Chapels @ OKWU
Chapel at OKWU exists to help students grow in both their understanding and application of biblical truth during their four years the university. Each chapel seeks to uphold the mission of OKWU by worshipping the person of Christ, hearing from the truth of Scripture, and helping students to engage culture with a biblical worldview.
This Year’s Chapel Theme
Beginning with the story of Creation we find a God whose very nature is bent on invading darkness with light. He SPEAKS light into a chaotic darkness as he establishes created order on earth. He BECOMES light and invades the darkness of humanity as he is revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. And through his Holy Spirit he teaches those of us who call ourselves followers to BE light in the dark places we find ourselves in. At the core of our God’s identity is someone who longs to bring order of out chaos; clarity out of confusion; light out of darkness.
Embedded in the heart of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus once again calls his followers to carry out God’s mission by being light in the darkness. “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14). It’s this image of a city on a hill that provides us with an image for engaging the light of Christ’s truth with the darkness of culture.
If we are serious about who we follow and what we believe, we cannot keep it hidden. This year we want to teach students how to invade darkness with the light of Christ.

Four Year Chapel Curriculum
The Four Year Chapel Curriculum exist to show students where we are as a community and where we are headed. During the 2014-15 school year we will focus on believing and the central question surrounding the year will be ‘What difference does what I believe make?’ Some buzzwords to focus on will be discern, engage, grow, and question. If we believe the Bible is true, then our culture is transformed.
