Grow in faith

Our campus culture is rooted in contemporary Mennonite values of peacemaking, community and service. Here you can feed your mind and spirit with unique programs and opportunities to grow your faith.

Not Mennonite? EMU Lancaster students come from many different faith backgrounds! Come be challenged to think about how your faith connects with your core values and choices you make every day… from the way you interact with all of God’s people to the vocational role you pursue.

Feel the support of a community

Meet others who share your values. This happens through service to others, interacting with people who may believe and think differently than you, and study in other cultural settings.
