Daily Chapel has been a valued Oklahoma Christian tradition since the university began in 1950. It provides a time to focus on our Creator, worship together as a community, deepen faith, and seek inspiration.
In addition to "Big Chapel," offered each weekday at 11:00 am in Hardeman Auditorium, OC also offers specialized gatherings like Missions Chapel, Seekers Chapel, Women's Chapel, Great Songs Chapel and Departmental Chapels.
Chapel programs are part of the "Worship" dimension in OC's ETHOS Spiritual Life initiative.
