Hodson Hall
2012-1013 Mission and Vision: Spiritual Mental Social Physical It is from our spiritual life that we develop
a majority of our character. Therefore, the
spiritual lifestyle of the Tau should encompass our lives as Christians and men of Hodson Hall. "As Iron Sharpens Iron
So Does One Man Sharpen
Another." Proverbs 27:17 Be Consistent with enforcing
rules and policies. It makes your
and my job easier. DUTY NIGHTS: when on duty, you
are expected to be
either in the lobby or
office. Rounds MUST be
made 3-5 times a night. THis is your time to
connect with other
residents Every duty night
you must leave an
entry in the Hodson
Log binder. This will
include highs and lows
of the night as well as
an encouraging word
for the next guy who will
be on duty HOW DO WE DO THIS? 1) Discipleship is the key method used to bring about spiritual growth in one's life. The leadership team will commit to both growing in their own relationship to God and encouraging their peers to go and do likewise through support and accountability. 2) Programs- In order to live this lifestyle
of discipleship and spiritual growth, we must
do programming that will re-enforce this goal.
Some of the programs we have already as a
foundation include: Rapture, Men's Retreat,
Dead Man Walking, Porn and Pizza, and Unit
Devotions. Honesty
Communication EXpectations (cc) image by nuonsolarteam on Flickr I expect each of you
to be on time to meetings,
1 on 1's, and have your weekly report in on time every week. This not only shows respect and responsiblity to the job you have been given, but also shows respect to me and the staff. RA job comes before intramurals
and other leisure activities. This means
that staff meetings and covenant should
be a priority. I expect you guys to set the tones
on your floors. The first couple of weeks is crucial to getting to know your residents and setting a foundation for the year. Self-control is an often overlooked fruit of the Spirit. The Physical disciplines play a key role in holistic health. Issues of eating, sleeping, exercising, resting and general bodily maintenance are aspects of the physical health that must be purposefully considered. Basic body stewardship is a Biblical command that all must heed. In this age of material and physical obsession, we must more clearly define self-respect over and against the cultural standard of vanity and image One of the significant keys to social growth is the presence of community
living in Hodson. This offers tremendous opportunity for students to learn life lessons in forming strong relationships. The consideration of others' needs, space, wants and demands,fosters communication skills, confrontation ability, ethical discernment andboundary setting techniques. By providing a safe and accepting home for theselessons to be learned, we prepare students to their future relationships, bothpersonal and professional The Mental aspect of the Tau is usually forgotten, but is such an important part in a student’s development. We consider the student’s intellectual development to be indispensably related to their spiritual growth. We understand every Christian to be a theologian of sorts, called to filter everything they learn through a screen of Christian ethics and morality. We are convinced that the role of the undergraduate student is to gain resources and tools through their Liberal Arts education that allow them to spend the rest of their life passionately learning to better themselves and the world around them. Hodson Hall will play a part in encouraging this pursuit of a lifelong commitment to mental development. We encourage this learning to be balanced by stressing at least some involvement within the sciences, humanities, and arts. We want to create students who will be Life Long Learners.
