This summer Pepperdine’s six-member a cappella group, Won by One, traveled along the West Coast to perform live concerts at churches, summer camps, and special events. Learn more about the legacy music ministry that began in 1995 to strengthen ties between the University and Churches of Christ.




The community shared its support for the new Hub for Spiritual Life, a recent initiative that encourages collaboration with students to develop and integrate programs, training, and resources to cultivate a vibrant and consistent spiritual experience at Pepperdine.



I loved spending time in that beautiful chapel as a student at Pepperdine! It was so comforting and peaceful. The spiritual life teams were amazing!


Stauffer Chapel is a great place to worship! It is the place where I married my husband 23 years ago in front of our families, friends, and beautiful stained glass windows overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Great memories.


I was on the Pepperdine Spiritual Life team in 1978. We rocked and made waves! I pray you do the same! And I have happy memories of worship and friendship in this chapel.


Such an amazing team! So pumped!
