As is clear from its name, Chung Yuan Christian University was founded according to Christian and Biblical principles. The Chaplain`s Office was established for that purpose. We care for, counsel, and provide comfort to any students and faculty who are experiencing doubt or facing challenges in their lives.

We serve about 16,000 students and 900 faculty members at the university. Such a wide harvest field relies on the help of many enthusiastic and devoted Christian faculty and students to sustain our services. The office continues to evangelize and create an environment full of love and care according to the vision of holistic education. We aim to lead our faculty and students to develop a religious understanding of life and pursue meaning within it. We look to Jesus Christ as our role model as we seek to honor God and benefit others.

The office provides two required courses for undergraduate students: “Philosophy of Life” and “Philosophy of Religion”. We invite professional Christian lecturers to inspire students to think about their values and the meaning of life. Hopefully, students will understand the significant impact that religious belief can bring to life and realize that God can help them establish a correct philosophy of life.

There are various fellowships for students and staff alike. Members are encouraged to share their testimony with others and cooperate with local churches, institutes and Christian clubs. These fellowships include our International Fellowship, and we welcome our international students to come and take part.

During every semester, the Chaplain’s office holds around 10 “Life Lectures” and between 4 to 6 concerts. Additionally, each year we hold a Gospel Camp, a Mother’s Day choir contest, a Good Friday Communion Service, a Christmas Tree Lighting and other celebrations and events of all kinds. All these activities are meant to inspire faculty and students to explore their beliefs and the meaning of life.
