Fellowship and Education
Queens is home to a variety of groups such as the Chapel Fellows program, Catholic Fellowship, Hillel, the Muslim Student Association (Salaam), Young Life and the Fellowship for Christian Athletes. The Multi-Faith Council serves as an umbrella for these clubs, ensuring we work together in mutual respect to address the spiritual needs of our campus.
Each year brings new opportunities for student and Chapel-driven programs that inspire our community to explore its spirituality. A few highlights include:
Weekend trips to Montreat, the famous Black Mountain retreat center of the Presbyterian Church USA. These retreats are a time to relax, rejuvenate and explore issues of faith in the sanctuary of nature.
The Chapel Fellows are a special group of students who engage in volunteer service at The Grove Church, then come together for fellowship and reflection on what they encountered. Each week they explore what the scriptures say about a specific theme as well as exploring the theme through other authors.
The Gospel Choir performs at Belk Chapel services and often travels at the invitation of other schools and churches. A student-based volunteer choir, the group sees gospel music as a means for personal expression and fellowship.
Students who miss a home-cooked meal have enjoyed Mana Mondays. Hosted by Chaplain Diane Mowrey, it's a chance to join together over a meal and read something new. Each year brings a different theme, from the sermons of Martin Luther King Jr. to "What's on your iPod: Your Music and Your Spirituality."
Center for Ethics and Religion
Students are also encouraged to participate in programs offered by the College of Arts and Sciences' Center for Ethics and Religion. Its mission is to educate-through dialogue-the Queens and broader communities on the intersection of ethics and religion in our lives.
