Winter Weather

In the rare event that classes are cancelled due to severe winter weather, we will attempt to communicate the information as quickly and broadly as possible.


Local television and radio stations will be notified (please look for Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, not Evangel University). The Student Life office will send out an email to students, faculty, and staff, the automated recording on the phone line will be updated, and the status will be posted to the website.


For school closure information, please tune in to local news outlets, check your email, visit, or call (417) 268-1000.
