Christ Fellowship Academy is founded upon the Biblical command of Proverbs 22:6 to “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Training is viewed as guiding each child’s development toward Christ-like character and conduct, through a loving concern for his physical, mental, social and spiritual needs. “But the goal of our instruction is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith” (NASB, 1 Timothy 1:5).
Bible & Chapel
Bible study is of fundamental importance and is a required subject. A knowledge of the Bible augments the study of English, history, geography, and science. Applying its moral and spiritual values in character development is the most important work of a Christian school. A study of the Bible reveals the purpose and meaning of one’s life. Students start every morning with bible and worship. They also attend Chapel once a week. This is a time of spiritual enrichment through guest speakers, devotions, group singing, and special music.
As a ministry of Christ Fellowship Church, our pastors provide spiritual support to help with the problems and needs of our students and families. They are also regular speakers in our Chapels.
Spiritual Emphasis Week
Spiritual Emphasis Week is a week where our students attend chapel every morning led by Pastor George Lockhart. Lockhart leads students through encouraging, energetic, worship songs that prepares hearts for the message being delivered. Students also participate in an activity to serve the community.
What makes CFA unique is the emphasis they place not only on learning God’s word, but also on incorporating it into their daily lives. Students attending CFA learn to become a light and a leader to others in their lives and communities, spreading the gospel and God’s love to others. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to our son’s academic or biblical education! – Wendy Southard Pfeiffenberger
Mission Minded Mission Centered Mission Determined
At CF Academy, we strive for excellence not only academically but also in giving back to our community. We instill in our students to look beyond themselves and to serve through our local and global missions. In the classroom, each class chooses their own Reach Beyonds (service projects). These Reach Beyonds are opportunities for students to help by serving and ministering to an individual group. You may see our students collecting canned good, packing school supplies for students, writing encouraging cards, and much more.
Christ Fellowship Church’s local and global mission teams partner with us in providing students practical knowledge of the mission field through our chapels and Missions Week. In addition, we partner to provide our student’s real life opportunities to serve through their Backpack Program and other local events. Our students also may serve globally through Feed My Starving Children, an organization that provides packaging and distributing meals to children in developing countries. Students are also able to sponsor children in need in Columbia through our WOW program. Students not only sponsor these children, but they also communicate by using today’s technology with video chatting. Our students are truly living out what we are called to do.
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Mark 16:15
“Reaching out to the community as a class really made us work as a team. It felt great to give back to the community.” – Marco Melo, 5th grader
