Encouraging students in their relationship with Jesus.


The Discipleship Department of Calvary Christian Academy exists to encourage students in their relationship with Christ and equip them to follow the Lord’s commission in Matthew 28:19 to “go and make disciples of all nations.”

"Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ." —1 Corinthians 11:1

Students have opportunities to experience God through age appropriate and biblically based activities such as chapel and local outreach opportunities for grades Pre-K - 12, and small groups, spiritual retreats, and missions trips for students in the secondary school.

WEEKLY CHAPEL

From Pre-K through 12th grade, weekly chapel services are a significant part of a CCA student’s spiritual growth. Students gather for corporate worship, to study the Word, and to apply Biblical truths to their lives on a level that relates to them. Messages are taught by school staff, CCFL pastors, and various other ministry leaders. Testimonies, dramas, student led worship, and intercessory prayer are typical components of chapel services.


SMALL GROUPS

Discipleship is a result of intentional relationships and accountability that are focused on spiritual growth. CCA’s small groups are built and function on this premise. In the secondary school, small groups are peer driven under adult leadership. In these settings, students study the Bible, pray and care for one another, and discuss the issues and challenges of life together. As a result of these connections, students experience the joy of teamwork through various outreach opportunities by serving South Florida and the nations.


CLASS RETREATS

Secondary School students have an opportunity to take part in annual spiritual retreats. During these events, students participate in personal and team-building activities, which foster spiritual growth and understanding, and promote class unity. All middle school students take part in a one-day retreat at a local park in the fall, while the 9th and 10th grade students go off the property for three full days in the spring.

  • 10TH GRADE RETREAT

    Theme: Godly Relationships:Honor

    The Sophomore class will spend three days at the beautiful Embassy Suites in Boca Raton with Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale’s Lead Pastor, Doug Sauder, and his wife, Suzanne, along with Mr. and Mrs. Fagin— as well as a panel of teachers and CCFL youth staff — exploring biblical teaching and practical application of real, loving relationships. The students will practice, honor and learn how to live in right relationships with our Lord, our family and our friends, and see how all of them are part of God’s good plan for our lives.

    The content of the retreat is designed to encourage class fellowship and unity, teach honor and respect, and open the students’ minds and hearts to God’s best for their relationships, both now and in the future. The activities include times of focused teachings, a special “dinner and conversation” to practice honor and respect in a social setting, and team building activities that emphasize the importance of working with, caring for and honoring others.

Entitled, Trusting in God and Building Relationships with Others, the retreat is one of those CCA memorable events, where students experience great fellowship, high ropes challenges, water activities on the lake, worship, team building, teachings, and other fun activities


OUTREACH

Outreach opportunities are designed to help students learn the gift of service and empower them to put their faith into action. Students take part in these opportunities through their small group and Bible class. It is always exciting to see the blessing they experience when they get out of their comfort zone and help someone in Jesus' name! Examples of particular outreach activities might include visiting convalescent homes, evangelism trips, serving the poor, drives for local/international ministries, etc.


MISSION TRIPS

Annual international missions trips for 8th and 11th grade students provide an opportunity to reach the world for Christ. Missions trips support biblical principles taught in the classroom, chapels and small groups. Students experience environments that teach, stretch and challenge them to love and serve those in need.
