What is Convocation?

The word Convocation derives from the Latin word convocare, which means "together" (con) and "call" (vocare). A convocation is an opportunity to formally call together or summon.

Fall Convocation marks the start of a new academic year. The event celebrates the start of a new year with the excitement of meeting new people and new challenges - and it moves our students one step closer to commencement. 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. 

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!


"For who is our hope or joy or crown of exultation? Is it not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming? For you are our glory and joy" (1 Thessalonians 2:19-20).
