DSC_6147The pursuit of Christian growth takes various forms around campus, but weekly Chapel services bring the entire community together with a common purpose.

Guest speakers from all walks of life share relevant messages that challenge students to use find their calling and pursue it wholeheartedly. Student-led and guest musical groups provide worship outlets, including award winning original music.

With vibrant musical worship, campus announcements and various special guests throughout each year, Chapel is vital to the Evangel culture.

So many opportunities have been presented to me by attending Chapels. I have had the privilege of listening to the vision of various pastors, the passion of missionaries and tips on how I can put my faith in Christ into action. With powerful worship at the beginning of each service, it is amazing to enter into the Lord’s presence and worship Him for who He is and all He has done. If you choose to engage fully in Chapel, you will learn and be blessed beyond what you could imagine.
