As a Taylor student, you will find chapel is great way to connect with fellow students, faculty and staff. Our regular chapel services are held three times a week and, though attendance isn't monitored, students fill Rediger Chapel/Auditorium. They come to worship together and learn from our speakers who come from our own faculty and staff and from all over the world.
Chapel Coordinators assist the Campus Pastor in a leadership role for planning, promoting and conducting public meetings of worship for the Taylor University community. They work to foster spiritual growth in all areas of campus.
It’s the men and women you live with who encourage attendance and participation not only in chapel, but also in activities the Chapel Coordinators and Campus Pastor help put together on campus. Being an active part of community is what spurs growth. There are many opportunities for you to grow spiritually and relationally with Christ and your peers through Sunday worship and special opportunities.
As you can see, coming together as a student body with faculty and staff to worship our Savior is an integral part of the spiritual life at Taylor.
