"Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" Psalms 133:1
Students at the School of the Prophets learn to live in love and unity. The family atmosphere of the school of the Prophets is one of its greatest strengths. Students experience a strong sense of community as they share their personal lives with each other on a daily basis and with the local community. Students are taught how to minister and given opportunities to reach out to the local community during their time in Rocky Mount.
Housing is provided with sufficient closet space, storage and study areas as well shower and restroom facilities. The surrounding atmosphere provides the opportunity for private study, relaxation, and informal fellowship. Resident dormitory monitors assure a healthy and safe living environment for the students. A weekly dormitory meeting provides the opportunity for students and dorm monitors to pray together and discuss issues and concerns related to dorm life.
A number of planned school activities throughout the year provide an excellent atmosphere for students to build friendships and relationships. These activities include picnics, roller-skating, a camping trip (for second year students), a ski trip and formal Christmas and Senior banquets. Fund raising activities such as car washes and spaghetti dinners also provide an opportunity to help meet expenses and have fun at the same time. Work days are mandatory and are an excellent opportunity to put servanthood into action.
Resources are available in the expanding school library and through the local community library which provides access to the Interlibrary Loan and the Internet.
Students are able to take advantage of a wide range of cultural and social recreational opportunities located in local towns and nearby cities as well as enjoy informal on campus social activities. Take a hike to "The Rock" and see the natural beauty of Rocky Mount on a clear day or head to the coffee shop with friends. for the more active students, a challenging game of volleyball, football or baseball at the park may be just the thing you need for a good workout.
Faculty and staff are available to provide counsel to students who need direction in specific areas of their life, both personal and spiritual.
