The Prophet's Chamber
The Nagel Institute, in partnership with Langham Partnership International, opened its doors in June to the “Prophet’s Chamber,” a furnished apartment near Calvin College. The apartment houses visiting scholars in theology from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. Scholars have access to Hekman Library for one to three months as well as opportunities to engage with other outstanding Christian scholars and ministry leaders for their research and writing. Along with the apartment and access to Hekman Library, the visiting scholar also receives a stipend for groceries, as well as an office within the Nagel Institute.
The Nagel Institute is pleased to welcome the first guests of the Prophet's Chamber:
- June 1 – August 14: Leonid Mikhovich, Minsk Theological Seminary, Republic of Belarus
- August 15 – September 15: Elie & Mireille Haddad, Arab Baptist Theological Seminary, Lebanon

Prophet’s Chamber is a visiting scholars program that offers the opportunity for Christian scholars to spend one to four months at Calvin College to continue work on their research.
