious life community.
