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.


Chapel programs exist to create a consistent rhythm of intentional worship opportunities for undergraduate students that encourage and promote the College’s values and convictions of holistic formation by means of a diverse, relevant, and challenging curriculum utilizing gifted speakers, creative arts, and Christian practices.

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
