We believe that our spiritual pursuits inspire service. The Chapel is thus a servant to the common good, not just of the High Point University campus but the wider High Point community and the world. One-hundred percent of the offering collected during our weekly services goes to serving the people of High Point. The Board of Stewards are a group of student leaders who are responsible helping the Chapel Office shape interactive and ecumenical worship services, lead service projects that inspire their peers to be the hands and feet of Christ, and steward weekly offering into the High Point community.
2017, the Board of Stewards raised our $15,000 in the form of clothes and toys to the Salvation Army Angel Tree Project, providing gifts to more than 75 in-need children of the High Point community.
Students can apply to be a part of the Board of Stewards in the fall of each academic year. Members are selected based upon demonstration of leadership qualities, desire to serve and commitment to Christian discipleship. For more information about becoming a member of the Board of Stewards, contact Tess May (President) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Each week, services in the Charles E. Hayworth Sr. Memorial Chapel are packed with students, faculty, and staff who commune together in a time of Christian fellowship. Without question or exception, these Chapel services nourish our souls and feed our hearts. These stewards of Christian service stand as examples to the rest of the campus. We are grateful for their commitment to the University, and we give them our full support.” —Dr. Nido Qubein, HPU President
