Take daily strength from living in a Spirit-filled community.


Chapel is a wonderful opportunity for our community to worship God together. The format and style of chapels vary greatly–from meditations to testimonies to services of song and prayer, from organ to band to piano, from very quiet, contemplative chapels to exuberant, joyfully noisy (Ps. 100) chapels. Chapels are led by students, faculty and staff. Sometimes people from outside our community lead chapel, but usually, chapel is led by members of our own seminary community who use their gifts in the worship of God.

We invite you to check out the following links in searching for worship opportunities in local congregations. Given our core biblical conviction that Christians grow up into Christ in the context of Christ’s body, the church, an essential formation activity throughout one’s seminary career is regular, active engagement in a particular local congregation.
