Personal Devotion Time
One of the keys to experiencing the full potential of the PAFCOE program is faithfulness in the area of personal devotions. This personal time spent between the soul and God enables and empowers the student for dynamic Christianity and effective ministry. Far from being a burdensome requirement, it is a blessed privilege!
Students are required to attend all scheduled classes and outreach projects unless other arrangements have been made and approved by the Administrator. Habitual tardiness and/or absence will not be tolerated and may lead to expulsion.
The Sabbath hours, from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, are sacred and joyous times for spiritual renewal, public worship, and Christian fellowship. Secular activities (shopping, business, sports, and distracting amusements) are to be avoided during this time. Attendance at worship services is required unless arrangements are made to accommodate special circumstances.
A friendly and professional association is expected between attendees. Because of the intensity of the program, dating and courting is prohibited among the participants while at PAFCOE. All are required to maintain a high standard of moral purity, avoiding the appearance of inappropriate attentions to the opposite sex.
At PAFCOE, we strive to be the best at everything we do. We realize that God has called us to be a witness for Him. As part of that calling, we believe that dress and grooming should be modest, neat, and clean. Recognizing that our program demands a high standard of professionalism & excellence, the following dress policies are in effect for all students:
Please be advised that torn jeans, sleeveless or stomach revealing tops, skin-tight apparel, low-cut or unbuttoned shirts are not allowed at anytime on campus or for off campus activities. Any jewelry, including wedding bands/rings, shall not be worn. Tattoos should be covered and not visible if possible.
For class & chapel, a professional or professional-casual look is expected. Dress or kaki pants with collared or button-up shirt or barong are required for men. For ladies, skirts or dresses are expected during class, chapel, outreach, and the evangelistic meetings. No jeans, shorts, T-shirts, or mini-skirts are allowed at any time during class, chapel, outreach, church, or the evangelistic meetings.
For church, a professional look is expected. Shirt & tie or barong is suitable for men. Modest dresses or skirts/blouse for ladies are required. For Friday evening vespers as the Sabbath hours begin, church attire is appropriate as we worship together.
