Bible Study and Application
Several Handong programs promote a Biblical and evangelical Christian faith. These include Bible and life, creation and evolution, Christian worldviews, and a Handong nurturing system for thematic Bible study.  The Handong Discipleship Movement (HDM) is a small group who meditate on and share the Word of God with others.
Chapel, which is a mandatory course over six semesters, is the core of faith-based education at Handong University. During this time of worship, Scripture is read and expounded and God is praised in song.  Short concerts, plays and special performances encourage team unity and showcase the creativity of Handong students.
Process of Devotion
  • - Handong develops Christian commitment through various discipleship programs. The Handong Discipleship School (HDS) and English Handong Discipleship School (EHDS) held in vacations offer unique opportunities to learn and practice a Christ centered life. At YWAM Hawaii, university students from all over the world converge for a semester of discipleship training.  Vision School (Intercorp) helps students clarify their calling to cross-cultural missions. In addition, cooperation with various Christian missions organizations is expanding.

  • - In this manner, Handong students become leaders like Daniel in the Bible who change the world through their spiritual training.

Dedicated hours of Handong Students
First Hour of Handong / Silent Prayer Hour / Last Hour of Handong
  • - The dedicated hours of Handong are special times of prayer that begin the day, continue throughout the day and bring the day to an end. Pohang is where the sun rises earliest in Korea, and as the morning sun shines, the footsteps of the people of Handong head to the chapel room. The First Hour of Handong at 7:00 starts the day with reading the Word and prayer as well as planning the rest of the day. During the day, the Silent Prayer Hour (12:30) and Last Hour of Handong (22:00) allow members of Handong to spend and end the day in prayer.

  • - Prayer and the Word of God enable Handong members to be at peace despite their busy schedules; filled with passion while exercising prudence.  The Dedicated Hours of Prayer encourage Handong members to receive each new day as a gift from God despite its potential challenges.

Prayer is the history of Handong and its source of power. From the Handong Prayer Day at Vision Square and departmental and Team based prayer groups to prayer request cards filling the walls of the Prayer Room, and prayer response cards that thank God for His faithful answers, prayer is like breathing for the Handong community.
