College Days – Fall 2018

College Days is a great way for prospective students to experience life at Hyles-Anderson College. You will get to stay in our residence halls, eat in the dining hall, interact with students, meet teachers, enjoy campus life, and participate in the outreach ministries right alongside our current students. We look forward to seeing you at College Days!

October 4-8, 2018

Cost: $40

You are invited to join us at Hyles-Anderson College as we take a step beyond the classroom during our Fall College Days.  We want to give you the opportunity to experience what student life is like outside of the classroom walls, where real ministry happens.

One of the things that sets Hyles-Anderson College apart is the ministry opportunities made available to our students. We believe you don’t have to wait until you graduate to be in the ministry. We believe you can be in the ministry while you are training for the ministry. Our Fall College Days will focus on that ministry involvement.

Fall College Days will begin on Thursday afternoon and will extend over an entire weekend. What our students learn in the classroom on Monday through Friday is put into practice on the weekends in the Chicagoland area. As a College Days delegate, you will have the opportunity to experience this firsthand through the bus ministry, Sunday schools, junior churches, afternoon programs, night bus, and other aspects of outreach ministry. You will also attend the Fall Bus Rally, an annual event that sets the tone for the Fall Program. Of course, you will attend the Sunday services and participate in the ministries of the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana.

We want you to see what it is like beyond the classroom at Hyles-Anderson College. We give our students the opportunity to take what they learn and put it into practice to minister to someone every single week.
