All are welcome to join us for tonight’s Tuesday Prayer and Devotion Zoom meeting which will be led by Cyril Chavis, RUF campus minister at Howard University. If you did not get the email with Zoom log in information and would like to attend, please contact Pastor Matt Bowles for details.
Rev. Cyril Chavis, Jr. is from Virginia Beach, VA. During his first year at the University of Virginia, Cyril recognized that he was a sinner who was rebelling against a God who has a glorious design for his life. Cyril recognized his desperate need and gave his life to Jesus Christ, experiencing the life transforming grace of God. Soon afterwards, he sensed an inward call to ministry and immediately pursued the training necessary to sharpen his ministerial gifting. After being licensed to preach in Mt. Gilead Missionary Baptist Church by Rev. Dr. Shelton Murphy, becoming a church planting resident at Portico Church, and graduating from UVA with a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies, Cyril began his formal training, pursuing a Master of Divinity at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson. During his seminary training, he became a ministry intern under Rev. Elbert McGowan. After graduating seminary in 2017 and leading RUF at Jackson State for four years, Cyril and his wife, Jenell, are excited about starting an RUF at Howard. When Cyril is not at work in ministry, you can find him hanging out with Jenell, goofing off with his two daughters (Aria and Elise), or laughing way too hard with friends and family!
