Our Future in Faith

An effort is under way to renew and enhance the Chapel of the Resurrection, which for more than half a century has stood as a central symbol of Lutheran character and mission at Valparaiso University.

The Chapel of the Resurrection Fundraising Initiative: Our Future in Faith is an undertaking designed to prepare the chapel for dynamic ministry in the years ahead. According to President Mark A. Heckler Ph.D., the Chapel of the Resurrection stands "as the centerpiece of campus and the heart of worship, service, leadership, and reconciliation for the campus community."

Offices for Chapel staff are found in the Kathleen and Mark Helge Center, adjacent to the Chapel. To reserve space for either the Chapel or Helge Center, contact Deb Garbukas, (219) 465-7956.
