Purpose of Chapel

Chapel is an integral part of the Judson University experience, and, hence, is required of all students. Typical chapel content ranges from Scripture studies to issue-oriented presentations to mini-concerts by guest artists to student-led praise and worship services—all done so that the name of Jesus would be magnified and so that the body of Christ as represented by the students, faculty, staff, and administration of Judson University might be inspired to love Jesus more passionately, encouraged to trust Him more completely, and challenged to serve Him more faithfully.

Judson University’s Chapel program provides for the Judson community the opportunity to fortify the fusion of reason (as defined by academics) and revelation (as defined by Christianity) throughout the week by affording opportunities for worship.  We meet for chapel in order to nourish the spiritual lives of (primarily) students amidst academic pursuits.

Having Trouble with Presence?

Sometimes there are issues with any platform. Here is how Presence suggests you address any page glitches you may have:

  1. The hard logout function so that you can log back in. Can you log in after you’ve tried the hard logout? https://judsonu.presence.io/account/logout
  2. They recommend trying on a different browser (try incognito)
  3. And then trying it on a different device.

If this does not fix the issue, take a screenshot and send Chris Lash an email describing your issue.
