New Hope Christian College


Students, faculty, and staff gather several Wednesdays each semester at 10am in Stewart Chapel for Summons. These corporate times of worship, ministry, “NHCC community business,” messages from God’s Word, etc. are part of the overall training experience for our students. All students who are degree-seeking, or enrolled for nine credits or more, are required to attend Summons each semester they are enrolled.

Non-degree-seeking students who are less than half time (eight credits or less) are strongly encouraged to attend. Students who are unable to attend Summons on a regular basis due to work or family commitments must obtain an attendance waiver from the Dean of Student Services.
