Worship at Mar Hill 

Mars Hill is a place where students are encouraged to integrate faith into their exploration of the world. The Chaplain’s Office serves as a resource in this regard. We sponsor weekly Crossroads services; facilitate the workings of the Christian Student Movement; offer support to blueprint, On a Mission, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes; provide pastoral counseling and guidance to students, faculty, and staff; and relate externally to congregations and agencies supportive of our mission. In general, we seek to facilitate the religious dialogue on campus and meet the spiritual needs of the Mars Hill family.
