"Discipleship at LCU" is a program for all full-time undergraduate students designed to grow and mature students in three distinct areas of Christian spiritual life:
LCU students worship together in Chapel, are held accountable by one another in Spiritual Formation Groups (SFG), and serve alongside one another in Service Learning and during Restoration Week.
Undergraduate students gather every Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. to worship together in the Earl C Hargrove Chapel Auditorium. We offer ourselves to God individually and collectively through music, the arts, the Word of God, preaching, testimonies and prayer. Participation is required for all faculty and full-time students.
Seminary students meet on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-10:15 for Chapel in the Dowling Auditorium. A break is given from the 8 a.m. classes in order for students to attend. This gathering provides a midweek opportunity for students, faculty and staff to engage with God and the LCU community. It is the primary corporate gathering for the Seminary family and attendance is strongly encouraged. Occasionally, a variety of Tuesday morning gatherings are offered and may include Convocation, concerts of prayer, panel discussions, special worship gatherings, lectureships, etc. The dates for these gatherings are available at the beginning of the semester, so that students may plan accordingly.
Chapel attendance affords the unique experience of discovering various approaches to worship and preaching. The public is welcome to attend.
You can listen to past Undergraduate and Seminary chapel messages here.
Spiritual Formation Groups are led by faculty, staff, or upperclassmen, and usually consist of 6-8 students. Though each group will have a different focus, all will have the same goal, and each will contain elements of accountability, encouragement, devotion, and prayer. The ultimate goal of Spiritual Formation Groups at LCU is simply to have Christ formed in us. Participation in a Spiritual Formation Group is required for all full-time undergraduate students.
Students sign up for a new SFG at the beginning of each school year. Look for SFG announcements on campus or in your LCU email inbox. Contact Jodie Merritt for more information.
Any student who wants to lead an SFG must meet the SFG student leader requirements and submit a SFG student leader application to Jodie Merritt. All SFG leaders must attend every scheduled SFG student leader training session. Contact Jodie Merritt for dates.
Service Learning is an integral part of a Lincoln Christian University education. Because it is our mission to train servant leaders, we believe that Service Learning is a critical for all LCU students. Each semester, all full-time undergraduate students are required to report 12 Service Learning credits as designated by Program Directors. Service Learning activities are academic major specific, so see your program director for Service Learning requirements.
Restoration Week is an opportunity for students to gain exposure to God's world, to encounter God at work in His world, and to engage in that work. Each year Restoration Week provides opportunities for students to grow and expand their classroom learning, in a "week of class on the road." Teams of Lincoln Christian University students are dispatched to service and ministry sites throughout the world: locally, nationally, and internationally. These trips are usually led by Lincoln Christian University faculty and staff members, and students engage in a variety of activities, including church building, youth ministry, homeless ministry, construction projects, inner city ministry, and monastic experiences. With at least 25 trips offered every year, each student is able to find a place where they can be blessed and be a blessing. As part of the Service Learning program, Restoration Week counts for part of every student's Service Learning activities in the spring semester. Click here for descriptions of the trips for 2013. Click here for details of the trips for 2013
The mission of Lincoln Christian University is to nurture and equip Christians with a Biblical worldview to serve a nd lead in the church and in the world. The goal of Restoration Week is to provide students with unique service experiences using a "week of class on the road" format to allow students to engage in, encounter fully, and be exposed to God's work in the world. In this way, Restoration Week is a tangible way for the entire campus to live that mission together as a community of believers.
Each year this program provides opportunities for students to serve at nearly 40 different sites allowing the students, faculty, and staff of LCU to highlight the importance of our Restoration heritage as we work with churches. Restoration Week also provides opportunity for students to participate in community service projects that restore both culture and creation in the name of Christ. And finally, Restoration Week provides opportunities for students to participate in spiritual and educational retreats to restore the soul and solidify Christ's call to ministry.
Yes, Restoration Week is required for every full-time student in the School of Undergraduate Studies as part of Service Learning for the spring semester.
