Orientation for Incoming Freshmen
The orientation helps add vitality to freshmen who are unfamiliar with college life. Introduction about school life and various information is shared for freshmen taking their first big step into college life, and seniors are networked with juniors. It is a program that helps freshmen double-check the sense of calling they harbored when they entered the university. It is a special one-time event which will guide the first holy step into campus life.
Various activities are prepared according to the characteristic of each department at the student retreat held at the beginning of each semester. The event forms a sense of intimacy by providing a chance to meet professors in each department, having group gatherings by grade, and hosting meetings between seniors and juniors. On top of that, diverse programs are carried out so that students can have a sense of community with spirituality, character, and intellect.
Moksan Festival held every May is the festival of KBTUS students. The festival has the meaning of Mok-dong, Daejeon which was the second campus of Korea Baptist Theological University/Seminary, and also means “the Garden of Pastors.” The student council, broadcasting station, and clubs each prepare their own events. This is one big party where all students, staff members and professors have a great time. Prominent speakers, pastors, and CCM artists are invited so the entire school can see and listen to many speeches and stories, and enjoy performances.
This is an event, which began in 2003, held during “Moksan Festival.” The students of the Department of Social Welfare play a pivotal role in this walking event to improve the awareness on the disabled. In this event, local residents, students, and soldiers in the Daejeon and Chungcheong region become one team with the disabled people from social welfare organizations, and march around Noeun area. This event is supported by donations and volunteer workers, and over 2-3 thousand people participate every year as they share love and break down the barriers between the disabled and the able-bodied. Hence, this is the only event in the country where the disabled and the able-bodied come together and enjoy a diverse university culture.
Love Sharing (Church Evangelization Group, Social Volunteer Group)
The purpose of sharing and practicing love is to establish the identity of our university and to build character in our students. The church-supported evangelization group instills the power and the opportunity for churches to win the soul of people while giving God all the glory, and enables students to personally experience the scene of pastoral ministry and evangelization. The social volunteer group is achieving God’s love with devotion through serving various facilities by emulating the heart of Jesus who first thinks about the weak and vulnerable. About 1,500 students are sent out after receiving systematic training, and the meaning of love sharing is doubled by the participation of professors and staff members.
KBTUS Goun Festival
This puppet show festival hosted by the Department of Early Childhood Education and the student council of the department began since 2001. KBTUS puppet show festival is one of the largest performances in the country viewed by 5,000~6,000 people from local kindergartens or nurseries, and local residents. For this event, the students of the Department of Early Childhood Education are making preparations with professors even during the vacation to give the best performance possible. This event is greatly contributing to the image of KBTUS as an open university to the local communities of Daejeon and nearby residents.

Centered around the World Mission Club (undergraduate) and Mission Research Center (graduate school) created by our school, various mission clubs within the campus work together for missionary work to expand the kingdom of God.
