Life at Hendrix
Participation in religious life is actively encouraged but is strictly voluntary. Although proudly related to the United Methodist Church, Hendrix offers students of diverse cultural and spiritual heritages the opportunity to explore and grow in the disciplines of their respective religious traditions.
Hendrix students can integrate their faith with college life in lots of ways with a welcoming and robust religious life program on campus.
The Hendrix Chaplain's Office helps keep students connected to their faith through weekly on-campus programs like fellowship meetings and student-led worship services in Greene Chapel.
Greene Chapel is the center of religious life on campus. It's a beautiful reminder of our United Methodist heritage. Nice place for a wedding too.
the water fountain in the center of campus, Greene Chapel hosts weekly and
special worship services throughout the year, as well as the Hendrix Choir’s
Candlelight Carol Service each December. It is also used frequently for
weddings of Hendrix alumni and community members. The ceiling design and beam
layout in Greene Chapel are designed to resemble a sailing ship; the body of
the Chapel is called the nave (from navis, the Latin word for ship). The design
echoes the ancient view that the Church is a ship carrying the faithful on
life’s journey from this world to the next. Greene Chapel ranked #5 on a list
by theologydegrees.com of the 50 Most Amazing College Chapels and Churches.
Established in 2008, the Miller Center for Vocation, Ethics, and Calling provides programming and resources that encourage Hendrix students to explore the work and life to which they are called.
