Chapel Electives

Throughout the year there are different special events and groups that are available for Chapel Elective Credit. Below is a running list of events and groups we have approved to count toward chapel elective credit. In order to recieve credit for attending a chapel elective event a student must fill out a form on their MyGFU chapel portal answering a few questions about an event they attended. Students may earn up to 5 of their total needed 15 credits through attending chapel electives. Watch the university's e-nnouncements to read about upcoming events that count toward elective credit. View a list of our current chapel electives.
