Spence Chapel Facility


Completed in 1981, the stunning Robert H. Spence Chapel seats 2,170 people. It is equipped with a magnificent Schantz pipe organ which was donated by the Evangel University Auxiliary, a support organization for the University. The stained glass windows on the eastern face of the building were donated by Mr. Earl Fester, in memory of his wife, Mary Elizabeth.

In 1994, Evangel’s Board of Directors named the chapel for current Evangel President Robert H. Spence, but he asked for the building to remain simply The Chapel for the time being. The naming honor was finally brought to fruition during ceremonies at homecoming 2013.
