Experience Fall Bible Conference With Your Student

August 19, 2019

Chapel speaker and audienceWe'll kick off the fall semester this week with our annual Fall Bible Conference — always a highlight of the year.

This year's speaker will be Dean Inserra, Lead Pastor of City Church in Tallahassee, Florida. He has titled his messages "The Process," speaking from 1 Corinthians 2:9-3:3, and he will challenge students to continue in Christian growth and maturity.

The conference starts Monday night at 7 p.m. and continues Tuesday and Wednesday at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., and Thursday at 10 a.m. It will be an incredible time of worship and spiritual renewal.

Want to be a part of this incredible experience yourself? You can livestream all services via chapel livestreaming or watch later from the chapel archive. It's a great way to stay connected with your student! You can also download the new CU Chapel+ app to your smartphone to access live chapels on the go.

Tips for a Smooth College Drop-Off

August 14, 2019

Mom dropping off daughter

From one parent to another … dropping your child off at college is hard (especially if it’s your first time!). As you prepare to bring your student to Cedarville to begin his or her college career, please be assured of two things:

  • Your son or daughter rests securely in God’s hand. He has great plans for them (Jer. 29:11) and will never leave them alone (Heb. 13:5).
  • Cedarville University will do everything we can to love and support your child — personally, academically, and spiritually. We are so honored that you have entrusted your child to us, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

A few years ago, I came across an article — College Move-In Day Is Around the Corner — that I thought might be helpful as you prepare for Getting Started Weekend. It gives some great ideas of what to expect as you drop your student off, as well as some tips on how to make it go well. Be warned — it might make you tear up, but hopefully it’ll help you as you make this next big step in your role as a parent.

We’re looking forward to having you and your student on campus very soon. And don't worry, Mom and Dad, you've got this!

Jeff Beste
Executive Director of Alumni and Parent Engagement (and a Cedarville dad!)

P.S. When you come to campus in a few days, be sure to stop by the Parent Tent. We would love to meet you and welcome you to Cedarville!
