Christian Life

Student group photoDavidson provides a range of opportunities for students from many different Christian backgrounds to worship, find fellowship, and grow in faith. As a premier liberal arts college with a strong honor code, Davidson is an ideal setting for students seeking a rigorous education in a values-based residential setting where religious faith is honored.

Student Organizations

We have 10 student-led Christian organizations on campus. Many of these groups have chaplains or campus ministers (either ordained clergy or laypeople) who advise the organizations and spend extensive time on campus getting to know students individually. We recognize and value the uniqueness of every student and we are invested in your spiritual growth.


We have a variety of on-campus worship in specific traditions, as well as ecumenical Christian services on holy days.
