Society Bands

What is a Society Band?

Each semester the student body of the college is split up into four different teams called “Society Bands.” These groups compete and challenge each other all semester in several different areas. Groups take part in sports for team points. The groups also provide all of the preaching, special music, and skits for chapel services. Society band competitions take place every other Sunday night after church. A weekly chapel service is dedicated to Society Bands where the young men are given the opportunity to preach and the whole group is involved in singing and skits.

Why Society Bands?

Those called to preach have an opportunity to take part in their calling while attending college rather than graduating and never having had a chance to develop and deliver Bible messages. Students find an immediate opportunity to put their talents and gifts to use while they study for future ministry. One of the benefits of the Grace Baptist College Society Bands is that many different singing groups are developed. This provides many students opportunities to minister rather than just a few select singers or tour groups.
