Chapel & Religious Life

Annual Prayer Breakfast

For 42 consecutive years, High Point University has brought the wider High Point faith community together for the Annual Prayer Breakfast. Each year, the annual event includes an inspiring message, special music provided by the HPU Chapel Choir directed by Dr. Marc Foster, as well as a silent prayer held in memory of alumni, members of the university family and the community, as well as other friends who have passed away during the past year.

This event sharpens the spiritual senses that joy and peace might take root during the Christmas season.

Please visit the Prayer Breakfast website for more information.


2013 – A special message was delivered by Rev. Dr. Don Wilton, who is the senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Spartanburg, S.C. and also serves as a minister to the Rev. Billy Graham. Wilton’s message focused on the concept of life after death and the meaning of Christmas, as well as the significance of Nelson Mandela’s life and death on this occasion.
