Student Life


Student Body

Zion Ministerial Institute has a very diversified student body, with students and graduates from many different races, backgrounds, nations, and church denominations. Though their backgrounds, nationalities, denominations, and languages may differ, they all have one thing in common: like Ezra of old, they have prepared their hearts to “seek the law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach” it to others (Ezra 7:10).

Elective Activities

Zion Ministerial Institute’s academic calendar is quite demanding, but inside the calendar are plenty of opportunities for times of wholesome interaction with other students and staff. Scheduled ministerial outreaches, field trips, educational trips, and recreational activities provide fun and fellowship.

There are many areas where students are able to minister. Those desiring to use their gifts and talents to minister to others are welcome to discuss opportunities with the Deans.

Dress Code

Clothing is to be modest and reflecting Christian values. Women are to wear skirts or dresses, during classroom instruction and church services. Men are to wear jackets and ties during classroom instruction and church services. During work duties and times of leisure, pants and slacks are acceptable. We ask that you do not wear tank tops, and that shorts be knee length, while semester is in session.

Living Arrangements

Resident housing is available on a first come first served basis. All students are to store all possessions in their rooms. No additional storage space is available on campus. US students must supply their own linens, blankets, pillows and towels; however, these are provided for our international students coming from long distances. Dorm phones are provided for incoming calls; outgoing calls made using 1-800 calling cards only.

Single Residents. Housing is in dormitory style. Each room provides a sink, bed, desktop, dresser or shelving, and closet. Ample communal bathrooms and shower rooms are provided on each floor.
