Office of the Chaplain

Chaplains' Office

The mission of Stetson University’s Chaplaincy is to articulate, support, give witness to, and develop the religious and spiritual dimensions of life within the university setting, recognizing the plurality of religious traditions present; and to lead the community and its members to integrate these dimensions more fully in their lives.

Spiritual Guidance and Support

The Chaplains’ office is here to help the Stetson University community develop and maintain the religious and spiritual dimensions of life.

Services offered by our chaplains include support during emergencies, hospitalization and other crises; spiritual guidance; help in finding a nearby religious community of your tradition; and programs to empower spiritual and personal growth.

Our chaplains, Rev. Christy Correll-Hughes, Sensei Morris Sullivan and Rev. Willie Barnes Jr. are available at posted office hours and by appointment, to meet with students individually and to conduct programs and services with groups.

Rev. Christy Correll-Hughes is an ordained Baptist minister, a Certified Leadership Coach and lay leader at New Covenant Baptist Church in DeLand. She comes to Stetson University after serving in the chaplain’s office at Baylor University.

Sensei Morris Sekiyo Sullivan is an ordained Buddhist minister, spiritual head of Volusia Buddhist Fellowship in DeLand, meditation teacher and mindfulness instructor and Zen Master in Rinzai Zen.
