Prayer and Praise
Every Tuesday and Thursday at 11:45 a.m. there is a time of prayer and testimonies.
Each Wednesday evening a prayer meeting is held on the campus from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The Ministerial Association and Mission Band are responsible for one Wednesday prayer meeting each month. Dorm prayer meetings are led by the respective deans; also, students are encouraged to initiate their own prayer meetings.
During the semester, chapel services are scheduled on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 11:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Along with campus speakers, the college schedules guest speakers which include evangelists from surrounding churches as well as missionaries.
Adequate preparation for a life of service for God requires a balance between academic instruction and practical application. All students are required to participate in a Christian Service group and must record their assignments weekly on forms provided by the Christian Service Director. Activities will be assigned at the beginning of each semester by the director. The equivalent of three semester hours of nonacademic credit must be earned to meet this requirement for graduation.
Pastoral: The pastoral student is to have as much “hands-on” experience as possible in his/her final semester which, for the most part, is under the mentorship of a seasoned pastor.
Missions: The student majoring in missions will spend time actually engaged in missionary work under the supervision of field missionaries. This can be accomplished with Allegheny Wesleyan Youth in Mission team trips or working for several weeks under a seasoned missionary.
Ministerial Appreciation Week
This special week is set aside the first semester, usually in November, to raise awareness of the Pastoral Ministries Program. Pastoral students will minister in the chapel services and the Wednesday evening prayer meeting.
Education Appreciation Week
This special week is geared toward those students majoring in Christian education. Usually the second week of October is set aside to recognize the calling of future educators. These students will lead the chapel services and the Wednesday evening prayer meeting. The Allegheny Educators’ Convention is also held during this week at Allegheny Wesleyan College, with a banquet being held on Thursday evening and sessions on Friday — with a special speaker.
Missions Appreciation Week
During this special week directed toward missions, seasoned missionaries and students who have traveled in the interest of missions will speak on the needs of the various fields of labor. An all day Missions Convention is held on the campus, with the Conference Missions Director and Allegheny missionaries speaking in the services.
Music Appreciation Week
This week is set aside to promote various areas of music. Sometimes guest artists come to the campus and give concerts or students with music abilities perform in recitals. The chapel services are directed toward the appreciation of music.
