Learning Shakespeare @ GCU

January 26, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Grand Canyon University and Ethington Theater are proud to present A Midsummer Nights Dream. “The course of true love never did run smooth.” Never was this truer than in William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Follow the hilarious angst of teen love out of Athens and into the forest as four more of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers try to find a safe place to love who and how they please. Add into the mix a fractured fairy kingdom and a group of construction workers turned artists, and you have one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays. Written soon after Romeo and Juliet, the Bard takes a shot at the blindness of love and hits a bull’s eye. Friday, February 10 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, February 11 at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, February 12 at 2:00 p.m. Friday, February 17 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, February 19 at 2:00 p.m. To Purchase Tickets Please contact the Ethington Box Office at: 602.639.8880 or ethington@gcu.edu.

Pastor Addresses Morning Chapel on Love

January 23, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Kent DelHousaye, the teaching pastor for Bethany Bible Church in Phoenix, spoke about love at this morning’s Chapel in the Arena. “If we had a slogan as Christians, what would it be? I think it would be ‘Love One Another,’” said DelHousaye, citing teachings found in 1 Peter 4:8, 1 Corinthians 13:8, John 15:12-13 and John 13:34-35. DelHousaye said love for others must neither give up nor run out. “Love is borne out in commitment and proven in faithfulness,” he said. “We need to do better on love.”

Chapel Speaker’s Church Goes Back to Bible Basics

December 02, 2011 / by / 0 Comment

Central Christian Church takes a different approach from most churches, according to Jeremy Jernigan, its pastor of worship arts, who will speak at Monday’s Chapel in GCU Arena. The 50-year-old church, which has four campuses in metropolitan Phoenix, resists the big, bold marketing pushes that are common with megachurches. Instead, it focuses on the Bible and tries to keep things simple. In his visit to GCU, Jernigan will speak on Matthew 21 and the parable of the tenants. He plans to talk about faith as a verb and what it means to live out faith on a daily basis.

‘God Can’t Sleep’ Author Speaks at Chapel

November 29, 2011 / by / 0 Comment

Chapel heard a message about social justice from Palmer Chinchen, lead pastor of The Grove church in Chandler. Chinchen, who was born in Liberia, has written a book (“God Can’t Sleep”) about the need for Christians to wake up to the world’s social concerns. “A lot of people put the name of Jesus Christ on their lives but they don’t live that way, and that’s what bothers me,” Chinchen said, citing Ephesians 5:14. “Justice is the raging heartbeat of the Bible. … If we have a God that can’t sleep, then I hope you can’t, either.”

Chapel Speaker an Outspoken Advocate for Justice

November 23, 2011 / by / 0 Comment

You wouldn’t expect a church in suburban Chandler to be leading the charge for social justice. In the land of SUVs, strip malls and youth soccer games, who has time for that? Well, Palmer Chinchen does, and he has given his ministry over to it. As lead pastor of The Grove church, he took more than 100 parishioners with him to Africa in the summer of 2010. When he brings a message to Chapel on Monday in GCU Arena, don’t expect him to dance around concerns that he says the evangelical church “has historically been deaf to.”

God’s Word Is Home for Chapel Speaker Yates

November 11, 2011 / by / 0 Comment

The U.S. Postal Service stays plenty busy keeping track of Air Force families such as the one Smedly Yates grew up in. The roll call for Yates: Texas (twice), New Mexico, Alaska, Arizona (twice), California (twice), Illinois and Tennessee (twice). After bouncing around so much for so long, it’s no surprise that Yates, 36, seems happily rooted as one of two pastors at Grace Bible Church in Chandler, which began near the Arizona State University campus 10 years ago and now meets at Valley Christian High School. He’s also firmly planted in preaching the Bible.
