��At the Chapel, we emphasize that life is all about relationships. Our staff is made up of teams that work together--and that
We see ministry at the Chapel as a calling rather than a job—a calling to equip others, giving ministry away so that the diverse gifts of the Chapel family can be leveraged to make disciples. If you want to explore whether God �may be calling you to vocational ministry at the Chapel, we encourage you to review our open positions and submit an application.
