About the Chapel

The chapel serves the spiritual needs of the Baldwin Wallace University community. A variety of activities and services are offered in an effort to give students, faculty and staff meaningful opportunities to enrich their spiritual lives.

At the heart of the chapel program is the conviction that making connections with God, with others and with self is what a vital spiritual life is all about. Programs of Christian nurture and study, general spiritual exploration and interfaith activities are part of the rich, evolving tapestry of growing connections created at the chapel. Whether you are committed to a particular religious tradition or searching for spiritual meaning, you are welcome.
