Welcome to the religious & spiritual life home page at Oxford College. Religious & spiritual life at Oxford is as diverse as every other aspect of our community. That diversity is what makes our programs, religious observances & practices, and our every day engagement with one another both unique and exciting.
While Oxford locates its roots within the United Methodist tradition, we are pleased that we have a wide range of religious and spiritual traditions represented in the college community. We are dedicated to helping you find a way to nurture your own religous and/or spiritual tradition while also respecting and engaging the tradition of others. This includes people who come from a specific tradition as well as those who do not.
The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life is under the direction of the college chaplain, The Reverend Lyn Pace. The chaplain is a resource for all members of the college community and an advocate for the religious and spiritual life groups on campus. Programs and counseling services are offered by the chaplain, and the resources of this office are available to all members of the college community regardless of race, culture, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, gender, or ability.
