Temporary Chapel Information - Spring 2022

COVID-19 Adjustments to Chapel Policy

The JBU chapel program has returned to normal requirements and indoor services with some adjustments due to COVID-19.

 All students will attend chapel in the Cathedral.
Masks will be required during all services.

Normal chapel attendance policy came back into effect in Fall 2021 and will continue in the Spring 2022 semester:

  • Chapel services will be held each Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. The Gathering will be held Sunday nights at 9 p.m. in the Cathedral of the Ozarks. Additional chapel opportunities are listed as they become available. (A schedule of chapel services is available to students here.)

  • All full-time students (12 hours or more) and residential (on-campus) students are required to attend 21 chapels per semester (plus any they were short the prior semester).

  • At least 15 of those must be weekday “regular” chapels (generally Tuesdays and Thursdays). The remaining six (6) requirements may be any combination of regular chapels and/or services that are designated as “additional” chapel events, such as The Gathering (Sunday night student-led chapel) and other forums approved by the Office of Christian Formation.

  • Part-time students (those taking 11 or fewer hours) are required to make up any chapel requirements which they were short the prior semester.

  • Students will use their ID cards to scan for credit. Chapel credits will be posted in the online chapel record on EagleNet. If it is not correct as of the processing date shown, the student should contact the Office of Christian Formation as soon as possible by selecting the "Questions about Chapel Credit" link on their chapel attendance page on EagleNet.

  • If for some reason a student will not be able to attend chapel, the normal exemption policy is in effect.

  • To access more information about chapel, search for "Chapel Attendance" on EagleNet or go to All Pages > Chapel > Chapel Attendance.
