About the Office of Faith and Practice
The Office of Faith & Practice
Eastern University's Office of Faith and Practice (OFP) -- consisting of the University Chaplain, Coordinator of Student Ministries & Service Learning, the Chapel Worship Team Advisor, and an Administrative Assistant--facilitates the spiritual formation of students through weekly chapels and other worship services and Bible studies, campus ministries, service learning opportunities, missions trips, mentoring and teaching. The OFP strives to make all our ministries, programs and interactions with students an opportunity for spiritual formation.

Service Learning Fair
September 5, 2017
Eastern University hosts our local nonprofit partner agencies from the greater Philadelphia region for an on-campus fair to meet our students, tell them about their organization, and do a bit of recruiting. We are grateful for our community partners, without whom we could not send our students out to serve and learn.
Area Churches Day
September 6, 2017
Each year, Eastern University hosts area churches to highlight their ministries and outreach opportunities for our students. The Office of Faith & Practice believes that the church is integral to the spiritual formation of our students. We welcome our area pastors and their representatives and look forward to partnering with them as our students become involved in their various ministries.
Here is a map of the churches that attended our 2016 Area Churches' Day event.