Restoration Week, like Service Learning, is an integral part of a Lincoln Christian University education. Because it is our mission to train servant leaders, we believe that Restoration Week is a critical time for students to encounter God, be exposed to where He is at work in the world, and engage in that work. An intensive service experience through Restoration Week shapes students' hearts and develops their characters by engaging their gifts, passions, and sense of calling while teaching valuable life lessons. Restoration Week enables faculty and students to work side-by-side in taking Christ's message of love through service to more than 25 worldwide locations every year. We strive to step outside of our own lives and glorify God during this week.
We are particularly sensitive to the fact that the today's economy is making it harder for some students to raise the funds to cover their trip. One of the ways we are working to make Restoration Week finances more manageable is to spread out financing by adding a $150 Restoration Week deposit to the fall semester bill. When you enroll full-time for the fall semester, this charge will be added to your account, and will apply toward your Restoration Week trip costs in the spring semester. If you already know that you will not be participating in Restoration Week during the spring semester, please email Jodie Merritt to request an immediate refund for this charge.
If you apply for, and are accepted to, a $150 trip, you will have no additional charges in the spring, and the deposit will be used to pay for your portion of team's supplies, fuel, and food (the cafeteria is closed during Restoration Week) during your project.
If you apply for, and are accepted to, a trip that costs more than $150, your deposit will be applied toward the entire cost of your trip.
With more than 25 trip offerings to local, domestic, and international service sites, there are trips sure to fit every budget and every heart. Trips begin as low as $150 and are always less than $3,500.
With more than 25 trips ranging in cost from $150 to $3,500, there are trips to fit every heart and every budget. Restoration Week charges go on a student's school account, so financial aid can help pay for Restoration Week costs. Students are encouraged to raise support to cover their trip costs through fundraising activities and by reaching out to friends, family, and churches. Click here to view a sample letter of support.
No. Donations to cover Restoration Week costs are applied directly to a student's account. This is not the same as a tax-deductible donation to a not-for-profit organization. This is a donation to a specific individual to cover educational expenses.
Students are invited to the Restoration Week Fair in October to be introduced to the trips that are being offered the following spring. Students submit an application listing their top four choices and their reasons for choosing those trips. Students should approach these trip selections in a prayerful, thoughtful mindset. Pray for wisdom and guidance as you select your trips. Consider how the trips align with your gifts and talents and your budget. For many students, it's important that parents be involved in the decision-making process committing to a trip. Once a student submits a Restoration Week application and is accepted to a trip, he or she is obligated for the entire trip cost. This is because trips are budgeted on an expected number of students per team, and the loss of any student increases cost for his or her teammates. As soon as a student submits an application and is accepted to the trip, the Restoration Week deposit and all other trip costs become non-refundable.
Students are invited to the Restoration Week Fair every year in October to learn about the trips offered in the spring. Students submit an application listing their top choices and their reasons for choosing those trips. Once the application is received and logged in the Service Learning Office, each application is sent to the leader of the trip that the student listed as their first choice. That leader will either accept that student on to his/her Restoration Week team, or return it to the Service Learning Office. Leaders evaluate their applications based on a variety of factors related to their service site's needs: gifts and talents, class rank, gender (for lodging purposes), and/or field of study or experience. Applications that are returned to the Service Learning Office are then forwarded to the student's second choice trip leader and the process is repeated. While most students are accepted by their first choice, there are many who are not. It's important to list choices you will be ready to commit to, because once a leader accepts your application, you are assigned to that trip and cannot change your mind (see "Can I change my Restoration Week?"). Every year there are some students who do not get assigned to any of their first four choices. This is typically due to the popularity of the trips chosen, or the quality of the application submitted, but it may be any number of things. When this happens, a student is asked to submit a new application listing new choices from the trips that remain open.
If you have any uncertainties about your full-time status at LCU in the spring semester, please do not apply for a Restoration Week project. If you return, your Restoration Week options will be substantially limited, as most teams will be full. However, this is better for everyone than to commit to a team and be forced to incur financial and workload obligations that you will be held to, regardless of your enrollment status in the spring.
