An important goal of seminary training is that students will grow to be mature Christians, so that their lives will show forth the glory of Christ. All students are expected to live a lifestyle that reflects a submission to the lordship of Jesus Christ both on and off campus. They are expected to have regular devotion time, church involvement, evangelistic outreach, physical exercises as well as helping, encouraging and serving one another. The emphasis is on the holistic development of all students.
At the beginning of each semester there is an orientation program designed for all new students. This is to help students to get to know the seminary facilities, academic workload, as well as other expectations and requirements.
Chapel services are held Monday through Friday. These services are a vital part of seminary education in which there is corporate worship, sharing and fellowship. Speakers include faculty members, students and guest speakers who share their experiences and visions. All students should attend all chapel services. Prior approval should be obtained if students are to be absent from a chapel service.
Facilities and Activities
Both the student lounge and the computer center are always open for students to use. All students and their faculty counselors will meet regularly for small group sharing, prayers, lunch and other activities. Dormitory rules are available for students who live on campus.
The Student Association is set up to help take care of student matters and communicate student needs to the seminary administration as well as the Alumni Association.
The Student Association is administratively and financially independent. All student members pay their membership fees. In March or April of every year, there will be an election of new committee members. An adviser is appointed by the seminary administration. There are currently six committee members: the chairman, vice-chairman, secretary, treasurer, business manager, devotional leader and social convenor.
The Student Association organizes various extra-curricular activities for students to promote both physical and spiritual health and foster good social relationships. It works closely with the Alumni Association so that graduating students will be helped and encouraged for effective testimony and ministry.
