Affiliate Ministries and Student Groups
The Office of the Chaplain/Director of Religious Life welcomes a number of externally supported ministries to engage in ministry and religious activity on the campus of Elizabethtown College on behalf of religious traditions/denominations and faith-related organizations. Affiliates Ministers/Religious Leaders are local clergy and campus ministry workers who engage in religious ministry/activity on the Elizabethtown College campus, and although they are not paid by the College, they are a significant part of the Religious Life at Elizabethtown College.
Student-initiated religious clubs and groups are a crucial part of the religious life of the College. Student religious clubs and groups include any club or group which has religion, spirituality, and/or faith-based service as a primary component of its mission. Religious clubs and groups are led by students, with either the Chaplain or faculty/ staff advisor.

CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach)/Rekindle
The goal of reKindle is to provide a community at Elizabethtown College where students of any denomination or background can ask important questions about life and faith, and fan into flame a first-time faith or one that has grown cold over time. This will take place in a Christian context through social activities, Bible study, prayer, local church involvement, and CCO leadership/growth opportunities.
