Church involvement is a type of civic engagement that gives various benefits to students particularly in developing and nurturing values. This study determined the students? involvement in church activities and their values formation. The descriptive-correlation design was adopted and the survey questionnaire was distributed to 320 college students of Misamis University, Philippines. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (Pearson r) was used to explore the correlation between students? involvement in church activities and their values formation. Findings revealed that students were sometimes able to attend church and their involvement to church activities was moderate. Overall, the values exhibited by students were well-developed. However, looking into each of the values, it appears that composure/peace and tolerance/adaptability were only adequately-developed. There was a statistically positive correlation between students? involvement in church activities and their values formation. The findings of this study may be used by the school in formulating plans that foster church involvement and values formation.
