As we continue our series in the book of Proverbs, we come to a passage that’s most likely very familiar to most of us — perhaps many of us have even memorized it. But the real question is, have we dug deep into these verses and applied them to our lives?
In Proverbs 3:5-6 we find three practical instructions on how we should live. Join the Cedarville family as we dive into these verses and learn to trust, humble ourselves, and submit our will. How do we pursue the way of wisdom? First we must trust. I pray we trust wisely.
There is now another way for you to be blessed through Cedarville University chapel messages. Access the “Cedarville Chapel” playlist on our YouTube channel, then scroll through the playlist to find a recent message that interests you. It’s easier than ever to access, view, and share what is happening in chapel at Cedarville.
As always, you can also watch chapel live each weekday at 10 a.m. through our livestreaming option or access a chapel message from our chapel archive.
We hope you take advantage of these opportunities to experience the powerful teaching and dynamic worship that our students enjoy daily at Cedarville University.
I am excited to welcome hundreds of alumni and parents to campus October 6-7 for Homecoming and Parents Weekend 2017. It’s always a highlight of the year for my family and me. I always look forward to hearing what God is doing in and through the lives of our incredible graduates. We also know that some of the alumni and parents who come to campus bring heavy burdens and spiritual needs. Please pray that God will use the activities of the weekend and the interactions with the Cedarville family to encourage, refresh, and renew those who join us.

A new Certificate in Medical Spanish will equip students preparing for a healthcare profession to serve Hispanic populations and Spanish-speaking patients in their own language. Taking practical language courses offered by our Spanish language faculty, Cedarville students who add the Certificate in Medical Spanish to their degree program will show future employers their level of commitment and excellent preparation for serving this population. Most importantly, these Cedarville graduates will be even more equipped for Gospel impact in their vocation and ministry.
Our School of Nursing and School of Pharmacy are equipping competent, caring healthcare professionals for service throughout the United States and around the globe. We desire to see every student well-grounded in the Bible, and able to integrate their faith with their profession. But our nursing and pharmacy professors took that commitment one step further by offering a unique healthcare-focused evangelism program on campus called the Saline Process. And they invited others studying in the healthcare field as well – psychology, premed, and allied health majors – to join them for this training in August.
On September 11 in chapel, we honored Pete Reese for his 29 years of service to Cedarville and enjoyed an afternoon reception to celebrate his retirement. You can’t think about athletics or athletic facilities at Cedarville without thinking about Pete. He has served in roles ranging from Athletic Director from 1998 to 2008, to Head Men’s Baseball Coach from 1989-91, to his current role of Supervisor of Outdoor Athletic Facilities since 2008. As a student, Pete was a dominant force on the Cedarville Yellow Jackets basketball teams from 1956 to 1960. In 1984, he became a charter member of the Cedarville University Athletic Hall of Fame and his number 43 was retired by the Hall in 2005. Each year, a male and female Yellow Jacket senior athlete is honored with the Pete and Joyce Reese Award, named in honor of Pete and his wife, Joyce, who is also a Cedarville Hall of Famer. Thanks, Pete, for your inspiring performance as a player, your dedication as a coach, and your faithful service leading Cedarville Athletics. We ask God’s abundant blessings on Joyce and Pete as they enter this next phase of life and ministry.
Cedarville professors have become go-to sources for local and national media, whether the topic is Ebola, North Korean diplomacy, the Trump White House, or police and community relations. They not only share their expertise and professionalism, but also have opportunities to present a biblical worldview on the critical issues of our day. Now a new resource will help us do that job even better. Cedarville’s new broadcast room — developed in collaboration with the Department of Communication and staffed by our own students — will enable us to create live interviews with media all around the world from right here on campus. It’s a big step forward in our efforts to share the excellence and Gospel-focus of a Cedarville education.
Cedarville trustee Mark Vroegop, lead pastor at College Park Church in Indianapolis, inspired our students at Fall Bible Conference with his messages on the dangers of sin, and how as Christians we need to actively fight and be victorious over the flesh every day. His messages were challenging, forthright, and humble, and we think you’ll be deeply moved and motivated to engage your own battle with the power of temptation as you listen to these messages on our chapel archive.
There are now 3,963 students – undergraduate, graduate, and online – being equipped at Cedarville University for godly service, vocational distinction, and cultural engagement. That is a humbling and amazing figure. We have been blessed with a tremendous responsibility to mentor, instruct, and challenge these students to strive for excellence in their character and their careers, and to see all of life as an opportunity to make an impact for the Kingdom of God. We thank King Jesus for this remarkable stewardship, and ask that you’d pray for us to handle it well, by His power and His leading.

How we handle wealth is a test of the true condition of our heart — think of it as a mirror that reflects our most inward motivations and desires. Wealth is a good resource to steward, but it’s a horrible god to worship. But when we find our satisfaction in Jesus Christ, good stewardship becomes easy. Join us for week two of our “The Way of Wisdom” series as we walk through the book of Proverbs and discover five principles of how we as Christ-followers should handle the wealth that God gives us.
