Our Mission

Spiritual Life exists to nurture theological depth, spiritual wholeness, and missional living in the students, staff, and faculty at Baylor University by offering integrated formational programing, transformative missional experiences, competent pastoral care, and worship that is responsive to the Christian Tradition and sensitive to culture.

Chapel is the oldest tradition in American higher education. Baylor believes that the need for members of the academic community to come together to focus on both the God who made them and the universe in which they live has not changed.

Formation & BSM

Formation is a spiritual growth resource for all students--from freshmen to graduates--to encourage theological exploration through studies, retreats, meals that foster connection with God and the Baylor community.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is a ministry of compassion and guidance offered by people trained in matters of faith and the soul. Given the many challenges faced in a university setting, students, staff, and faculty can benefit by speaking with a minister from time to time.


BU Missions seeks to create tangible opportunities for students to understand how they can use the knowledge and skills they gain here at Baylor to love people around the world and in the Waco community.
