On March 27, Dr. R. Albert Mohler will be the featured speaker for our “God Revealed” apologetics conference. Not a stranger to the Cedarville family, Dr. Mohler serves as president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. His presentations will focus on how God revealed Himself in Creation and in the Scriptures. If you are unable to make it to campus, please join us via livestream video for his 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. keynote addresses and the 6 p.m. “Ask Anything” session.
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.
The Cedarville Center for Biblical Apologetics and Public Christianity will host its annual apologetics conference, this year on March 27, and feature the president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. R. Albert Mohler. The “God Revealed” conference will challenge you to think biblically about issues Christians face in today’s society. No registration is required, but a limited number of backstage passes are available. If you’re in the area, please plan to join us!
It can be a little crazy and definitely a lot of fun. But more than that, CedarMania is our chance to share the Gospel with the next generation. This year’s CedarMania takes places March 23, and registration is underway now through March 15. Our current students, who serve as counselors for the day, do an amazing job investing in these young people with Christ’s love and God’s Word. Encourage middle school and high school students you know to sign up today for this tremendously powerful event where they have a chance to hear the Gospel and experience the community Cedarville offers.
Dove Award-nominated recording artist, songwriter, filmmaker, and award-winning author Andrew Peterson will perform at Cedarville on February 12. He will also speak in chapel February 12 and 13. Andrew’s music focuses on the gravity of the crucifixion and the power of the resurrection. We look forward to having this gifted and inspiring musician and writer on campus next week. The concert is free and open to the public.
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.
Watch the video below for highlights of this year’s Missions Conference.
In a few short days, 101 missionaries and 54 mission agencies will gather on campus for the largest Missions Conference ever hosted by Cedarville University. Dr. Kevin Ezell, President of the North American Mission Board (NAMB), will be our keynote speaker and Dr. Matt Bennett, Assistant Professor of Missions and Theology, will give the closing message. My hope and prayer is that God will work in our midst in a powerful way, calling Cedarville students to a lifetime of Gospel purpose at their jobs, in their neighborhoods, and in places where the name of Jesus has not yet been proclaimed.
Chapel sessions will be livestreamed at 10 AM and 7 PM each day.
The Worship 4:24 Conference returns to campus on January 25-26 at Cedarville University in the Dixon Ministry Center. This year’s conference will have a night of worship, more than 100 breakout sessions, and for the first time, the Weekend of Worship for high schools students who have a heart for worship and have enjoyed Cedarville’s summer worship academic camp. Dove Award-winning singer-songwriter Meredith Andrews will be the special musical guest. We look forward to hosting this event, which encourages and develops our music and worship students and lifts up the name of King Jesus.
One of our goals at Cedarville is to develop lifelong learners and leaders. Every student at Cedarville will hear, many times during their “1,000 days” on our campus, that they can lead through stewardship, influence, and service. This leadership instruction is formalized in the plenary sessions and practical workshops that make up the annual CU LEADership Conference, which now serves well over 1,000 current Cedarville students and their high school counterparts. This year’s keynote speaker, U.S. Air Force Col. Todd Fogle ’92, commander of the 492nd Special Operations Wing at Hurlburt Field near Mary Esther, Florida, will challenge the students to lead with courage in their homes, their schools, their workplaces, and their communities. Encourage high school students to join us for CU LEAD on Saturday, January 19! Registration is now open.
Join us live or online on Sunday, December 2, at 6 p.m. for our annual Community Christmas Celebration. This concert has become a tradition for the more than 3,000 who attend every year and begin their Christmas season enjoying choral and instrumental music worshiping through inspiring renditions of classic carols.
Please join us for this musical celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. If you’re not able to join us in person, view the concert via livestream.
