The purpose of chapel is to provide opportunities for worship, instruction and exposure to current issues, ministries, missions and gifted individuals. Chapel is an important part of a student’s educational experience, contributing significantly to individual spiritual formation and the unity of the seminary community.
Chapel services are conducted each Tuesday in the Calvary Chapel auditorium. Additional special chapels are held as announced. Joint university-wide chapel services are held several times a year. Students are required to attend Tuesday chapel services if they have classes either immediately before or after the chapel hour. This requirement also applies to the Thursday of the Lyman Stewart Lectures (fall) and the Robert Saucy Lectures (spring). Participation in the chapel services of the university community are also highly encouraged.
