The Dora Maclellan Brown Memorial Chapel and Fine Arts Building was completed in 1978. The white cross on the front of the building is approximately 67 feet high and is made of Tennessee marble. It represents to the community the Christ-centered vision of the College.
The chapel auditorium is located on the main floor and seats 800. Regular chapel services, lectures, musical and theatre performances, and other large events are held in the chapel.
The chapel also houses the music department, including classrooms, practice rooms, and faculty and staff offices.
The stained glass windows are a major focal point in the chapel auditorium. The windows graphically display the constancy of God's love for His own, as depicted throughout Scripture.
The center window is the largest. Known as the Covenant of Life window, it is a colorful reminder of God’s dealings with His people in both the Old and New Testaments. It gives a chronological record of major figures in the biblical drama and joins them all together through the prevailing theme of the covenant that God has established with His chosen ones. The six panels display creation, the Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants, David and the prophets, the death of Christ, the Great Commission, and the wedding supper of the Lamb in the New Jerusalem.
The window on the right side of the auditorium depicts the growth of the church through the ministry of early church fathers. Pictured are Paul and Barnabas on their first missionary journey, Augustine, and Martin Luther nailing his theses to the Wittenburg door.
The window on the left side of the auditorium continues the theme of church growth with representations of John Calvin writing at his desk, Jonathan Edwards and George Whitfield preaching, and Abraham Kuyper lecturing.
The Maclellan family funded most of the chapel building, which is named in memory of their aunt, Dora Maclellan Brown, who was a local Sunday school teacher for over 35 years.
