Spiritual Life

Our mission is to ensure that we walk alongside our students as they do life at Hardin-Simmons University. We offer a intentional campus ministry, so that each student has the opportunity for spiritual formation while they are at HSU. It is our desire to engage students mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.

We want the Office of Spiritual Formation at HSU to be a place where students, faculty, and staff are supported in their ongoing Christian development. We would love the opportunity to join with you and encourage you in your walk with Christ.

Talk to Someone

At Hardin-Simmons, you’ll hear “the HSU family” frequently from students and staff members. We’re always here to help, and sometimes that means just listening.

If you need to talk about something important, call Shelli Presley, Director of Spiritual Formation at 325-670-1087.

Baptist Student Ministry

The HSU Baptist Student Ministry (BSM) exists to minister to the spiritual needs of the students and to equip them for ministry in their daily lives. Through discipleship in community, we strive to help students deepen their relationship with Christ and make disciples of all nations. We are called to love, serve, and to walk alongside students during their time at HSU.

Chapel services are held on Tuesday & Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in Logsdon Chapel throughout the fall and spring semesters (unless otherwise noted). All students who attend chapel can expect diversity in music and in shared experience of the gospel message. It is our hope that all students will uncover, through their chapel experience, faith that has been grown or discovered. It is our expectation that, through chapel, students will understand that the gospel is not just the ticket that got you in, it is also what sustains your life.

Tuesday chapel services are also streamed live and past services can be viewed on the HSU YouTube Channel.

Worship Opportunities

In addition to our regular chapel services, HSU provides additional opportunities to worship during Christian holidays and at other special times. Worship teams are organized and arranged through our School of Music. Interested musicians and singers are always encouraged to help us praise God!
