Mission and Community Service

D&E affirms the multi-faceted nature of personal and spiritual growth, and we believe that mission and service are vital components.

Mission Trip

The Presbytery of West Virginia enjoys a sister relationship with the Nyeri Presbytery in Kenya. The College has led multiple mission trips to the region and continues to look for future travel opportunities.

If your church is planning a mission trip or service opportunity, please consider inviting a D&E student or two along as chaperones, program support, or just to make the fellowship connection with them.


Davis & Elkins Students Learn by Helping Others

A four-hour drive to southern West Virginia and five days of manual labor may not sound like the ideal Spring Break vacation. However, for a group of Davis & Elkins College students and staff, the alternative excursion reaped many rewards – friendships, skill building and a renewed appreciation of spiritual and worldly gifts.
