Graduate School Chapel

Grad Chapel provides the only opportunity for the whole grad school community, regardless of program or department, to gather together for worship and fellowship.

This time of worship and fellowship allows time for spiritual refreshment and encouragement in the middle of the week. All students, faculty, staff, and community members are welcome. Weekly programming is overseen by the Graduate School Chaplain and the Dean of the Graduate School.

From time to time, you may also be interested in visiting the undergraduate chapel services in Edman Chapel at 10:40 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Feel free to find an empty seat following the opening chimes. If interested, please reference the undergraduate chapel schedule.

In non-COVID times, all Grad Chapel services take place on Wednesdays, 10:40-11:25 am in Barrows Auditorium, main level of the Billy Graham Hall. All students, faculty, staff, and community members are welcome.

Due to COVID, the spring semester 2021 Grad Chapel services are occurring virtually every Wednesday from 10:40-11:20 am by livestream which can be viewed here.

Archived Grad Chapel services can be viewed online at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9GwT4_YRZdBbgeeuftfGvX4MOy-HhH9T.
