"So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.-1 John 4:16"
A. Elaine Crawford

As an intuition of higher learning related to the United Methodist Church, we value religion and spirituality. The Office of Religious Life is charged with overseeing the university’s efforts to promote spiritual awareness.
