COMMUNITY SERVICE

Christ himself gave the directive to serve others as He has served us (John 13:14-15). Service is an integral part of the life of any believer in Christ. A person with the right character and mindset will serve those around them. A servant attitude demonstrates internal change has taken place. We provide many opportunities; for all grades; throughout the year where students can serve their school and great community.

As our students get older we are intentional about service and require service hours to our school and the students’ greater communities. Middle school students are required to complete 10 hours of community service per semester to graduate. High school students are required to complete 15 hours each semester.

LEADERSHIP

Leadership is influence. As we serve people, we are influencing them for good and every person at every age has the ability to participate. Once we begin to have an influence for good, public victories begin to take place.

Leadership is relevant. A leader must know and understand the context of their community and the direction it needs to go.

Leadership is systematic. As we serve, influence for good, and lead in a relevant way, the result will be generations of leaders who in turn raise up leaders. The ripple effect of leadership has a multi-generational impact. We will see the results of good leadership today in our immediate community, and the waves of influence will continue long after our names are forgotten.

These foundational principles guide the leadership program at Faith Christian School.
