Hebrews 10:24 says, "Let us consider how to
provoke one another unto love and good works." Colossians 3:16 says, "Let the
Word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and
admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with
thankfulness in your hearts to God." 1 Timothy 4:13 says to "give attention to
the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, and teaching."
Chapel provides inspiration and worship for the entire
college family. Therefore, chapel is considered a vital part of The Masterís
College curriculum, complimenting a student's academic and spiritual
experience. Speakers include pastors, missionaries, faculty members, other
Christian leaders, and students. We hope that each service will be a time of
spiritual challenge, but much depends upon the attitude of each student during chapel.
Attendance is required of all undergraduate students, commuter and
residential, taking 9 or more units at The Master's College. Chapel should be
treated as any required class, and students should plan their work schedules
and ministry commitments so as not to conflict with chapel. Six absences are
permitted each semester to be used for illness, emergencies, or other
situations. Tardiness to chapel services of more than five minutes or leaving
chapel before it is over are considered as an absence.
School-sponsored events that require a member of an athletic
team or a music group to miss chapel are able to make up that chapel miss with
a supplementary assignment to be assigned by the individualís Resident
Director. The student must contact their Resident Director prior to the day
they will miss chapel. One week following the absence will be permitted to
complete the assignment or that absence will be counted as a chapel miss.
Any requests for consideration of excuse for additional
emergency absences must be submitted in writing by the student to their
Resident Director within one week after the emergency. Students on
church/chapel probation are not allowed excused absences from chapel for
athletic or music responsibilities. Students who falsify attendance records
will be placed on chapel probation immediately and forfeit their remaining
absences for the semester.
applications are available in King Hall only for commuter students for special
situations. Application for exemption must be made in the Dean's Office prior
to making the job or ministry commitment. Exemptions are granted on a
semester-by-semester basis, so application for exemption must be filed each
semester by the last day to add a class as stated by the Registrarís
