IWU Chapel Schedule | Fall 2018

“Knowing how pivotal college is for young adults, we at IWU are very intentional about our time together – both in the classroom, as well as every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning when our Marion IWU community meets together for chapel. It is our time to worship, encourage, nurture, as well as stretch our student’s hearts and minds towards a deeper life in Christ.” – Dr. David Wright, IWU President

At IWU, students experience spiritual encouragement and growth as they participate with the campus community in pursuit of a relationship with our Creator. Students and faculty gather three times weekly for Chapel—a period of corporate worship and spiritual development. It is time to deliberately celebrate the God who draws us together in order to better shape us into Christ-likeness. 

As we head into a new year, we look forward to all the Lord has in store for this campus. Check out the Chapel schedule for Fall 2018 below!
