TK-8TH Educational Philosophy

Jesus grew in Wisdom (intellectually), Stature (physically), and in Favor with God (spiritually) and Man (socially) Luke 2:52.  Therefore, our educational goals encompass the spiritual, social, intellectual and physical areas of students’ lives. These areas are inseparable, and through them, all run the insistent thread of being a disciple of Jesus Christ. Our purpose is to partner with families to prepare and develop the whole student; mind, body, and spirit through biblical studies that are interwoven with ministry training, worship arts, and academic content instruction (for students TK-12th grade). Duet. 6:4-9, Proverbs 22:6

The educational approach of Jesus Life School of Ministry is defined below. Jesus Life School of Ministry recognizes that an excellent education is founded upon disciplined, eager attention to learning; that this discipline rests upon the student’s moral character; and that this moral character can only be developed through a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the counsel of the Holy Spirit.

In support of parents’ God-given responsibility for educating their children, Jesus Life School of Ministry seeks to: 

Provide a clear model of the Jesus life through its staff and board members Matt. 22:37-40

Encourage every student to begin and to continue to develop a relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ while learning how to host the presence of the Holy Spirit. Matt. 28:18-20

Teach biblical literacy and spiritual activation in addition to all content area subjects from a biblical worldview. 2 Tim. 3:16-17
