Asian Seminary of Christian Ministries is committed to the Lord and His body. Administrators, faculty, staff members and students constitute a community of believers and a fellowship of the Spirit, ministering to each other. Every effort is made to cultivate community life through personal interaction both inside and outside of the classroom. Corporate singing/worship/prayer, group ministries, special activities, and Community of Faith sessions, are all viewed as fellowship opportunities in our Christian Community.
Ministry is an outflow of life, not mere activities. Spiritual maturity determines the quality of ministry. Growth in spiritual life of the entire seminary family (students, staff, faculty and administration) is an important concern of ASCM. Intellectual growth must be accompanied by a growing spiritual life evidenced by an intimate daily walk with God, and being filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
All-School Spiritual Retreats
Two special all school retreats, one each semester, are directed toward a revival and deepening of the spiritual life of the students. They are an occasion for the Seminary community to gather and to consider matters vital to a genuine standard of Christian living. All students are required to attend. These two-day retreats aim to establish relationships among faculty members, staff and students and also to provide opportunities to be strengthened by God through ministry.
Student Body Prayer Meeting
Students are encouraged to set times of prayer and intercession. There is a prayer room on the sixth floor for group and private prayer times.
Students are enthusiastically involved in producing the school’s newspaper, ?Kerux?. It is published twice each semester. It is a venue to display the creativity and writing skills of students. Aside from the newspaper, students are also involved in producing the ?Legacy? ? ASCM’s yearbook.
Chapel services are held every Thursday (11:00 am to 12:30 noon) in the ASCM Chapel. The entire seminary community is expected to join together for worship and instructions. ASCM views these services as an integral and indispensable part of the curriculum, contributing to a deeper and richer devotional life for the members of the ASCM family. They provide an opportunity for student participation in the leading of corporate worship and in the ministry of the Word.
