Christian Education
Workshop For Students!
Having wisdom and understanding is better than having silver or gold. Nice and expensive items can be enjoyable, but there are very few things in life that can never be taken away, will never go out of style, and that truly makes you a better person. Getting an education is one of those things.  Proverbs 16:16

Book's Written By Gammon Alumni
How can prayer help your marriage? Many couples are only concerned with the wedding day. In reality, what happens after the wedding day in days, months, and years to follow is what is really important. Marriage takes purposeful and persistent prayer.




Journey to Transformation is divided into four sections: Lenten Devotional, Prayer, Reflection, and My Action. Since Lent is a time for self-examination and renewal, Bishop Lewis offers a “My Action” section each day to allow readers to continue to put into practice what they have read and reflected upon, and as an opportunity to transform someone’s life.

Highlighting United Methodist HBCU's
Rust College
As a United Methodist-related institution, Rust affirms the Wesleyan tradition of “knowledge and vital piety.” The Religious Education Department helps students explore religion, spirituality, and moral values as an integral part of a liberal arts education. On-campus activities include chapel, Vespers, spiritual formation groups, mission, and study groups. All on-campus religious activity must be approved by the Chaplain. A directory of congregations for off-campus worship is also available.
The Rust community worships in James A. Elam Chapel. The Chaplain provides counseling, spiritual direction, and mentoring. Students may serve on the Religious Education Committee to plan programming. The College welcomes students from all religious traditions—as well as those with none. All interactions about religion shall be respectful and tolerant of others. Proselytizing (soliciting converts to one’s personal religious practice) is not allowed.

Gammon Students
At Gammon, intellectual discourse and ministerial preparation occur in tandem within the framework of a community of faith. Student life is designed with the recognition that learning extends beyond the classroom to the student lounge, refectory, chapel, and campus residence. Life long bonds are fostered when the community studies together, fellowships together, and celebrates together God's presence and activities among us.
