You are a Jesus follower.
You want to live authentically for Christ in our world, to serve God with everything you’ve got.
You want a safe place to ask questions and find answers while walking alongside others who will support and challenge you.
You want so much to be a part of healing our broken world.
At Houghton, YOU WILL.
At Houghton, students have an active role in spiritual formation. Professors integrate faith into classes, mentoring sessions, and even discussions over coffee. Chapel services intersect academics, community, and faith. Prayer groups and worship services lift God’s name on high. Here, everyday rhythms become opportunities for God’s presence.
There has been a radical change in me since I started my freshman year. Coming in, I thought I knew what it meant to pursue God and to have a relationship with Him...in reality that adventure had barely even started. The mentors, prayerful professors, Godly friends, Bible studies, chapel services, and different opportunities on campus have challenged me and pushed my faith to depths that I did not know possible.

A Passion to Serve
Service is a cornerstone of the Christian life – and Houghton is no different. Our students travel to Buffalo to help refugee families read, volunteer as a Big Brother/Big Sister for local kids, teach soccer to children in Africa, visit and perform for elderly shut-ins, and more.
Our students touch lives locally, regionally, and internationally – and, in turn, leave Houghton changed.
