30+ NGU Students Receive Christ at Chapel

“Let’s pray that God will do a work on our campus,” Dr. Steve Crouse encouraged, as he welcomed the entire student body to North Greenville University at the first chapel of the 2017-18 school year.

And the Lord has already answered those prayers.

By the end of the morning service, more than 30 students were standing tall — all across a packed Turner Chapel — to profess that they had received Jesus Christ as their Savior during the invitation. Clapping and cheering, other students and NGU faculty and staff in the crowd expressed their excitement for the new believers.

Clayton King — teaching pastor at NewSpring Church and founder of Clayton King Ministries — had shared the message: that the biggest lie Satan tells us over and over again is that God does not love us. And to overcome that lie, we need to look to Jesus and the cross. King read from John 3.

“I enjoyed this chapel,” said Asia Overslaw (expected ’20), biology major. “[When] we have a really strong message, that’s like being at my home church.”

Chapel continues to be an integral part of students’ education at NGU, but the requirements have changed beginning this school year. Now, students are required to attend only 22 chapels per semester, instead of two per week. Regular chapels will still be held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m.

Special chapels will also be offered throughout the semester. This week, for example, the annual Ignite Conference will continue with chapels on Wednesday, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m.; Thursday, Aug. 24, at 7 p.m.; and Friday, Aug. 25, at 10 a.m.

All NGU family and friends are welcome to attend Ignite.
