Chapel Electives

Throughout the year a number of special events and group meetings are available for Chapel Elective Credit. The credit-eligible events are being determined and will be updated on this page when available. 

Below is a list of events officially approved to count toward chapel elective credit. In order to receive credit for attending a chapel elective event, a student must fill out a form on their MyGeorgeFox chapel portal answering a few questions about an event they attended. Chapel elective forms are to be submitted within 48 hours of the event for chapel elective to be credited.  

Interested in having your event approved as a chapel elective? Please note that that all chapel electives must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. The chapel elective must be approved by the spiritual life office and must support the George Fox Statement of Faith and the Spiritual Life chapel mission statement. (While small groups/life groups are an essential part of spiritual formation at George Fox, we do not give chapel credit for participating in them.)
  2. The chapel elective must be supervised by a George Fox employee (faculty or staff), including the presence of the supervising employee at the event/series of events.
  3. The chapel elective must include some educational component - devotional, sermon, lecture, training that is aimed at educating the participant’s Christian faith/spiritual formation.
  4. The chapel elective must be submitted to the spiritual life office ( for approval no less than two weeks prior to the event.
  5. Chapel electives must be held on campus.
  6. The Office of Spiritual Life leaves the following elements up to each office hosting the approved events:
    1. Event Location (please connect with Event Services in order to reserve any space on campus)
    2. Funding for the event (this is up to the discretion of the office/faculty hosting the event and will come from the host department’s budget)
