Chapels are planned by the Campus Pastor to accomplish one or more of the following: build Christ-centered community, provide worship opportunities, inform students about Christian mission, and assist with the integration of faith and life.
Forums are planned by faculty and staff to create dialogue about a specific topic or idea.

All chapels and forums begin at 11 a.m. unless otherwise noted. Chapel takes place in the Hesston Mennonite Church Worship Center. Audio of past chapels is available by clicking on linked chapel titles.

DVD recordings of most chapel services are available for purchase ($5 for campus delivery, $7 for shipped copies) from Gary Oyer, director of Media and Instructional Technology Services.
