Listeners will be challenged to dig deeper into Scripture and think broadly and deeply about God’s work around the world. Committed to the study and practice of the Word of God, the University welcomes the opportunity to reach new audiences and encourage the evaluation of biblical principles and teachings from a wide variety of speakers.
Cedarville welcomes speakers from various backgrounds to its chapel services. Individuals like Joni Earekson Tada, CEO of Joni and Friends International Disability Center, offer valuable insight on how Christians can apply their faith in real-world situations to address critical issues that affect our world. Others such as Michael Gerson, former presidential speechwriter for President George W. Bush, reveal the unique ways Christians can make an impact in professional occupations. And speakers such as Palmer Chinchen, author of “True Religion,” encourage the Christian community to actively engage culture through radical living and commitment to Christ.
Robert Rohm, vice president for Christian Ministries at Cedarville University, said that WEEC approached Cedarville about airing the chapel messages on the station in response to the recent closing of the CDR Radio Network, the former media ministry of the University that was sold to the Educational Media Foundation in 2011. Chapel podcasts are available on Cedarville’s website, but Rohm said that the WEEC broadcast will enable the University to reach new audiences that might not necessarily listen to the online recordings.
“The broadcast provides a unique opportunity for more people to be able to listen to the chapel program, to know about Cedarville’s mission, to pray for us and to share in the daily blessing that we have,” Rohm said. He said that the heartbeat of Cedarville is the commitment to the study and practice of the Word of God and that sharing God’s Word through chapel services and encouraging the local church is central to the University’s focus and mission.
WEEC began airing the chapel services on March 12, 2012. For more information on Cedarville’s chapel services, visit Cedarville University Chapel.
