Learn by Experience 

Huntingdon College’s Christian education, Religion, and Youth Ministry majors are supported by a Campus Ministries program rich with opportunities for students to serve and lead at every level. In addition, most students are involved as youth leaders, worship leaders, church music leaders, Young Life and Wyldlife leaders, and in a myriad of positions in church administration and mission service through local churches. Huntingdon is a member of the Alabama-West Florida Conference of The United Methodist Church.


Miriam Jackson Home houses the offices for most religion faculty, with study areas and a student lounge for majors. The College’s Ligon Chapel, inside Flowers Hall, is the site of Chapel services, lectures, and many of the College’s traditions and celebrations. Jean Rodgers Chapel, on the second floor of Flowers Hall, is a more intimate setting for small services, worship, and prayer.



Huntingdon religion alumni have entered a number of seminaries, including Duke, Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Candler, New Orleans Baptist, Union Theological Seminary, Vanderbilt, and Asbury. Graduates have also entered master’s and Ph.D. programs in areas such as business, law, theater, English, religious studies, and theology.
