STUDENTS CODE OF CONDUCT

 

Daystar University is a non-denominational Christian institution, a community of believers from various ethnic groups, nations and church communions. It is expected that students will exemplify a God-controlled life, both on and off the Daystar campuses. As guides for individual and group actions within this community, the University affirms the following general principles of conduct. These principles serve as the basis for regulations concerning student conduct.

  1. A student should constantly remember that he or she is an “ambassador of Christ” and should make sure that his or her behavior does not bring reproach to the Saviour.
  2. When a student sees a brother or sister whose life appears to fall short of this standard in some particular area, it is his or her responsibility to go to that person privately and to “speak the truth in love”, with the aim of helping that brother or sister to walk worthy of the Lord.
  3. There are significant parts of the body of Christ served by the Daystar Community who believe that certain behaviors are sinful or unbecoming of a Christian. We recognize that sincere followers of Jesus Christ honestly differ in their view in some areas, and we recognize that Christians in other contexts might order their lives somewhat differently. However, we also believe that as a community, we should govern our lives so as to maintain the ministry of Daystar to the whole Church in Africa and to support Daystar’s witness to people from all walks of life.

The mission of Daystar University is to train and equip servant leaders for the expansion of God’s kingdom in the world, with special focus on Africa. The emphasis is on equipping Christians for effective service in the communities where they live and serve so as to win disciples for the kingdom of God. To this end, the Gospel should be effectively communicated by every Christian, the laity and the ordained, the businessman or businesswoman and the teacher, the technologist and the professor. It is our prayer that students will develop life habits that will help them communicate God’s word to their neighbors.
