10.16 Policies provide adequate opportunities for the spiritual and professional development of faculty.
All faculty members will be expected to be members of and faithfully attend a local Free Will Baptist Church that is a cooperating church of the college. (The only exception to this rule would be if the college hired a professor who is a member of another denomination and has approval from the President to attend that denominational church.) All faculty members will be expected to be actively involved in the ministry of the church they attend. This includes Sunday School, morning worship, Sunday evening services, and Wednesday night prayer meeting. All faculty members will be expected to be actively involved in the soul-winning ministry of the church they attend. In addition, faculty are expected to attend chapel when they are on campus or watch on the closed circuit TV’s with permission. As a Bible College multiple opportunities for spiritual and professional growth are made available to employees.
Faculty are encouraged to belong to professional organizations and to be active in such. Presentation of papers at professional meetings is highly encouraged. Depending upon budget constraints stipends may be available.
