Read below the invitation letter from Dr. Lisa Stewart, Dean of Students & Assoc. Professor:

CBS Students,

You are invited to the 1st CBS Convocation this fall on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at 7:30pm in rooms 104-106. President, Dr. Bill Blocker, will officially proclaim the opening of the academic year and welcome all students, especially new students, to the CBS family and campus. Attire for convocation is “Sunday dress/business professional”.

The word convocation derives from the Latin word convocare, which means “together” (con) and “call” (vocare).  Convocation is an opportunity to formally call together or summon and will allow us to open the year with a traditional college milestone and close the year with one as well–commencement. Therefore, we look forward to coming together with each of you at the start of our 2017-2018 academic year.

At many Bible colleges, Christian universities, and seminaries, convocation also has theological significance. We assemble to celebrate our God, who calls us and equips us for every good work to bring Him glory. During convocation, we collectively and individually acknowledge our dependence on our Heavenly Father, through Christ Jesus and the power the Holy Spirit. We also reaffirm our striving for personal holiness and focus on personal ministry to others. It is our prayer that you will join us as we celebrate this special time of our academic year.

I will also introduce our Quality Enhancement Program (QEP) which focuses on the theme of stewardship. Everyone who attends convocation will receive a free QEP gift. Students will also get the first opportunity to see the new Student Life and Discipleship Center. Refreshments will be served afterwards as we enjoy a time of fellowship. So we can plan accordingly please RSVP if you attend via email to [email protected].

We look forward to what God is going to do this fall as we start our new academic year, collectively worshiping and praising God in one accord.

Many blessings, 

Lisa Stewart, M.B.A., Ph.D.
