Speaker Information

Welcome to George Fox University Office of Spiritual Life! Our mission is to encourage our community to find their identity, passion, and calling in relationship with Jesus Christ in order to engage them in the work of God in the world. Chapel is one of the venues this mission is carried out and we look forward to having you be a part of that. Chapel is every Wednesday at 10:40 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. in Bauman Auditorium. We ask that before you arrive you take some time to watch a few of our recent chapel messages through podcast as well as view our current chapel curriculum. This will help you in understanding the culture of our chapel services as well as be aware of how your message will fit in with our current series. Whether you are a first time speaker or veteran, please look over the following process and fill out the electronic forms listed below. You need only fill out the forms that pertain to your visit.
