Ine of the major goals of APNTS is to provide an environment for living which will add to the student’s total education. Group living provides students with the advantage of broad experience in working and living with others of varied cultural backgrounds and in understanding human relationships. The Dean of Students works directly with student leaders in order to develop an atmosphere in which the students have the opportunity for leadership roles as well as social, educational, cultural, spiritual, and recreational activities.
A. STUDENT ASSOCIATION: STUDENT BODY ORGANIZATION
All students of the seminary are members of the Student Body Organization.The Student Body will elect members of the Student Council. Only students who have completed a full year of studies at APNTS shall hold SBO offices and be members of the Student Council.
The Dean of Students supports the Student Council in developing, planning, and implementing student activities.The Student Council maintains an office in the NCEE building.
B. NATIONAL ASSOCIATIONS
Members of national/ethnic groups represented in the APNTS community may organize themselves as cultural fellowship with a constitution and elected leaders as long as such organizations do not oppose or reject Christian principles and the aims and purposes of the Seminary, and as long as they promote unity, understanding and cooperation among the various cultural groups at APNTS.
A National Association should serve as source of information, inspiration and encouragement amongst its constituency.
Recommendations to APNTS Administration from the national groups should come through the national group leader. Periodically, the Dean of Students will meet with the group leaders to discuss issues of mutual concern. National/ethnic associations cannot establish policy for the Seminary.
The Dean of Students, when deemed necessary for the efficient fulfillment of the aims and purposes of the seminary, may organize a committee of National Association leaders. The Administrative Council must approve the establishment of the committee.
C. SOCIAL RELATIONSHIP
Courtship and relations with the opposite sex are to be conducted with the highest level of Christian propriety. Students are expected to conduct all courtship-related activities with modesty and good taste, as appropriate for Christian workers and not offensive in an international environment.
The Women’s Dormitory, including the steps, are off-limits to all male students and male off-campus visitors at all times.
The Men’s Dormitories,including the steps, are off-limits to all female students and female off campus visitors at all times.
Mixed single student parties are not allowed in the dormitories.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP
This ministry involves diverse students enrolled at APNTS. They are the one singing in our chapel services, prayer meetings, or any service we do at APNTS. They are the living Livites of this time. They take part in this ministry amidst of their busy schedules and we gladly appreciate them and their gifts.
This ministry is being led by Prof. Becky Davis. Almost every year our choir held a Cantata consert to reach out the community and spread the gospel through music. They have been doing various activities and have been touching other people's lives through their voices.
