Chapel and The Gathering Services at GCU

GCU desires to come alongside students as they navigate through the college experience. Whether a student is here for one semester or four years, our hope is to intentionally provide opportunities for him/her to explore who Jesus is, grow in a relationship with him and ultimately to become a co-laborer with Christ.

Grand Canyon University offers weekly Chapel services where staff, faculty and students come together to worship, hear God's Word and connect with one another.

The Gathering is an evening service for students that incorporates student leadership into an environment where the student body can connect and grow together as they hear from God's Word, pray for one another and worship together.
