"...Along with the hands-on approach to learning, we have many opportunities here at Dordt for our faith to grow. My faith has grown so much since I began here last year because of how easy it is to get involved in bible studies and participate in worship. It’s a truly unique program that combines our faith into every aspect."

Dordt Worship Recent Releases

Evidence / You Hold It All Together

Dordt Worship's newest release can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and wherever else you listen to music.

Glorious Day

"Glorious Day" was released on Good Friday because, "...of the lyrical parallel between Christ’s resurrection and our restoration to life," Director of Production Arts Alex Priore said. "He calls us out of darkness and into light. From brokenness to healing. Because of what he’s done, we can be restored.”

I Thank God

"I Thank God" is the culmination of the work of 16 Dordt staff, faculty, students, and recent graduates. They sang, played instruments, made album art, recorded, and produced the song. Rev. Dr. Jeremy Perigo, professor of theology and worship arts at Dordt said, "We hope as our community listens, they will join in thanking our God, who has broken us free from sin and death.”

Worship Opportunities at Dordt

There are so many ways to be involved with the Dordt University community through worship. Whether on-campus in chapel and small groups, or off-campus with a local church, there will be a place for you.

The Dordt community worships together every Wednesday at 11 a.m. during the academic year. Chapel isn't mandatory for students, but the service is so awesome that 2/3 of the student body regularly attends.

To join us live for chapel, visit our YouTube channel.

Praise and Worship provides an opportunity for the community to gather each Thursday evening at 10 p.m. Coordinated by students, these times of singing, often coupled with Scripture reading and prayer, are led by one of two worship teams that serve on a rotating basis. Praise and Worship encourages students to reflect on their unity as Christians and to form relationships with others as they worship.

All students are invited to join a campus small group. These groups are predominately student-led, consisting of 5-8 peers and covering a variety of topics and themes.

The heartbeat of small groups is not getting through a book or gaining knowledge about a particular topic but rather experiencing eternal life in the present. Jesus tells us, “And this is Eternal Life, that they KNOW you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3). This eternal life is much more about quality of life now rather than duration of life in the future, and the knowledge Jesus is talking about is not head knowledge but experiential, heart knowledge. In a campus small group, it is our desire for students to experience the life Jesus offers through community, God’s Word, and the working of His Holy Spirit.

Small groups are open to anyone and everyone on campus. Some groups are focused on prayer and accountability, others go through a book of the Bible, and some focus on a topic such as forgiveness, shame, or slowing down from our hurried pace of life.

Every Sunday, Christian churches in the Sioux Center community meet for worship. Students are encouraged to participate in these services. In fact, the college supports this activity by supplying transportation for students from the Campus Center to a number of churches each Sunday.

Local churches are very supportive of college students, and the college seeks to have regular contact with those churches to further enhance that cooperation in serving students.

Each year, Campus Ministries provides opportunities for faith formation off-campus. Whether that be retreats for students at lake Okoboji, mission mobilization weekends in Minneapolis, attending a ministry minded conference, and much more.

The hope for these faith formation opportunities is to build community, raise global awareness, develop leadership, and bring us into closer proximity to Jesus. During a student's years at Dordt they will be able to experience one or a number of these.
