Chapel is designed to intentionally develop the life of our community through meaningful worship, inspirational messages, opportunities to share our spiritual journeys, and helpful, biblically-based instruction.
Every fall, students are invited to join a WorldSERVE team and take a yearlong discipleship journey which includes a short-term service project. The main objective is that students would be discipled here, in order to make disciples in the nations. It’s really not about the “trip.” It’s about the discipleship journey, both in us and to the ends of the earth.
Strike teams are made up of volunteers who are ready to respond to needs in our community by serving alongside businesses, schools, churches, non-profit organizations, and individuals. To participate, students can sign up to receive notifications (text and email) of a time, place, and organization that has reached out to Simpson University for help.
International Worker-In-Residence (IWIR)
Our International Worker-In-Residence is a career overseas worker with the Christian and Missionary Alliance who comes to the Simpson community to teach and develop students during his or her year away from the field. The IWIRs are vision-casters, recruiters and trainers for cross-cultural ministry, with a focus on the Christian and Missionary Alliance.
Global Impact Committee
The Global Impact Committee increases student awareness of world missions at home and abroad by sponsoring a number of events throughout the year. Members organize prayer meetings, plan chapel programs that spotlight world missions, and plan and host Global Impact week, which features missionary speakers, chapel programs, and international dinner, and other activities.
We believe that prayer is powerful, a vital part of building God's Kingdom, and seeing his will accomplished here on earth. Prayer Leaders are current students who want to see God's kingdom come in the lives of their peers through prayer, support, and soulcare. There are prayer leaders assigned to each res-hall floor and to the commuter students and they are excited to do what they can to meet the needs of their fellow students.
