Spiritual Life

Several features give enhanced spiritual direction at the Seminary for day students. First, faculty and students participate in a weekly chapel service of praise and preaching. Other informal meetings for prayer, Bible study, and fellowship are organized by the students themselves.

Practical courses address the needs of the student’s daily Christian life. Classes in Discipleship and Evangelism offer each day-time student the tools and encouragement necessary for sharing his or her Christian faith with other believers and unbelievers.

As an aid to the personal and professional training of all M.Div., B.D., and M.C.M. (Church Ministry Emphasis) students, a “Personal Edification Program” has been designed. The PEP supplements class material, scheduling a select bibliography of Christian classics emphasizing great devotional works and practical theology. A comprehensive list of Bible memory verses essential for personal work and useful in different types of worship services complements the readings from the divines. Some of this material is assigned in various courses.
