Community Life

Campus Worship

While we encourage all Seminary students to worship in a local church congregation, we also encourage them to participate in our weekly chapel services as well.

Seminary students play an important part in the planning of and leading services. The Chapel committee is made up of both faculty and students who, together, discern the focus and shape of each worship experience. Small student fellowship groups, Bible studies, and prayer gatherings further enrich spiritual life of the seminary community.


Thursday at 5:00pm in Isaacson Chapel, Nyvall Hall

Chapel is a primary means of spiritual and communal formation by the Word of God and the sacraments, following a pattern of “gathering, proclaiming, and communing.” Planned by the Chapel Committee, services are led by a variety of students, faculty, pastors, and staff. Seminary chapel is open to all North Park community members. Services are also streamed so our distance and cohort students have access to worship along with us.

Chapel will be followed by a community meal at 5:45 each week in Olsson Lounge, Nyvall Hall.

Community Prayer (and coffee)

Tuesday at 10:45 in Olsson Lounge, Nyvall Hall

Each Tuesday the community will gather for Morning Prayer. This is led by various members of the community who will shape our time together. We focus on community needs and beyond as well as enjoying coffee/tea together following our prayer.

Prayer Room

Open daily in Isaacson Chapel, Nyvall Hall

This space is available for private or group prayer and meditation. The prayer room is also used for spiritual direction throughout the week.
