It has served us well for generations. Now is your chance to say thanks.
The Chapel has served as a place of worship, spiritual growth, and community for generations of students. Today, it is undergoing a renovation that will transform it into a beautiful, functional, and inspiring Worship Center. We’re over halfway to our goal of $4.5 million and need your help to get us over the finish line.
We invite you to join us and are calling on all friends of NU to give generously.
New Westbrook Global Prayer Center
We are working tirelessly to create a space that will continue to inspire worship and transform lives. Your gift of any size will play a crucial role in making sure the next generation of NU students have a dedicated place where their hearts are awakened and transformed by Christ.
Here are just a few of the updates being made:
New Westbrook Global Prayer Center | Upgraded recording facilities | Large atrium | Improved staging and technical equipment | New front façade | New hospitality suite
Add your name to the Vision Wall
As part of the Chapel Renovation Campaign, we’re creating a Vision Wall that will be displayed in the expanded Foyer. For those who give $1,000 or more (or $500/year over two years), your name may be added to this wall as a permanent tribute to your generosity and vision.
Thank you for considering this opportunity to make a difference. We are grateful for your support and look forward to the privilege of partnering with you in this mission.
Listen as others tell their stories about what the chapel has meant to them. You can even upload your own chapel story to share.
Share Your Chapel Story
The Butterfield Chapel inside the Worship Center is the heart and soul of Northwest University. We may have lived in different dorms or lived off campus, but we came together in worship and praise as one body during chapel services. Lives were transformed. Laughs were shared. Tears were shed. Hands were raised in praise. And God was glorified.
Do you have a powerful, funny, or poignant Butterfield Chapel experience you’d like to share with others? This is the place to do it. We’ll gather the videos and post them to a page where they can be shared with the larger NU community to enjoy.
Helpful Hints When Recording
- If using your phone, record in vertical format.
- Record with a light source in front of you, not behind you.
- Stabilize the camera on a hard surface.
- Make sure you are close enough to the mic to ensure good sound.
- If possible, opt for a simple and uncluttered background.

How to Upload Your Experience
Here’s how it works. It’s easy and we aren’t looking for perfection.
- Use your phone or laptop to record a 30 – 60 second video. Any longer can create a large file size that may be difficult to upload.
- Once you’ve recorded your video, simply use the form below to upload it.
