Spiritual Life Theme
"Refocus: The Elements of Faith"
“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16.13
The element “Re” found in the periodic table is a rare earth metal called Rhenium. “Re” will be the symbol that we use to tie in all the elements of faith. The elements of the periodic table are the basic building blocks of everything we see in nature. In this time of upheaval, with so many uncertainties, it is time we get back to the basic building blocks of our faith. What does it mean to be a Christian and to live our lives for the Savior? We will attempt to answer that question and more. Each week, we will be looking at themes such as Redeem, Restore, Rejoice, all with the Re to begin the topic
The Spiritual Life staff models and supports both classroom and campus-wide relational ministry that glorifies God, communicates biblical truths, presents the gospel, and disciples students.
What Makes This Christian Academy in Silicon Valley Different?
Although The King's Academy places high value on academic excellence, it differs from other schools in that everything at TKA is designed to bring students closer to God, to create strong relationship between students and staff, and to build Christian servant leaders.
The entire student body has daily opportunities to mature spiritually through home groups, retreats, chapels, clubs, peer groups, mentoring and service.
Junior High and High School Chapels
The King’s Academy provides separate chapel experiences for our junior high and senior high students. At chapel, students pray together, sing together, and worship God together. Through chapels, students learn to apply Christian principles to the real issues they face, such as peer pressure and family conflicts. Weekly chapels focus on worship and hearing engaging messages based on the word of God from staff, alumni, local youth pastors, and guest speakers. Chapel worship teams are comprised entirely of student musicians and vocalists. Chapel is followed by a special home group time for discussion.
Daily Home Groups
All the programs and events planned by Spiritual Life are designed to build relationships between staff and students, between students and peers, and ultimately between our students and the Lord. The ethic behind all campus ministry is an understanding that small investments over long periods of time reap great rewards. This is why we call it "Relational Ministry." Students meet with their home group each morning to start the day. Home groups are organized by gender and grade, led by a staff facilitator. The goal of home groups is to create a safe, loving, relational environment where students have fun, engage with one another, attend to daily announcements, and share in brief moments of spiritual focus such as prayer, devotion, testimony, etc.
All School Clubs
How to describe a TKA Club? Spirited, loud, zany, unexpected, crazy, creative, hilarious, fun! Club is when our entire student body comes together for an exciting time, which fosters community and school spirit. Club is a celebration of God’s love for us, and yes, there is usually a joyful noise! Club activities include sports rallies, games, competitions, music, video, and live performances.
