Project Outline and Scope
Major Areas of Learning:
1.) Biblical Teaching / Spiritual Formation: Old and New Testament Survey, Hermeneutics, Apologetics and Evangelism, Spiritual Disciplines, Role of the Holy Spirit, Basic Christian Doctrine and Theology, Principles of the Church / Church History, and more…
2.) Leadership and Character Development: Leadership Principles, Missional Thinking and Engagement, Conflict Resolution, Communication, Personal Finance and Biblical Views of Money, and more…
3.) Clarity of Identity and Calling: Dating and relationships, Biblical masculinity / femininity, Personality and Gifting, Vocational direction
4.) Practical Skills: Each student will choose an area of interest to work in throughout the school year and over the course of the year create a portfolio with a year long student project. Think of this as a "mini-apprenticeship" where a students gain hands on experience and knowledge in an area of interest. These studies are guided by the input of area leaders in the field as well as the "Vox Team". This means every student leaves with the ability to make or create something... and has marketable skills to offer whether they are used in terms of their vocation or are developed as meaningful hobbies or side ventures later in life.
