What We Do

University chapels and conferences are intended to bring the Biola community together regularly for worship, spiritual nurture and education regarding relevant issues facing us in our lives. The overall program brings a unique distinction to the ethos of Biola as a Christian university.

Due to the central and significant nature of that ethos, attendance at chapel is required of all students.

Open Hours

Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

Summer/Interterm hours vary (TBA)
