Student LIfe On Campus Activities
Grow Your Faith at Westmont
Chapel unites the community through worship, the word and inspiring stories of God’s work and grace. Speakers come from a range of backgrounds and traditions and broaden your understanding of the worldwide church. Meet weekly with fellow students through Capax Dei (room for God) to dig deeper into Scripture, listen to the voice of God and pray. In class, professors share how their faith informs their scholarly work. Talk to your favorite teacher about your faith and your struggles, and they’ll guide you on your spiritual journey. Worship with the student-run Vespers service on Sunday evening. Get involved in a weekly ministry with the homeless community, tutor in a Santa Barbara school or reach out to local college students. Serve in places such as Uganda, Peru, Mexico and Taiwan during the summer. At Westmont, you’ll find a safe environment to seek a bigger view of God.
