Find Your People. Begin the Journey.
When every student completes their time at Baylor, we want them to be able to identify a community of mentors, peers, and ministers who walked alongside them in their spiritual growth and development. Finding your people is about establishing yourself in a unique community that can support you in good and hard times, navigate the difficult questions, encourage and challenge you spiritually, and show you a picture of the flourishing Christian life. Chapel experiences are the start of this journey.
Chapel experiences emerge from the communities here at Baylor that are already investing in the spiritual lives of our students. From academic cohorts, LLCs, athletics, campus ministries, residential colleges, and other programs, there is a chapel experience connected to the groups our students are already finding themselves.
Chapels are an orienting experience where students select their section by identifying communities and connections that resonate with them. In these chapel experiences, each Baylor student will experience Christian discipleship and learning that exposes them to the flourishing Christian life within a supportive community that can continue this journey long after chapel credits are complete. While unique, these chapel experiences all share a continuity within Baylor’s mission for quality content from trained leaders.
Chapel is the oldest tradition in American higher education. When Baylor was founded in 1845, Chapel was a part of life for students and faculty alike. Chapel has played an integral role in the life of Baylor University since its inception. What began as a single daily prayer service for all faculty, staff, and students has transformed over time to meet needs and respond to changes within the life of the university and the world at large.
