Christian University Creates Digital Chapel for Online Students

ACADEME BLOG

Campbellsville University, located in Campbellsville in central Kentucky, is a Christian institution founded in 1906. It currently has an enrollment of about 3,200 students. That enrollment includes students attending two satellite campuses, in Louisville and Hodgenville, as well as students enrolled entirely in online programs.

Campbellsville has partnered with The Learning House, Inc., to offer four online associate-degree programs, a BSN completion program, and six Masters-degree programs.

The university’s administration wanted to provide online students with “access to the same spiritual growth opportunities the main campus students have.” So, Dr. Shane Garrison, “assistant professor of educational ministries and director of theology online,” was charged with developing on online chapel.

He quickly discovered, however, that there were no online chapels to provide him with a working model. The ground-breaking online chapel that he eventually developed includes three main areas—for worship, for prayer, and for Bible study.
