The formal Convocation to be held at 7:00 p.m. will include a President’s address to students and faculty and will emphasize the school’s theme for this year, “In all seasons, preach the Word” (Holy Bible, II Timothy 4:2). The Convocation is combined with a Fall Commencement during which 25 degrees will be conferred. Among the degrees being presented are a Master’s degree in Holistic Education and 21 Bachelor’s degrees in the following programs – Teacher Education, TESL (Teachers of English as a Second Language), Missions, Counseling, Children’s Ministry, and Leadership and Ministry Preparation.

To enter this program, students must have 60 hours of approved college credits. L.A.M.P. classes meet one night a week. Each class is held for five consecutive weeks.
