Convocation and Campus Church

Liberty University is interested and in meeting the physical, social, intellectual, and spiritual needs of the Liberty community. To meet these needs, Liberty provides opportunities for students to gather and serve as a community through convocations, campus church services and Christian/ Community Service.

CONVOCATION
Convocation is a thrice-weekly assembly of the University community for the purposes of building unity within the community, disseminating information, and providing forums for the socio-political issues of the day and other educational topics of diverse interest for the benefit of students, faculty and staff. Each year more than 80 guest speakers from the worlds of business, politics, education, the sciences and religion, talented faculty and staff members, music and timely messages from our Chancellor help make convocation a refreshing and challenging time. All students are required to attend all convocations.

CAMPUS CHURCH SERVICES
The Wednesday campus church services are designed to meet the spiritual needs of students. Complementing the instruction provided in the classroom is the spiritual exhortation provided in campus services, which is primarily concerned with the application of truth to life. Students are encouraged to attend Wednesday evening campus services.
