As a college, we are strongly committed to the ministry of the local church and the importance of each individual’s participation in some form of regular Christian service. To encourage participation and spiritual growth, all students enrolled at Arlington Baptist College are expected to complete the following Christian Service Unit for each semester of full-time enrollment or after the successful completion of every 12 hours of coursework. This requirement will run concurrently with enrollment in the classes whose completion will cause the students’ accumulated hours to exceed 12, 24, 36, etc. No degree will be issued to a student who has not completed the required number of Christian Service Units.
A Christian Service Unit includes:
- A stated commitment to active membership and involvement in a local church.
- A report summarizing 8 hours of practicing skills related to field of study.
- A completed self-evaluation of skills developed during enrollment at Arlington Baptist College.
- A completed pastoral evaluation of the student.
All policies, privileges, and report forms described in the current Christian Service Manual will be applicable to any student enrolled in Distance Education (Online Program).
