Thank you for choosing to speak at Lubbock Christian University’s chapel.  We appreciate your willingness to be with the LCU community and look forward to your presentation.  LCU Chapel meets daily in the McDonald Moody Auditorium on Lubbock Christian University’s campus.  Since each chapel event has the potential to be a spiritually uplifting event, we have included some tips in order to assist you in your preparation:

What we DON’T want:

  • Something completely unrelated to your topic or the day’s topic.
  • Something long (keep it between 10-12 minutes). There are times when less than 10 minutes can also be effective.
  • Any attack on specific people, political stances, or organizations.  LCU encourages our community to respectfully interact with all ideologies.
  • Any mention of “Well, so-and-so asked me to do this talk today…." Or any hesitation of being the speaker.

What we DO want:

  • Any comments made should reflect an interaction with the text and/or topic of the day.
  • Allow the work of the Spirit as you plan, prepare, and present.
  • Stay on topic.
  • Know your audience and interact with them in a creative way.

This may sound overly regimented, but it is part of our attempt to deliver on three things we believe really matter to our community: having a cohesive theme/thought throughout chapel, allowing them to personally connect to you, our speaker, or your message, and ending when we say we will end. 

Finally, ask us for help!  We want you to feel comfortable and at home in our community so don’t hesitate if you have any needs.

Before chapel every day there will be a tech meeting in the booth at 9:45am in which your attendance is necessary.

We hope that this information is beneficial in providing the best experience for you and our audience.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at:
