CHAPEL HILL’S DNA

CHAPEL HILL’S DNA

These are the distinctive values or qualities that define us as a Christian community. If any of these things were missing, we wouldn’t be Chapel Hill. We believe there are nine pieces of Chapel Hill’s DNA, split into three groups: head, heart, and hands. What we believe, how we behave, and what we do.
