Ministers, inspirational speakers and business professionals will be among the guests for September Chapel at Waco Hall on the Baylor University campus.

David Myers, former controller of telecommunications giant WorldCom, will speak on Monday, Sept. 13. In 2002, Myers agreed to cooperate with authorities against other executive officers at WorldCom and to plead guilty to conspiracy, securities fraud and making false filings to the Securities and Exchange Commission. He now travels the United States speaking about business ethics.

Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil, president and founder of leadership development company Salter McNeil & Associates, will speak on Monday, Sept. 20. Dr. Salter McNeil is an inspirational speaker and author experienced in the area of racial and ethnic reconciliation. Through her speeches she seeks to raise awareness, ignite vision and inspire action on university campuses, in churches and at conferences.

Bart Campolo, Founder of Mission Year, will speak on Monday, Sept. 27. Mission Year is a Christian ministry which recruits committed young adults to live and work among the poor in inner-city neighborhoods across the country. Campolo is a veteran urban minister from Cincinnati who is coming to Baylor as part of the department of spiritual life's Be the Change Missions Conference.

Baylor Chapel is continuing the trend started last year of keeping guest speakers limited to Mondays. Spiritual life staffers say that this approach allows for a more intimate community worship time for students.

Baylor University's department of spiritual life sponsors Chapel in Waco Hall on Baylor's campus at 9:05 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m Mondays and Wednesdays. Each speaker will speak at all three Monday time slots.
