Spiritual Development

As a Christian school the mission of BJA is to promote Christlikeness in the lives of its students through the direct preaching of the Word of God as well as through classes and extracurricular programs.


What better way to support the mission of BJA than to set aside a time for students to attend an age-appropriate chapel.

Elementary chapels include a rotation of guest speakers and class presentations. Themed presentations include music, Scripture recitations and dramatic arrangements. Guests are welcome to attend as these students present important spiritual lessons to their peers.







Middle school students meet for chapel twice a week, and services are oriented to and targeted for the needs of middle school students. Students contribute to chapel by providing instrumental or vocal special numbers.

High school students gather for chapel, growth groups, and special assemblies three times each week, providing opportunities to hear God’s Word taught, apply it within a small-group setting, and hear from our music groups, student body officers, or share testimonies with one another in the larger setting.
