Chapel & Religious Life

Campus Ministries

Board of Stewards

The Board of Stewards are the lifeblood of the Chapel and Religious Life Office. Members help coordinate Chapel services, network with other campus groups, oversee the distribution of the weekly offering to make a positive impact in our community, and lead bible studies and theological forums.

Alpha Delta Theta

Alpha Delta Theta is the Christian service sorority at High Point University. The purpose of ADT is to serve others and God and it is ADT’s goal to grow in friendship and faith with one another.  ADT strives to perform service projects, which have in the past included visiting patients at local nursing homes, walking for MS, sending care packages overseas, and lending a hand with Habitat for Humanity. ADT has also donated money to the United Way of High Point and global projects and initiatives such as Heifer International.

Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity

Alpha Phi Omega is a national co-ed service fraternity based on the three cardinal principles of leadership, friendship and service. Since 1925 when Alpha Phi Omega was founded nationally, the organization has been volunteering in four areas of service: service to the campus, service to the community, service to the nation and service to the fraternity as a whole. The Mu Xi chapter at High Point University was founded in 1958. Members foster unity by collectively completing hundreds of service hours each year on a variety of projects. The fraternity was recognized last year by the Volunteer Center as “Co-service organization of the Year.” Alpha Phi Omega is the largest nationally recognized fraternity in the United States out of all nationally recognized social or service-based greek organizations.

Campus Outreach

Campus Outreach is a nondenominational ministry that seeks to build laborers with a commitment to Jesus and His Great Commission through evangelism and discipleship. CO seeks to reach students with the gospel and training them to become mature followers of Christ.

Catholic Campus Ministry

CCM is the Catholic ministry at HPU. It’s mission is to be a community of Christian faith, hope, and love, offering a spiritual home to all students of High Point University. CCM hosts Catholic mass on HPU’s campus on Sunday nights at 9 pm in the Chapel Fellowship Hall, in addition to our weekly group lunches and service events throughout the school year. Fr. Vincent E. Smith, O.S.F.S. of the Immaculate Heart of Mary leads the mass on Sunday night at 9 pm.

Chapel Choir

Chapel Choir serves as the resident choir for the Chapel at High Point University. This ensemble rehearses every Monday and Wednesday. They are the driving force behind worship, participating in every Chapel service throughout the year.

College Life

College Life is a group open to everyone, where Christianity and the Bible and how they apply to our everyday lives as college students are explored. All are welcome to our Wednesday night “club” twice per month. “Club” is typically a night of fun and celebration. We also have Bible studies, weekend retreats each semester, and opportunities to serve the High Point community through West End Ministries.

Contemporary Worship Leaders

Along with Chapel Choir, a contemporary worship band leads worship at weekly Chapel. Sampling from some of the leading Christian musicians of today, these worship leaders bring Chapel to life each week.

Genesis Gospel Choir

Genesis Gospel Choir was founded at High Point University in 1990. It is a student-led choir that emphasizes worship and praise and welcomes all students to join.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit ecumenical Christian housing ministry which seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. People of all backgrounds, races and religions are invited to build houses together in partnership with families in need.


Hillel is a student organization dedicated to providing opportunities for students to build a Jewish Life at High Point University. Students participate in social and religious activities with other Jewish students on campus and through the region. They celebrate Shabbat and major holidays, assist in regional Jewish service projects and have the opportunity to participate in regional, national and international Hillel events, including Birthright trips to Israel. Hillel welcomes students from all movements of Judaism and people from other faiths who are interested in learning about Judaism.


Impact is a Christian service organization, making disciples of Christ through service.

Interfaith United (Interfaith Group)

If depth of one’s religious tradition is important, so is engagement across traditions. High Point University has begun an interfaith project to bring together students across religious traditions to increase dialogue, understanding, and service. The goal is to appreciate true unity by appreciating diversity in action.


High Point University has a long tradition of successfully preparing students for graduate theological education and for lives of ministry. The Pre-Ministerial group gathers regularly to equip students with skills and training for the life of ministry that is relevant for the 21st century.
