Convocation is an annual event at which students and faculty gather to celebrate the official opening of the scholastic year. Originally, "convocation" meant a gathering of the clergy or the divisions of a diocese; however, at Clearwater Christian College, the word and the event have changed from these ecclesiastical roots to embrace the intellectual community.

The College's convocation officially welcomes new students to the Clearwater community and encourages them to consider their own intellectual and spiritual journey for the upcoming academic year. This occasion also serves to familiarize incoming students with the College's academic traditions, as well as the institution's history, symbols and mottos.

Convocation for the fall 2013 semester is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 22, 2013, and will be held in the College gymnasium. President John F. Klem will preside and also give the convocational address. The community is invited to join the entire CCC family for this joyous occasion.
