Christians having the freedom to exercise their moral beliefs and religious convictions in the workplace is a growing concern, particularly for those employed in health care. Cedarville University’s Center for Bioethics and Center for Political Studies will hold the Clinical Ethics and Conscience Rights Conference June 6-8 to address the rights of health care workers who object to medications or procedures due to religious or moral convictions. Princeton University political philosopher Dr. Robert George will keynote the opening session.
On May 4, we celebrated the achievements of 815 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral graduates during the University’s 123rd Commencement ceremonies. Before 7,000 guests and many more joining via livestream, we challenged these graduates to represent Christ well and use their vocation as a platform for ministry. Clara Costello, Justin Lough, and Jocelyn Quirple were honored as this year’s President’s Trophy recipients. Graduations are joyful and bittersweet. While we have grown to love these students during their time with us, we look forward with great anticipation to how God will use them for His good purposes and the advancement of the Gospel. You can experience some of the special moments from commencement yourself in a highlights video.

Dove Award-nominated singer and songwriter Andrew Peterson blessed us with two days of inspiring messages and music on February 12-13, which reminded us that our brokenness is the place where God pours out His grace. Andrew’s rendition of Is He Worthy?, which is based on the throne room vision of Revelation 5, was a powerful reminder that Jesus alone is worthy to rule and rescue His people. We are very grateful for Andrew’s ministry to Cedarville University. To watch both of his messages in full, visit the chapel archive.
