As Christians, we feel God has blessed us abundantly and therefore we are called to reach out to one another, to the larger community, and to the world, in a way that reflects Christ’s love. All BCCA students are involved in: caring for our local community, preparing Christmas hampers for the needy, “Operation Christmas Child” (Samaritan’s Purse), learning to care for our family members, and helping the aged and infirm. Senior High School students have the opportunity to be involved in a missions trip in a developing country.
Community Outreach Day
Once a year as a whole school we get out into our community to make a difference. We have volunteered at local thrift stores, non-profit societies, and city projects, among other things. We have recently participated in Giving Tuesday and are looking to expand and seek new opportunities to be involved.
“Thank you so very, very much. We are truly blessed in receiving such kindness and generosity, and the opportunity to work with such wonderful people.”
Joni Mitchell – Network for Animals
Operation Christmas Child
Yearly, all grades get involved in participating in this mission outreach of collecting donations for Operation Christmas Child. The shoeboxes are sent to children in war-torn and poverty-stricken continents such as Africa, Europe, and South America.
High School Missions Trips
BCCA senior high school students have the opportunity to be part of a mission team and become ambassadors for Christ in another country.
On these trips, many students are pushed outside their comfort zone by doing physical labour and ministering to people they visit. They in turn are blessed by the friendly openness and care from people in other countries.
We have recently partnered with ONE LIFE, ONE CHANCE for our Missions Trips.
British Columbia Christian Academy students have many different opportunities to spread the Good News of Jesus to people in their community and abroad. Students are involved in community events such as senior citizen outreach and cleanup days removing litter in the neighbourhood. In addition, our high school students minister to and serve food to those in need. The students also sponsor children from different countries in Primary, Intermediate, and High School. Loving God and loving people is an important part of student life.
