Leaders Producing Leaders
Mentors come alongside to encourage each student in many areas of life including, academics, relationships, spiritual and personal development, and leadership.
God’s Word instructs believers to follow the example, “and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us” (Phil. 3.17). As part of the Servant of All Program, SUM provides each student with a mentor that models positive values and spiritual principles. Although the expectations and needs of each student vary, the mentoring program encourages the development of those goals through a caring relationship that responds to needs of each student. The staff at SUM consider spiritual mentoring to be part of their vocational calling. They offer spiritual care and mentoring during office hours, over coffee or mealtimes, and even in their homes.
Here at SUM Bible College and Theological Seminary we do not take it for granted that we are able to come together for corporate worship and for the hearing of the word of God. Being in the presence of fellow believers in worship is a source of joy and strength for our community. The main service of the day meets in the chapel from 10:05 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., daily, Tuesday-Friday.
SUM is committed to training ministers to be healthy in all areas of life. Physical education is important because our bodies are a temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 6:19-20). Students are encourage to stay healthy and meet the Physical Education requirement of three 20-workouts per week per trimester.
