Life Pacific College: Established in 1923

Spiritual Formation

Life Pacific College exists for the transformational development of students into leaders, therefore we consider each student’s spiritual formation with high regard. We hope to provide opportunities where they will earnestly discover who they are in Christ and grow with one another.

The chapel program at Life Pacific College seeks to develop and equip students to become Spirit-formed, authentic, creative, healthy ministers who extend the Kingdom of God. Chapels give students an opportunity to receive personally so they can give at their local churches and in their communities. The time also serves as a vehicle for students, staff and faculty to be in community with one another. It is our heart to train students as they earnestly seek an intimate relationship with Christ.

Our Purpose

  • To see students connect with God in a personal way
  • To see students connect with each other, staff, and faculty for the sake of unity and direction
  • To creatively train students to become active participants in the local church and community
  • To allow God to bring change and healing to brokenness and pain

Chapel takes place every Tuesday and Wednesday 10:20–11:20am
