Today, we will take an inside look at our beautiful chapel, which was built in 2009. The building was inspired by theFirst Baptist Church of Providence, Rhode Island, built in 1775, which is known as the first Baptist Church in the United States. The two buildings share more than just looks; they share the same foundations of faith and sacrifice that were a part of both building's construction and a miraculous display of God's provision and support from the community.

Something very special about our Chapel is that it can be seen from miles around the area, like a city on a hill (Matthew 5:14). The building is actually larger than the original building in Rhode Island. It covers 80,000-square-feet and stands 192 feet tall (585 meters). It was intentionally made the tallest building on campus since it represents the most important part of our University: our faith and purpose.


 

On the first floor we will find the welcome desk, where you can ask questions about the building or the events going on. The sanctuary is where the weekly chapel services take place and it has room for nearly 1,500 students.

There are several Prayer Request boxes distributed around the DBU campus. All requests placed inside this box are sent to the Prayer Intercessory Ministry, which can be found on the lower level of the Chapel. 

The Graduate School of Ministry is located on the third floor along with more classrooms.

To complete our Chapel tour, we come to the lower level. Here we can find the Rogers Theater, the Estes Prayer Room and Prayer Intercessory Ministry, Campus Security, and the Sadler Hall. The Sadler Hall hosts many events during the year like the International Graduation at the end of each semester (Click HERE to the see last year's International Graduation)

Finally, we find several classrooms that provide a place for classes related mainly with ministry, discipleship, and evangelism.
