The number one consideration is found in the nature of Christian higher education. To be Christian, higher education must be whole-person growth. The process and the experience must include the intellectual, the physical, the social, and the spiritual. The total Taylor program is intended to provide opportunities in all of these aspects of the individual's growth.
In the spiritual aspect of growth there are two important facets. The one has to do with the individual devotional life of the growing person. The other has to do with corporate and group experience in worship and other phases of religion-related experiences. This is where chapel and convocation programs belong.
