Each week begins and ends with chapel. Chapel is a time of worship and praise to God for the Seminary students, faculty, and staff. All full-time students are required to attend chapel.
Chapels are typically held Monday mornings at 9:00 a.m. and Friday afternoons at 12:25 p.m.
The professor-student ratio at CRTS allows the faculty to interact with informal requests from students seeking help or advice. At the same time, there is also a more formal arrangement called mentoring which assigns each student to a certain professor so that a closer relationship can be fostered between students and professors. The goal is to meet regularly (at a minimum, once per semester) on a one-to-one basis. If the student is married, the mentor may also meet occasionally with the student, his spouse, and their children.
These mentor meetings serve to promote communication between professor and student as well as providing a regular avenue for addressing spiritual needs (e.g., sense of calling), emotional concerns (e.g., stress management), or other practical matters (e.g., health or financial issues). This program is supervised by the Dean of Students. By making these regular mentor visits, it is hoped that the student body will sense that the faculty aims not only to teach students a prescribed curriculum, but also to assist them in their overall spiritual formation, all the while focussing on the final goal of preparing them for the ministry of the holy gospel.
