Practical Guidlines (Campus Rules)

Purpose of Guidelines

Practical Guidelines (CAMPUS RULES)

At CCBCK we recognize that rule-keeping is not the goal of the Christian life and we want to avoid a rule-based mentality. Our desire is that we all would draw closer to Jesus and grow daily in His grace. As we grow in Christ-likeness, we will be less concerned about pleasing ourselves and more concerned about pleasing God and being a blessing to others. While our goal is that students will develop this character and constantly choose to act in loving ways toward others, our campus rules and discipline are in place to help maintain a good environment for people to study the Word of God without hindering each other. Each semester during Orientation Week, on campus students are updated on the current campus rules. The most important aspects are summarized below.

Dorm Room Living

Dorm Room Living

Students share rooms with up to four other individuals. Please limit what you bring as space is limited. Food is not allowed in the dorm rooms, but there are designated areas in the kitchen, as well as limited refrigerator space. All types of weapons are not permitted. Pets are not allowed.

General House Rules

  • Meals will only be available during meal times.

Curfew

Curfew

To provide for a healthy schedule, all students will be held to the campus curfew of 11:00 p.m. Sunday night through Thursday night, and midnight on weekends. All students must be in bed with lights out by midnight. Off-campus students must leave the campus by this time. All Students must be in their rooms by 10:30pm. There is no curfew on Friday and Saturday nights, but staff will make a note of those who are outside of their dorms past midnight for the sake of accountability. If students will not be returning to campus on a weekend night, they must sign out, and let a staff member (not a student) know. This is for safety and accountability sake.

Quite Times

Quite Times

Quiet hours are 10:30 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Personal bunk lights may be left on, but overhead lights must be turned off in the dorm rooms. There is to be no talking, phone calls, or other noise in or around the dorms or living areas after 10:30 p.m. This time has been set aside to allow for sleep, personal devotions, study, or prayer.

Dorm Guests

Dorm Guests

The personal safety of our students and staff is very important. For this reason, a staff member must approve ANY guests PRIOR to their arrival to the dorms. Guests are not allowed to sleep in any of the dorm rooms.

Cleaning Rooms

Cleaning Rooms

Daily Bed Checks will be performed Mon-Fri at 12:00 pm. This check is to make sure each room is “decently in order” and beds are made. Dorm Cleaning Checks will be performed once a week. Weekly cleaning responsibilities are shared by all in the room.

Entertainment

Entertainment

Students are not allowed to bring TV’s, Video Games (or Consoles), Movies, or TV shows to Campus. This also includes streaming ANY Video (Netflix, Hulu, MLB.com, etc.) on any devices. Though these are surely liberties a Christian can enjoy, for this season we ask to turn off these distractions and focus on why you are here. We encourage music which builds up and edifies. Secular music must be listened to with headphones. Please use discretion in the music you chose to listen to.

Food in Rooms

Food in Rooms

Food is not allowed in the dorm rooms. The slightest scent of food attracts unwanted creatures such as ants, rats, and cockroaches. There is space provided in the kitchen for you to store your food. (Food includes: coffee, tea, tea bags, candy, etc.)

Internet

Internet

The internet is a wonderful tool, but can also be a major distraction. We do provide wireless internet on campus, but in order to maintain a focused environment, we do not allow steaming video services such as Netflix, Hulu, MLB.com, etc. Social media (SM) is also a great way to keep in contact with friends and family, but like anything else, can be a major distraction. SM applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. are not prohibited on campus. However, we do encourage students to set responsible limits on the amount of time they are using SM.

Prayer Life

Prayer Life

Classes do not replace a daily, personal time with God. Your time at CCBCK should result in knowing Jesus better and to being prepared to serve Him for a lifetime. The sanctification process will be hindered if you do not set aside time to spend with Him in prayer, study, and meditation on His Word.

Dress Code

Dress Code

The main purpose for any type of dress code at CCBCK is to help men and women focus on the Lord and not to be distracted by the physical appearance of their classmates. For this reason, we ask that all would dress modestly so as not to bring undue attention to themselves and perhaps stumble a brother or sister. “Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4 Here are some guidelines:

  • No Clothing which reveals your undergarments
  • No Clothing which reveals your anatomy in a provocative way
  • No Pajamas outside of Dorm rooms.
  • Clothes must be worn over swimsuits at CCBCK house.

Modesty will be at the discretion and discernment of CCBCK leadership and will be addressed individually if needed.

Realationships

Relationships

Your relationship with any other student, visitor, or staff member should exemplify the love of Christ. Be polite and considerate. By love serve one another. All relationships should demonstrate purity (1 Timothy 5:2 and 1 Corinthians 7:1).

Unacceptable Behavior

Unacceptable Behavior at CCBCK

Violation of the following may result in dismissal from CCBC:

  • The use of alcohol, tobacco, or any illegal drugs (Gal. 5:19-21) (CCBC is a non-smoking facility)
  • Any rebellion to established authority; failure to submit to CCBC or CCCC staff (1 Sam. 15:23)
  • Sexual immorality, pornography or any type of impurity (Gal. 5:19)
  • Cheating on tests, plagiarizing papers, signing someone else into class, or other forms of lying and deceit (1 Cor. 6:8)
  • Stealing, which in some cases includes “borrowing without permission” (Eph. 4:28)
  • Violence of any kind, i.e. threats, vulgar language, aggressive disputes (Rom. 1:29-30)
  • Ignoring or breaking any law of the State of Hawaii, or the United States of America (Rom. 13:1,2)
  • NO WEAPONS are allowed on campus…guns, swords, etc.

Disciplinary Action

Discipline

The leadership at CCBCK are always hopeful that with the work of the Holy Spirit and compliance of each student, formal discipline will not be needed during a semester. But we also are aware that living in a fallen world as believers, these vessels of clay are susceptible to sin and temptation that can interrupt the greatest of intentions. Should formal discipline be required, we are prepared to carry out the following phases of discipline severity:

  1. Probationary Warning (In this phase, students will be on the “Probation” list for a limited amount of time as deemed appropriate for that given situation. A second offense during probation may result in suspension).
  2. Suspension (This phase means the student is not allowed to attend class for the designated amount of days but can remain on campus. The absences will be marked as unexcused).
  3. Expulsion (This is the final phase that removes the student from his/her study path for the remainder of the semester. Refunds are not issued for an expelled student).

These levels of discipline will not necessarily go in this order as some violations of our rules are serious enough to warrant and require immediate suspension or expulsion.
