Asbury boasts a nationally recognized Equine program and, upon visiting the Equine Center, it’s easy to see why. This facility takes experiential learning to the next level and features pasture fields, trailers, three round pens, three horse barns, an indoor riding arena and two outdoor riding areas. Additionally, students can stall their own horses during the year in the boarder barn. The Equine Center’s custom, expansive facilities serve as the backdrop for students as they train horses for service in police units and other service organizations.

With a winning combination of advanced facilities and esteemed faculty, students are trained up to be successful media professionals.
Hughes Auditorium is a historic center for spiritual learning. Here, students gather three times a week for Chapel, where they worship together and hear from a mix of diverse speakers from around the world.

Throughout the year, special services, such as Holiness Emphasis Week and Fall Revival, are held to encourage students to encounter God in new and fresh ways.
