Sharp Chapel Ministries

WOW – WORSHIP ON WEDNESDAY

Begun in 2002 as an intentional move to restore a weekly mid-week chapel service to the TU campus, Worship on Wednesday, affectionately known as WOW, has grown from a group of 10 worshipers to a gathering of over 200 students, staff and faculty. The noon chapel service is a Christian particular praise and worship service that meets every Wednesday during the fall and spring semesters. And, through the very generous gift of the Sharp Chapel Endowment, a catered lunch is offered to all at 12:30 pm in the Buford Atrium.

LUNCH WITH CALVIN

Lunch with Calvin began in 2005 as an opportunity for students to gather in an informal setting, around a catered lunch provided by the Chapel Endowment each Monday at noon in the Chapel’s Martha S. Canterbury Suite to read and discuss the writings of 16th century reformer John Calvin. Over the years, groups of undergraduate and graduate students have gathered to read from Calvin’s 1559 Institutes, his pastoral and ecclesiastical writings, a selection of his writings on the Christian life edited by the great 20th c Reformed theologian John Haddington Leith and most recently a systematic reading of Elsie McKee’s English translation of Calvin’s 1541 French edition of his Institutes of Christian Religion.

APOLOGETICS FOR LUNCH

Begun as a suggestion by a student in 2007, Apologetics for Lunch has been meeting weekly each Thursday at 11:45 am in the Buford Atrium of Sharp Chapel to offer lunch and an opportunity to read and study together great voices of Christian Apologetics. The weekly lunch gathering is comprised of students, staff and faculty and has engaged the writings of Timothy Keller – The Reason for God, Peter Kreeft – Socrates meets Jesus, C. S. Lewis – Mere Christianity, and The Screwtape Letters, Alister McGrath – selections from Dawkin’s God, and Surprised by Meaning, John Stott – Basic Christianity, and G.K Chesterton – Orthodoxy.

PRESBYTERIAN LEADERS AND SCHOLARS PROGRAM

“The Life of the Mind in the Service of God” (John Leith) defines the nature and intent of The Presbyterian Leaders and Scholars (PLS) program.  Presbyterian Leadership Scholars, through weekly luncheon meetings gather to pursue the knowledge and understanding of the Reformed life of faith as it challenges and encourages them to live out their calling (vocatio) in servant leadership.  Additionally, the PLS program offers a global educational opportunity for program participants to take part in a biennial traveling seminar to Scotland in order to study the important and critical history of the development of the Reformed faith as expressed in the Scottish Reformation that led to the establishment of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland.

Students who wish to apply for the Presbyterian Leaders and Scholars Program can do so through the Special Programs Application. The priority deadline for application is January 15.
