Attendance Expectations

Bible Conference attendance is not based upon your normal class-day schedule.

Day students are to attend all Bible Conference services with the following exceptions:

Those who live 30 or more miles from the campus are not required to attend the evening Bible Conference services. Please check the mileage before requesting this exemption.

If you live 30 miles away and normally have no classes on a given day, you may miss the daytime and evening services on that day.

You may maintain your regular work schedule. You may not add extra work hours during the week of Bible Conference.

If you need to arrive a few minutes late or leave a service a few minutes early in order to get to work, you should sit in Levinson Hall for that service rather than miss the entire service. For example, someone going to work at 2:30 p.m. or later is expected to attend as much of the 1:30 service as possible.

If you work a night shift that ends at 7 a.m. or 8 a.m., you may miss the 10 a.m. service in order to sleep.

If your work schedule can be adjusted to allow you to attend Bible Conference services, you should take the initiative to change your schedule.

Day students working on campus will be excused by their work managers.

You may continue a regular outreach ministry where your presence is required to maintain the ministry. For example, a regular Bible club or nursing home ministry may continue during the week of Bible Conference. However, a ministry such as street witnessing should be suspended or adjusted in order not to conflict with a Bible Conference service. Those ministries that continue are asked to operate with a minimal crew during the week of Bible Conference.

Students who are exempt from non-academic attendance requirements are not required to attend the Bible Conference services. Click here if you think this may apply to you. If you have already contacted the Student Life & Discipleship office for this exemption, no additional approval is required.

Those taking a very limited number of credits (2-5 credits) may speak with someone in the Student Life & Discipleship office if attending all of the Bible Conference services creates a scheduling hardship.
