Howard Chapel

Howard Chapel, located on center campus, is open most days to students for prayer and/or quiet reflection. Worship services in Howard Chapel honor our campus traditions and mark the rhythms of our campus life, from Opening Worship and Naming and Induction at the beginning of the school year to Lessons and Carols in the winter to Baccalaureate at year’s end.

Religious Life Organizations

Barton College supports an array of student religious-life organizations including Disciples on Campus, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Delights, and several weekly Bible studies. 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) If you are not a member of this Christian denomination, no worries! Disciples on Campus is open to all students who are interested in coming together for friendship, fun, and food! The group currently meets bi-monthly on campus for devotions, meals, and acts of service.

Please contact Chaplain Alysun Skinner if you have any questions about Religious Life on campus or worship opportunities in the Wilson area. You may reach her at 252-399-6372 or  

Scholarships for Christian Church (DOC) Students

In addition to the many Disciples scholarships available at Barton, every incoming Disciples student receives a $3,500 scholarship, which is renewable as long as they stay an active part of the campus religious life community.
