  • Cell Fellowship

The Wednesday Cell Fellowship has been a great time of refreshing for all the students. The programme is coordinated by the students themselves and the testimonies from the various locations across the Halls of Residence have been heartwarming.

  • The Hebron Bible Foundation (HBF)

As part of efforts to enhance the spiritual life of our students, the Student’s Chaplaincy initiated a mini Bible School called Hebron Bible Foundation and makes it a prerequisite for becoming a member of any of the Chapel service Units. HBF has imparted greatly on those who have attended till date.

  • Prayer/Evangelism Conferences

The Prayer/Evangelism Units also coordinate special prayer conferences which are times of corporate prayers and word impartation for staff and students alike.

  • Specialized Hall Prayer Conferences

These are special prayer meetings that hold on a Hall to Hall basis once or bi-weekly.

  • Hour of Destiny

A time of corporate daily prayer lasting one (1) hour when each student, as they have opportunity to attend, is left alone to pray for the University, their families, academics etc.
