Our computer science students have been involved in a very exciting project, combining their vocation with their passion for the Gospel. They have created a smartphone application that can be used as an evangelism and discipleship tool for sharing the Gospel with unreached people groups who have little to no written language. The app was tested last summer in Kenya and Uganda, and they expect to release a final version this year.
Theologically rich worship, solid biblical exposition, inspiring testimonies, and the coming together of our campus community make chapel one of the most important times for our students during their 1,000 days on campus. This spring, I hope you will join us in chapel via livestream for my series in Ephesians, and to hear from such outstanding speakers as Sam Allberry, former Cedarville visiting professor and global speaker for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries; Cedarville alumna and best-selling author Dannah Gresh; and Dr. Al Mohler, President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Dr. Dan DeWitt, Director of the Center for Biblical Apologetics and Public Christianity and Associate Professor of Applied Theology and Apologetics at Cedarville University, has earned double honors for his first children’s book, The Friend Who Forgives. This story about the friendship of Jesus and Peter was honored by Christianity Today and the Gospel Coalition. Read more about Dr. DeWitt’s new children’s book in a recent PR release.
It was a joy to have our Trustees with us in chapel today, as they were on campus for their annual midyear meeting. As we continued in our ID: In Christ series, we came to Ephesians 4:25–5:2, discovering practical application of what it means to live out our identity in Christ.
The Apostle Paul provides a list of things we should not do, and then some that we should do. As followers of Jesus Christ, our desire should be to live as imitators of God, motivated by our love for Christ.
Join us as examine what it looks like to be a mature follower of God.
This year, we hosted our largest missions conference ever, with 100 missions organizations and more than 50 missionaries on campus. Dr. Kevin Ezell of the North American Mission Board and Cedarville’s own Dr. Matt Bennett, Assistant Professor of Missions and Theology, challenged students to not just take the Gospel to places far away, but to live with Gospel purpose and passion wherever He leads them.

It was great to return to Monday chapel after a bit of a break, continuing our ID: in Christ series in Ephesians. We discovered in Ephesians 4:17–24 that to realize our true identity in Christ, we first must change our thinking. Renewed thinking leads to renewed living.
What we genuinely believe about something affects our actions and how we live. If I believe a stove is hot, I will not touch it. If I believe I am a new creation because of Jesus Christ, I will strive to live a life that honors Him.
We must reject our old self, renew our minds daily, and then embrace our new self. Join us for “We Are New Creations in Christ” as we discover how to change our thinking to embrace fully our new identity in Christ.
Dear friends and partners in ministry,
We have compiled the 2018 Cedarville University Highlights of the Year into an online resource that I think you’ll find interesting and encouraging.
Along with a record enrollment and strong financial footing, the Highlights of the Year celebrates three significant academic advancements, the impact of chapel and global outreach, vibrant student community, and a new master facility plan. In each of these, I see God’s hand of faithfulness on us as we continue preparing students for vocational distinction and lifelong impact for Him.
I pray these highlights are a blessing and encouragement to you as you pause to reflect on the tremendous ways God has blessed Cedarville. And I ask you to stand with us in 2019 as we prepare the next generation to stand boldly for the Word of the God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ — in their careers, in their families, in their communities, and in their ministries.

The start to 2020 will bring plenty of opportunities to connect with Cedarville. We will host prospective students and families on January 17 for CU Lead on January 18, a one-day conference that equips students to “Lead Like Jesus.” On January 24, current and future worship and music leaders will come to Cedarville for the Worship 4:24 Conference to learn how to lead their congregations in praising and honoring King Jesus. And then, we’ll have another opportunity for prospective students and families to learn about Cedarville at CU Monday on Presidents Day, February 17.
