Our seminary meets together for chapel once a week to hear professors, special guests, and students preach from the Word of God. In addition, Seminary students are able to attend chapel with the rest of the University on the other week days. These chapels intentionally keep the pulpit hot and provide an opportunity for us every week to unite around the Word in worship.
Every year the University’s Concert, Opera & Drama series brings world-class performances—from Shakespeare to one-man shows, from grand opera to piano quintets—to the BJU and Greenville communities.
