Southwestern Seminary launches live streaming video of chapel


FORT WORTH, Texas (BP) — Southwestern Seminary will produce live, online, streaming video of its chapel services beginning this semester.

The first streaming chapel service was on Aug. 24.

During chapel time the video will be the first item to appear on the home page of Southwestern Seminary’s website,

Services are held in the Truett Auditorium on the Southwestern campus from 10:50 a.m. to noon CST, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during the spring and fall semesters.

The streaming video will require the Adobe Flash Player plug-in, which, according to Southwestern’s communications office, is on most personal computers already. The seminary’s website will provide a link to a website where the plug-in can be downloaded and installed.

Initially, audio and video recordings of each chapel service were archived immediately after each service. The archived videos are viewable from the seminary’s website, but only the audio recordings will be available for downloading.

Videos of all but one chapel service since Aug. 24 are available online at the school’s website. W. Dwight McKissic’s address to the student body on Aug. 29 has been pulled from the site by the administration at Southwestern. For full story see page 19.

Podcasts of chapel sermons are also available on iTunes, which is free software that can be downloaded from

This software is compatible with both Macintosh and Windows computers. Currently, iTunes has the chapel sermons from fall 2005 and spring 2006.
