Event Description

CAS and Sem students, don't miss this perfect opportunity to thank your pastor or ministry leader. Whether it's your current pastor or a ministry leader who impacted your life in the past, invite them to join you for chapel and a meal in the DC. Your pastor's meal is free! (And if you don't have a meal plan, your meal is free too!)

Here's what you do:

  1. Connect with your pastor. Pick a day and set a time: May 1, 3, or 5 and either breakfast/chapel or chapel/lunch. (The chapel speakers are Omark Preaching Award finalists who will preach on the topic of justice.)
  2. Register your pastor here.
  3. When your pastor arrives, make sure they pick up a nametag and meal ticket in the CLC Lobby.

The Omark Preaching Award competition marks its 50th anniversary this year! See the anniversary video. Each spring, Bethel Seminary students compete for the best message on a given theme. This year's theme is justice. The top three finalists give their message in CAS chapel. The messages are then posted online for viewing and voting--please vote for your favorite! The finalists earn cash prizes.

In conjunction with this year's theme of justice, you're also invited to participate in a Feed My Starving Children meal-packing project on Wednesday, May 3.