In submitting your application, you agreed to the commitment policy listed on the application page which states:
"By submitting my application, I indicate that I understand that I am committed to the trip listed above for which my application is accepted and I am responsible for all trip expenses upon the acceptance of my application by the trip leader, regardless of when the charge shows on my student account or when the money is due. I understand that I will be held to this commitment regardless of any change in my interest or circumstances, including withdrawal/dismissal from LCU or non-registration for Spring 2012 semester. Medical excuses may be accepted with a doctors' note, but I will still be liable for non-refundable charges or for my contribution upon which the team is depending. I am confident that I can raise money to cover my trip contribution."
The Restoration Week trip cost "per student" is based on a certain number of students in the trip. Reducing the number of students on the team raises the cost per student for each student on the trip, which would be an unfair burden to the team. Additionally, your trip leader chose you for the team based on your gifts, skills, talents, and/or your mix in the class rank or gender for the team dynamic. Your team is counting on your contributions in these areas.
Finally, leaders often receive more applications than they can accept. Other students were turned away from this trip because you were accepted. It's unfair to them for you to gain a spot on the trip and then walk away from your obligation.
Any student traveling outside the U.S., including destinations in Mexico, Canada, and Puerto Rico, needs a passport. You must apply for your passport as early as possible: no later than the end of fall semester for spring trips. This is to allow ample processing and mailing time to receive your passport. If you are traveling outside the U.S., you will be turned away at the airport if you do not arrive with a passport, and your trip charges will not be refunded (See "Can I change my Restoration Week?" to understand why your team needs your contribution even if you do not attend).
You may find instructions on how to apply for a passport by clicking here.
All international trips and many domestic trips will require flying. If you can't overcome your fear of flying, we suggest you choose local trip assignments.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention makes recommendations regarding immunizations for travel outside the U.S. We strongly recommend that students follow the CDC recommendations, and we request a doctor's note from students who elect not to follow the CDC recommendations. You may find recommendations for your travel destination on the CDC website by choosing your destination from the list.
Many international trips will require vaccinations, so if you can't overcome your fear of needles we suggest you choose local or domestic trip assignments.

After hours emergency contact and security: 217.737.0159
The purpose of these "Emergency Management Guidelines" is to safeguard the students, employees, property, and integrity of Lincoln Christian University in the event of an emergency.
In managing emergencies, the first priority is the safety of our students and employees, and in any case of doubt, one should always err on the side of safety. The second priority is clear and appropriate communication so that all affected parties understand what is expected of them and for what time period. The third priority is the desirability of returning to normal routine functions as quickly and safely as possible, including the continuous protection of our property, plant, and equipment so that returning to routine is feasible.
Part of the process in protecting the integrity of the institution in responding to any emergency is to have a single voice to speak for the institution, especially to off-campus constituents, whether those constituents are news media, the general public, our alumni, or constituent churches. In most emergencies, only the President or the Provost is authorized to speak officially for the institution, especially to off-campus entities. All requests for information from off-campus personnel, especially from news media, should be referred to one of these two individuals.
An emergency is any event that affects significantly the routine functions of all or part of the campus, including life threatening situations, and requires some kind of immediate response that is not routine. Emergencies may range from minor (cancelling some classes due to bad weather) to severe (evacuating the entire campus due to a threat). An emergency may or may not imply an immediate threat to life, since a blizzard or a power outage could be viewed as an emergency but not necessarily be life-threatening.Emergency Notification Signup
Anyone who witnesses or recieves information regarding a campus emergency is instructed to contact the Emergency Management Team (EMT). They can be reached by phone:
|7:30am - 4:30pm||217.737.6010||Director of Facility Management|
|4:30am - 7:30am||
If the incident involves a Level 1 (Minor Emergency), Facility Management or Campus Security will take steps to remedy the situation utilizing the appropriate University Departments and outside resources. Appropriate members of the campus community will be contact for their assistance.
If the incident involves a Level 2 or 3 (Major Emergency or Disaster), Facility Management/Campus Security will contact appropriate member of the Emergency Management Team (EMT). The decision to declare an emergency will rest with the president or his designee.
"911" phone calls made on campus phones (##911) or your cell phone (911) will be answered by local police. In order to assist the dispatch in processing the call quickly and efficently, please be prepared to give the following information:
Stay on the line until you are told to hang up. Make sure that you (the caller) are not in danger.
