Daily chapel is a Northwestern distinctive. The 40-minute services held in Maranatha Hall Monday through Friday give the Northwestern community the opportunity for praise and worship together. Students are encouraged and challenged by distinguished speakers, scholars, missionaries, professors, campus staff and more.
Regular attendance is required of all traditional undergraduate students. Chapel supports the mission of the college by offering biblically-based teaching and opportunity for worship of God through fellowship, praise and the proclamation of His word.

Get a glimpse of what some of students' favorite speakers have shared with us:
Eugene Cho, Founder of One Day's Wages: Eugene is the founding and lead pastor of Quest Church and the executive director of Q Cafe. He's also the founder of One Day's Wages, a non-profit organization focused on global poverty.
Laurie (LeGree’89) Bolthouse, UNW alum and Producer: We connected with Laurie to learn more about what it took to produce her feature film, Trade of Innocents, and actions students can take to combat human trafficking.
Shaun Groves, Singer/Songwriter and Compassion International Rep: “The word ‘worship’ has been translated from many words and none of them mean music... Everything in life is manna—God provides it all.”
"Having the whole campus together to worship God is what makes Northwestern stand out among other private colleges. It’s a great experience to be able to grow in your faith with all your fellow students and to be able to share the same experiences in chapel."
