New Year Off to a Great Start!

September 5, 2017

Getting Started 2015The 2017–18 academic year is off to a great start! Nearly 1,000 freshmen and transfer students participated in Getting Started Weekend August 18–19, kicking off the academic year and their Cedarville experience.

As with every year, Cedarville started the semester with the Fall Bible Conference. This year we welcomed Mark Vroegop, Lead Pastor of College Park Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, and Cedarville alumnus and trustee, as the conference speaker. Vroegop challenged our students on how they can defeat sin in their life before it destroys them. God is already working in the lives of this year's students. What a great way to start the year! (To watch any of the conference sessions, visit our chapel archive.)

Giving students the opportunity to sit under the teaching of nationally recognized Bible speakers, as well as challenging them with highly regarded academic programs, sets Cedarville University apart! As you guide your student through the college search process, discuss the importance of higher education with a biblical worldview and how it can impact them. Visit us to see the difference a rigorous academic program delivered in an authentic Christian community can make.

The Way of Wisdom – President's New Chapel Series

August 25, 2017

Proverbs way of wisdom graphic

This year, our President, Dr. Thomas White, will preach a 20-sermon series through the book of Proverbs with the University family, starting this Monday in chapel. The series is titled “The Way of Wisdom.” The writer of Proverbs, imparting wisdom to his son, contrasts two paths:

  • Those who choose the way of folly will suffer consequences that ultimately lead to death.
  • Those who choose the way of wisdom will enjoy a life characterized by trusting in God.

As a university family, we are excited to walk through this challenging book together as we seek to be a place and people who walk in the way of wisdom. Watch the video below for an exciting introduction to this series.

As you consider Cedarville University for your student, one of the best ways to get to know us is to experience chapel. You can join us for the Proverbs series (and every other chapel) by accessing the chapel livestream every Monday morning at 10 a.m. EDT/EST. You'll join hundreds of voices in worship to our great God, and then dig deeply into His Word. Or, you can visit the chapel archive to view past messages of this series, or any other chapel speaker.
