Christian Chaplaincy

The Christian Chaplaincy, led by the Christian Chaplain, works closely with Emory's Christian Religious Life Affiliates, alumni, faculty, staff, and students to support the Christian communities at Emory through a progressive and pluralistic approach, with special attention to supporting Emory's Methodist heritage through worship, education, retreats, and service.

The Christian Chaplain provides outreach and helps to organize the Christian communities, develops leadership groups, and collaboratively plans, develops, and implements high-quality spiritual life programs including weekly gatherings, holiday observances, retreats, service and social justice projects, and fellowship events. 

The Christian Chaplain is also available for pastoral care and leadership in invocations, weddings, memorial services, vigils, and other rituals as needed. The Christian Chaplaincy works closely with other OSRL chaplains, staff, and students on interfaith initiatives and connects the campus with local, regional, and national opportunities and resources.
