Exercising biblical principles is of the utmost importance to PHC's leadership, so much so that it’s woven into the fabric and identity of the college. Every professor and every lecture is grounded in Christ and His instruction. In fact, many students attend Patrick Henry College in search of a college-level Christian education that will enforce and grow their faith.
Every Tuesday and Thursday each residential wing gathers to discuss the Word of God and students' personal walks with Christ. These student-led Bible studies are organized and spearheaded by the wings' Resident Assistants. These small studies lead students to be more comfortable with sharing and opening up to their neighbors.
Students and faculty gather together three times a week for corporate chapel. Here, the whole school sings praises and gather to listen to a speaker present a message. It’s these two types of routine meetings that continuously remind students that Christian faith is a priority at PHC, not just an afterthought. It is the cornerstone of our mission, and Chapel helps keep that in perspective.
Student-organized Sunday night worship provides students an opportunity to band together for a moment of praise. For thirty minutes, students sing their favorite worship songs, reorienting their minds to the simple but profound being of God.
