Chapel.

    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.

    Chapel exemption 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 office.
