In the Spiritual Formation Program, all students participate in 36 hours with Jesus through worship, discipleship and service each semester.  There are many different ways to reach the 36 hours.  Each student attends at least 22 out of 30 chapel gathers, earning 22 to 30 Spiritual Formation Hours.  The additional hours can be completed through ACU spiritual life opportunities or through a local church.
