Homecoming Weekend

Event date: September 14–16

Mark your calendar for our 2017 Homecoming Weekend! While Homecoming activities are definitely a highlight for our students, this weekend is also designed to welcome alumni back on campus to stay connected with Faith and feel like a student again. All weekend visitors will enjoy free admission to any of the Faith Eagle athletic events!

Along with the usual weekend activities, we are excited to dedicate the new seminary building and Alumni Hall. If you sponsored a brick in Alumni Hall, this is a great opportunity to come find your permanent mark on campus! See the full weekend schedule below.
