Phil and Mandy Shaffer are fifth-generation farmers and parents of two Cedarville graduates and one soon-to-be graduate. They live out their vocation to the glory of God and have chosen to generously contribute the proceeds from their corn harvest to Cedarville every year. We shared the Shaffers’ story at a recent Farmers Night event here on campus. Get to know the Shaffers in a video, and you, too, will be blessed by this couple’s humble commitment to Cedarville and their passion to honor Christ with all that He has entrusted to them.

More than 150 students, faculty, and staff recently returned from four domestic and 11 international spring break missions trips. Reports are coming in of opportunities to share the Gospel, serve the less fortunate, and pray with people to receive Christ as Savior. I am so encouraged by the sacrificial choices our students make to serve the Lord through Global Outreach during their breaks from campus.
Yesterday we returned to our ID: in Christ series in chapel, arriving at the last chapter in the book of Ephesians. Ephesians 6:1-9 continues the focus we started last week around relationships within households. Last week we explored the responsibilities for husbands and wives in a Christ-honoring relationship. Yesterday, we studied Paul’s instructions to parents and children and masters and slaves. In all of these relationships, God calls us to faithfully obey and exercise human authority in ways that glorify God.
- Children obey and honor your parents.
- Parents do not provoke but train your children.
- Slaves obey and respect their masters.
- Masters do not threaten and treat their slaves well.
Join the Cedarville University family for this week’s sermon, “ID: We are Submissive in Christ.”

If you’re a homeschooling parent, you probably have specific concerns when considering where to send your son or daughter to college.
I know. I’m a homeschooling dad.
I recently recorded a video in which I highlight what makes Cedarville University homeschool-friendly. Watch it and you’ll discover how at Cedarville, your student will join many other homeschool students on a vibrant Christian campus. He or she will be challenged with rigorous academics and encouraged through daily chapel, Bible minor courses, and intentional discipleship to grow deeper in their faith.
I invite you to visit us and see for yourself what makes Cedarville a homeschool-friendly university.
Today we were honored to welcome more than 200 members of next year’s incoming freshman class and their families to chapel as part of their All-Access orientation visit.
We continued in our ID: in Christ series, coming to Ephesians 5:22-33 where we discover God’s perfect design for marriage. This is a difficult passage for some, and it’s no coincidence that it follows one about being filled with the Spirit. It is only through the Spirit that we can live out God’s plan for a Christian marriage. Ultimately, our earthly marriages should reflect the greatest love story ever written — the love that Jesus Christ has for His bride, the Church.
Join us as we explore how marriage represents the beautiful mystery of the Gospel.
