Chapel Challenges Asbury Community to “Be Bold”
December 29, 2017
WILMORE, Ky. — Most of Asbury University’s classes are small (more than 70 percent of classes have fewer than 20 students) and with an impressive 13:1 faculty/student ratio, students get a personalized learning experience that is highly unique. One “class,” however, is bigger than most. Three times each week, the entire student body meets in Hughes Auditorium for Chapel — a community-wide experience of worship, reflection, encouragement and new perspectives.
Vibrant Christian community is one of the distinguishing features of Asbury University, and there may be no better example than Chapel, an experience offering students the opportunity to learn from each other, from faculty and staff and from visiting guests.
Chapel offers rich variety in the upcoming spring semester. Student-led Chapels will feature contributions from Worship Arts teams, instrumental and vocal ensembles and student testimony. Holiness Emphasis Week will explore Asbury’s Wesleyan Holiness heritage with Dr. Steve DeNeff, senior pastor at College Wesleyan Church in Marion, Ind. Campus will hear from special guests including Phil Vischer, founder of Big Idea Productions and Jellyfish Labs, Dr. Drew Hart, assistant professor of Theology at Messiah College and many more.
From campus life to current issues, Chapel challenges the Asbury community to follow Jesus more closely. Drawn from 2 Tim. 1:7, this year’s theme (“Be Bold”) is a promise and prayer for the new semester: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline.”
