2019 Highlights of the Year
Students' lives are being changed through the powerful teaching of God’s Word and intentional discipleship with godly mentors. They are challenged to live each day boldly, purposely on mission for Jesus Christ.
Fall Bible Conference
On the final evening of Fall Bible Conference, approximately 50 students came forward to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Nearly 200 made other decisions to honor Christ with their lives. The start of each semester is an intentional time to challenge students to evaluate their faith and consider God’s call on their lives.
Chapel: The Heartbeat of Cedarville
Daily chapel continues to be the heartbeat of campus. During his weekly chapel series this academic year, Dr. White is leading students through the book of Nehemiah, following the theme of "Faithful" and examining how we have a promise-keeping God even though we are a promise-breaking people.
The Warren and Betty Wiersbe Library and Reading Room
We opened and dedicated the Warren and Betty Wiersbe Library and Reading Room during homecoming weekend. Holding Dr. Warren Wiersbe’s vast collection of commentaries, nonfiction publications, and works of literature, this library has already been a tremendous resource for our students as they study God’s Word and prepare for ministry.
#CUGO Continues Our Gospel Focus
At Cedarville University, we want every student to take a missions trip before graduation and experience the joy of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a cross-cultural setting. Our Global Outreach department is working toward making that happen. We’re sending out students to touch a needy world with the message of hope found in Jesus.

Growing Academic Offerings
As we continue to seek to offer an excellent education in submission to biblical authority, God has been faithful to allow us to offer new innovative and in-demand programs. We are blessed to equip students to use their vocations as a ministry for Christ.

Stewarding His Gifts
We are grateful for the gifts that God has given to us as a University, and we seek to steward them well — for His glory, not our own.
This fall, we experienced our 13th-consecutive record enrollment. As other universities are closing their doors due to dwindling numbers, God is continuing to bring students to Cedarville who desire an excellent education grounded in biblical truths.
The Lorne C. Scharnberg Business Center
At homecoming, we were blessed to receive the largest financial gift in the University’s history, $10 million from the Scharnberg family from Des Moines, Iowa, in honor of former trustee and longtime Cedarville supporter Lorne Scharnberg. The new School of Business Administration building will be named the Lorne C. Scharnberg Business Center in recognition of Lorne’s more than 25 years of faithful service to Cedarville University.
Embarking on the Journey
We embarked on a 10-year campus master plan, which will add six new facilities to campus, increase the number and scope of our academic programs, and enlarge our capacity to make Cedarville financially accessible to more families.
