Can you describe what it's like being a Christian at Dartmouth?

A: Adrian Chimboza '25

"But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin." – 1 John 1:7 NLT

Being a Christian has been a part of my identity for nearly 12 years. My faith in God and what he can do has allowed me to navigate the rough patches of elementary school, primary school, secondary school, and college. For me to be where I am right now, I genuinely believe it has been because of God's grace which has come in the form of the blessings that he has poured over my life both through his word and the people I have met back home and mainly here at Dartmouth.

If I could summarize in three words what has been pivotal in my walk with God here at Dartmouth, I would say 'community, community, and community.' I can share with you that Dartmouth was the first place I actually began seriously walking with God and this is attributed in part to the different people I met in my freshman year here who supported me throughout my pursuit of God's word and his will for my life. With that said, there are various ways in which you can contribute or become part of Dartmouth's Christian community, and below I have outlined the multiple Christian Churches/denominations, and student communities on campus as well as attached the links to their various websites.
