At the heart of theological education is the worship of God. Hood Theological Seminary gathers together for worship Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10:10 to 10:50 the Chapel in the 300 building. The Seminary celebrates the sacrament of Holy Communion the first Wednesday and Saturday of each month during the academic year. We also gather an offering each service that is given in its entirety to local and global relief organizations such as the local Rowan Helping Ministries, and HIV/AIDS ministries in Zimbabwe. Worship leaders and preachers include faculty, staff, students, alumni/ae, and guest preachers.

The Director of the Chapel is Rev. Dr. André Resner, Professor of Homiletics and Worship. He is assisted by Chapel Stewards chosen from among the student body. The public is welcome to attend!
