Spiritual Development

At the heart of ENC’s vision lies a desire to integrate “the best in education and the best in Christian faith.” The purpose of the Office of Spiritual Development is to foster spiritual transformation in our community. This is implemented through programming and ministries of Faith Formation, Service Opportunities, Pastoral Care and Leadership Development.

Faith Formation


Learn what it means to be in a relationship with Christ or dive deeper into your personal faith journey through various chapel experiences and times of worship.

Community Groups

Gather weekly with peers and friends to spend time in fellowship and grow together in Christ-centered community. If you are interested in joining or leading a group, please contact Emily Ludwig, Assistant Chaplain, at Emily.ludwig@enc.edu.

Service Opportunities

FUSION Short Term Missions

Each Spring Break and May term, ENC sends student mission teams to connect with the activity of God in contexts which cross boundaries of difference. For more information please contact Emily Ludwig, Assistant Chaplain, at Emily.ludwig@enc.edu.

Chapel Teams

Use your creative arts gifts and talents to lead your peers in worship during weekly chapel services. For more information, contact Bubba Snodderly at bubba.snodderly@enc.edu.

Summer Ministries

Each summer ENC sends out teams of students to represent the school and serve as ministers on the Eastern Field for the Church of the Nazarene and other Christian camps and retreat centers.  These teams are chosen in the Fall Semester and are sent out from June through August.  For more information about Summer Ministries, contact Bubba Snodderly at bubba.snodderly@enc.edu.

Pastoral Care

As exciting as these college years are, they can also prove to be confusing or difficult times for many students. The Office of Spiritual Development is dedicated to walking with and supporting students during their time here at ENC. Our Pastoral Care team is here to ensure that students are cared for in their walk. If you are interested in setting up an appointment with a member of the Pastoral Care team, please contact Chaplain Lynne Bollinger at lynne.bollinger@enc.edu.

Leadership Development

In the Office of Spiritual Development, we want to invest in ENC’s student spiritual leaders. Through sponsoring scholarships for students to attend leadership conferences throughout the year and also through providing student chaplain internships and employment, we are training up young adults who desire to use their lives in useful service for the kingdom of God.
