Spiritual Life

Head, heart, hands

Spiritual life is the soul of everything we do here, and each day brings new lessons in what it means to follow Jesus’ example. Sometimes we learn these lessons by reading a book about the early church or singing a new worship song, and sometimes we learn them by lending an ear or extra hand to a classmate in need. Simply put, we think spiritual life should engage our head (learning about the Bible and Christian history), heart (attending chapel, joining prayer groups and talking about our faith) and hands (reaching out in service to others) to spark meaningful thought and growth.

We know students come to us with a range of spiritual perspectives and varying depths of relationship with Christ. At CHCA, spiritual life is not about being perfect, following a certain doctrine, trying to look like a good Christian or saying you "believe" to be part of the crowd. It’s about meeting students where they are, and engaging their head, heart and hands in activities that help them develop a personal, resilient Christian faith that will be with them for the rest of their lives.

Spiritual life at CHCA is a daily part of what we do. From concerts to class projects to sporting events, we are all about sharing the Good News. Join us for an upcoming event, visit us during chapel at any of our campuses, pray with us before a football game, or just walk through the halls to get an idea of how life here keeps us grounded in Christ’s love every day.

Our teachers want to make sure that our faith is our own. They want us to know why we believe something—not just accept what others tell us.
