Spring Chapel To Host Speakers from Around the World

Spring 2021 ChapelJanuary 13, 2021 (Jackson, Miss.) - Belhaven University’s 2021 Spring Chapel will host speakers from around the world. Because of COVID-19 restrictions chapel has been digital for a year, but that obstacle has turned into an opportunity.

For the Spring 2021 series, Belhaven University President Dr. Roger Parrott has assembled some of the most significant Christian leaders that will challenge, excite, and inform.

Dr. Parrott said, “Considering all the limitations of the semester ahead that keep us from meeting together, the Lord encouraged me that this could be our best semester of chapel, because virtually we could bring speakers from around the world to Belhaven. We could never get people who have such ministry reach if we attempted to schedule them in person!”

Each week, a new chapel video will be sent to students, staff, and faculty. The video will also be available for family and friends of the University on the Belhaven University Chapel Blog and the Belhaven University Facebook page.

“I hope you’ll engage with chapel this semester for an experience like no other, as we hear from some significant Christian leaders from across the spectrum of the Church,’ said Dr. Parrott.
