At the core of the IWU experience is the spiritual encouragement you will receive as you participate with our campus community in pursuit of a relationship with our Creator. From great speakers and worship in chapel, to great conversations in the dorms, to faculty who will take the time to talk to you about your journey, there is a strong belief in God's desire to speak to every one of our students.

Along with a strong support system, there are challenges to be had as well. You will have real chances here to do more than just talk about your faith; you will be able to live it. We encourage all of our students to become involved with the many opportunities to serve on campus, off campus, and internationally.

Our mission of encouraging students to be "world changers" is not just a cliché; it's really happening. Why don't you join us on the journey?


Chapel is the central point of community for Indiana Wesleyan University. Students and faculty gather every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for corporate worship and spiritual development. It is time to deliberately celebrate the God who draws us together in order to better shape us into Christ-likeness. Check out the upcoming chapel schedule or listen to chapel archives online.

Student Leadership

Student have the oppportunity to serve in 3 different student leadership positions. Student Body Chaplains and Residence Hall Chaplains plan and implement student prayer initiatives, small group Bible studies, and various residence hall and/or all-campus spiritual formation events throughout the academic year.  Chapel Worship Leaders work with a team of student musicians to engage the campus community in the spiritual act of worship through regularly scheduled chapel services each semester.

Spiritual Formation

Helping students grow in their faith is an integral part of the IWU experience. A wide array of options are available to facilitate the students’ spiritual growth, including bible studies and/or small groups, worship nights, mentorship opportunities and other student-led initiatives. Students gather regularly to encourage and support one another in all aspects of college life which provides unique opportunities for accountability and creates relationships that remain long after the college experience.
