Spiritual Formation and Chapel


The mission of Vanguard University is to pursue knowledge, cultivate character, deepen faith, and equip each student for a Spirit-empowered life of Christ-centered leadership and service.

It is through spiritual formation that all of this is possible—the chapel services, discipleship programming, and outreach opportunities at Vanguard strengthen your foundation in Christ.

Chapel & Spiritual Formation Content

The Spiritual Formation department's hope is to not only empower our students through chapel and discipleship efforts, but to provide resources for those outside our community as well. Below are link to devotional guides, audio recordings of our chapel speakers, and much more. We hope you engage with the material and find is helpful in your spiritual journey.

Chapel Audio Files are located here.

Walk with us through the 40-day season of Lent by following this a devotional guide that small groups and individuals are working through this year. The booklet includes weekly themes that start on Sundays, Scripture readings, prayers, and questions for reflection. You can download the devotional here.

Chapel Gatherings

Chapel Services are offered throughout the week on campus, and offer challenging messages, impactful worship, and an environment designed to help you grow spiritually. Students can contribute to chapel and get involved.

Worship is an integral part of the VU community and foundational to the spiritual, intellectual, and social development that students will experience during their time at VU. Chapel services are intended as a time for the VU community to pursue God together and learn to respond to His leading through the power of the Holy Spirit.
