Gather 4 Him Christian College offers two orientations in each academic year. One before the start of classes in the fall and one before the start of classes in the spring. Our orientation includes a dynamic team building day as well as a college prep day where students are given essential tools for a successful college experience. For our new students at Gather 4 Him Christian College, orientation is a great time and opportunity for them to learn about higher education expectations of the college, meet the faculty, staff, and current students, as well as have fun by participating in an activity that helps transition students into the school year. A few of the items discussed in orientation include but are not limited to: Paying for College Presentation, Student Life at G4HCC Presentation, Tour of facility, Academic Advising, and Transition to College Life Presentation.
During the week we spend time learning about the importance of devotions. Students also have the opportunity to pray for one another and share what God has been doing in their lives.
In addition to the opportunity for spiritual development through college curriculum, all students are required to attend chapel services. Every Friday G4HCC students come together and engage in a variety of activities such as team building, service projects, sharing personal life experiences, listening to guest speakers, pastors, and worship.
Chapel is an opportunity for the G4HCC community to focus on their relationship with Christ, which is an essential component of their overall college experience. Scripture emphasizes that all Christians need to take time and pause for the purpose of praise. Chapel is an intentional way for staff, faculty, and students to stop, shift focus to God on a weekly basis, and praise Him. G4HCC chapels vary in both structure and content. Throughout the year, students can expect guest speakers, worship music, staff/faculty speakers and community service projects. The Student Life Staff believes that hitting pause, as a whole community, is extremely beneficial for students therefore, chapel attendance is mandatory for each student.
G4HCC students attend a leadership conference each year such as Catalyst West Coast in Irvine, California, The WKND Conference at The City Church in Kirkland or Generation Unleashed Conference in Portland, Oregon. These weekends are packed with life changing experiences.
There are many student events that happen throughout the school year and they are a blast! From holiday parties to hang out nights, G4HCC students always have something fun to do together!
The size of our college gives us the opportunity to serve the students with one-on-one guidance in their academic and career goals. Also, pre-college level courses are offered in Math & Writing.

Because a major purpose of the College is to promote personal growth, G4HCC seeks to provide the instruction and atmosphere essential to the development of spiritual maturity.
It is our hope that the motivating force of all our actions is the love of God, rather than the desire to please people or the fear of punishment (Colossians 3:23). Thus motivated, you will express the highest standards of conduct in all your relationships. Your love for truth will lead you to avoid all forms of lying, deceitfulness and cheating. You will respect law and authority in general as well as the government and its officials. You will obey them when consistent with Scripture and perform the duties of a good citizen. You should manifest allegiance to the Body of Christ by faithful attendance at the services of a local church and by participation in its ministries. Your respect for the property of others will restrain you from stealing and from careless or reckless use of others’ possessions. A sense of dignity of human life will prevent you not only from willfully or carelessly causing harm to another, but also from destroying the reputation of another through malicious gossip. You will observe the Scriptural injunctions of love, obedience, and fidelity at all times. You will show proper respect for your body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit, by abstaining from immorality and practices harmful to the body. This respect will extend to your attitude toward the treatment of other persons.
In questions of doubtful activities, certain broad scriptural principles are useful for guiding conduct. First of all, as a Christian you will consider that the rights of others are more important than your own; you will realize that inner righteousness surpasses any external law or constraint and that your scale of values emphasizes the positive good rather than a mere abstinence from evil; and you will govern your actions and do what leads to peace, what edifies others, and what glorifies God (Romans 14:19).
In light of scriptural principles, G4HCC expects its faculty, staff and student body to refrain from certain practices in contemporary culture which are offensive to the weak Christian conscience. The College also expects that in matters of entertainment its faculty, staff and students will exercise discretion and restraint in all choices.
