WILLIAM S. & LAURA JEAN PHILLIPS CHAPEL
Students taking nine or more credit hours will be required to attend Chapel each week. Chapel attendance offers a unique opportunity to bring the college community together for participation in the process of personal and corporate transformation through experiences with God. The program regularly involves students as both participants and leaders in worship of God. The desired results are spiritual formation on the YCC campus, an increased commitment to the Lord, a great sense of campus community, the integration of faith and learning as preparation for service, and openness to an understanding of various forms of worship. Currently, Chapel is held on Wednesday mornings at 11:00 a.m.
In 2002, a generous gift made possible the construction of a chapel/music building. This new building houses the chapel as well as a prayer room, offices for the music faculty, a practice room, choir room, classroom, and the music library to which new selections are added continually. In addition, a kitchen provides service for the reception area. In 2012, the chapel/music building was dedicated to President Emeritus, Dr. William S. Phillips and his wife Laura Jean.
