For over a century, Lee University has shaped the lives of students through the practice of confessional corporate worship experiences and chapel programming. This thesis has both social scientific and spiritual significance. The social scientific goals assess the advantages and disadvantages of the current chapel programmatic structure as it relates to the engagement and formation of the student body at Lee. The spiritual goals are established through a biblically faithful interpretation of metaphorical exile and the redemptive practices that lead to resilient discipleship in Generation Z. To accomplish both of these objectives, a diagnostic tool was designed to assess five essential domains in chapel programming. That instrument, the Redemptive Chapel Inventory, was created to inform and assist university administration in the pursuit of holistic development through chapel programming.
