Religious Life

Chapel - Lamb in Stained Glass


Religious Life Organizations

The Office of the Chaplain supports a diverse and vibrant array of student-led Religious Life Organizations, including Barton Christian Ministries, Barton College Catholic Ministries, Disciples on Campus, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Interfaith, and Young Life. If your religious tradition is not yet represented at Barton, the Chaplain will work with you to find resources or start a new group. All are welcome in our community, whatever your religious affiliation or background.

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 receivesĀ a $1,200 scholarship, which is renewable as long as they stay an active part of the campus religious life community.
