Student Ministries

Chapel, Prayer, Worship Arts

Tim McCarthy,
Associate Director of Student Ministries for Chapel Programs

The mission of TWU’s Chapel, Prayer, and Worship Arts Ministries is to exalt the triune God through biblical, Christ-centred worship and prayer and to inspire students to pursue a lifestyle of worship that glorifies Him in thought, deed, word, and attitude. Trinity Western desires to be a community treasuring Christ above all, seeking to provide a welcoming, engaging, and thoughtful venue in which the whole community has the opportunity to experience the manifest presence of God. Worship is an opportunity to center work and study within the context of devotion to God.

While TWU’s chapel program is voluntary, students are encouraged to make chapel an important part of their spiritual growth. Chapel worship is largely led by students, so for many it is a significant opportunity for leadership development. Students participate through music, drama, dance, and sound and media teams. Music team members are selected by audition in the spring, though some positions may be available in the fall for new students.

In addition, TWU provides many opportunities for students to grow in their understanding and experience of prayer, so that they are more fully equipped for the present work of God in their lives and for the path they select after TWU.
