About the Chapel Program

The Geneva College chapel program--a weekly devotional time in which the campus community comes together in praise of God--is a vital part of the College’s educational mission. The purpose of each service is to encourage with the Word of God a community learning to serve Him in all areas of life. Messages apply deep biblical truth in a winsome way, engaging the hearts of attendees on the soul-deep issues of our time and helping them understand and apply to life the grace and glory of the risen Christ.

Scripture is central to all components of the service, including the music. We sing the Psalms of the Bible because of their unique connection to the life and ministry of Jesus and their consequent ability to unite Christians from every culture and time period.

About the Chaplain

Chapel is under the direction of Geneva’s chaplain, Pastor Rutledge “Rut” Etheridge. Following his undergrad work in theology with a pastoral studies emphasis, Rut was a high school Bible teacher in Indianapolis from 1999-2004. He earned his Master of Divinity Degree in 2006 and for seven years pastored a church in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. He started work as Geneva’s chaplain in the 2013-14 academic year. Rut is the regular speaker in chapel but we also hear from a variety of local as well as nationally known teachers and preachers.

Going to Chapel

Chapel is held in Metheny Fieldhouse every Wed. at the 10:10 a.m hour. Chapel messages are recorded each week and posted on the college website for listening. Students are required to attend but are allowed to miss 4 of the 15 services per semester. Most campus offices shut down during chapel so that as many faculty and staff as possible can attend along with the students.
