Patriot chapels are unique. We begin each session with worship, but this is not church. We fill each session with information, but our goal is not so much education as it is motivation. Many of our students and their families are facing incredible challenges in their lives, and we want to send a strong message about the power of Jesus Christ to invade any environment and to change any circumstance.

Each semester we hear from a number of inspiring speakers. Chapel guests have included a finalist on ABC’s The Voice, the first blind active duty officer in military history, a world famous magician, and an emergency-room doctor who finds time to feed people in Syria.

Our chapel guests all have this in common: they have worked very hard to get where they are, and they have determined to live for Jesus Christ no matter what it takes. For our students, chapel is an incredible opportunity to be motivated, inspired, and changed.
