Shortess Chapel

God is glorified in everything. When Solomon built the temple, he brought forth the best. We want to do that as well.


As we approach our 100th anniversary, Shortess, the primary gathering place on campus, has been renovated to include needed audio, video, aesthetics and accessibility updates including:


  • Modernized and updated floors, stage, and lighting

  • Audio and video updates

  • Restroom expansion

  • Accessibility updates

  • Painting and décor updates



"These improvements to Shortess are a reminder that we are blessed. Blessed to worship an amazing God in a personal way — a God who has provided resources, technology, and a comfortable facility to enjoy as we magnify Him.”


–Naomi Balk, student   

With your help, we met our goal! The beautiful Shortess Chapel renovation was completed September 2018!
