Go Into All the World
Beginning with kindergarten and continuing to grade 12, our students are taught to care for those less fortunate. Our students are provided a variety of opportunities to share the love of Jesus in tangible and meaningful ways. Regent Christian Academy is committed to missions – both local and international.
Discover, Explore, Journey
Missions at RCA enable students to discover, explore and embark on a journey of the unknown. Students (school ambassadors) go into lands they have never seen and embrace cultures they do not know, visiting impoverished areas and bringing the good news of the Gospel. They participate in a number of activities from running children’s programs and Vacation Bible Schools to house building and other practical projects.
Each year we send our DISCOVER, EXPLORE, and JOURNEY teams (school ambassadors) out into the mission field. No matter what team our students are part of, they return forever changed.
“to find out; for the first time to gain insight for knowledge of”
DISCOVER is exactly that. Discover how the great commission applies to you, then GO! Team Discover is designed for the first time missionary – providing an opportunity to step out and discover cross-border and cross-cultural missions. Practical hands-on sharing of God’s love is the focus. Building a house for a family in need, reaching out to children through VBS activities, sharing a meal with local people, giving away clothing, blankets, and food are among the many opportunities this trip presents. Sharing God’s love in very tangible ways while growing personally and stretching your comfort zone is the goal of Team Discover.
“to look into closely; scrutinize; examine”
EXPLORE is the “next step” in missions. You have been on a mission trip, and God has stirred your heart for people in a whole new way. Stepping out with this team means you more closely examine how God may be using missions to lead you towards life as a missionary, whether that takes you to the other side of the world or right in your own backyard. The responsibility falls more on you and your team to make this trip all you want it to be. Sharing your faith and testimony, and interacting more one-on-one with the people you meet and minister to are all part of this team’s goals as they serve in a local church in a foreign country.
“progress from one stage to another”
Previous mission trips may have sparked a passion in your heart for the lost, but now what? Can my life make a difference? Taking all you have learned on previous trips and learning to live a missional life that goes beyond your short-term trips is the goal of team JOURNEY. With Journey, you would travel to a foreign country, serve alongside a local church ministry, or help with an existing ministry that continues to grow. This is the final chapter during your high school years, embracing missions as part of your life’s journey.
