Great Cloud of Witnesses Wall

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”    - Hebrews 12:1-2

The names listed in this area exemplify Taylor University’s “great cloud of witnesses.” These people are being memorialized or honored for their spiritual influence on the friends or family members listed below their names. The contributions through these tributes sustain both the facility and the purpose of the Memorial Prayer Chapel.
