Spiritual Life

DURING THESE EXCITING YEARS YOU WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO GROW AND TAKE GREATER OWNERSHIP OF YOUR FAITH, CONNECTING WHO YOU ARE TO EVERYTHING GOD DESIRES YOU TO BE.

Pacifica believes that one of most important aspects of education is cultivating faith, character and service to the glory of God. We are not simply after apt minds that can nimbly move through a complex argument. Reason without root is, quips G.K. Chesterton, reason in the void.  Rather, our goal is reason rooted in first principles of faith. We are concerned about how our students are living and will live. Paramount to a life well-lived are the virtues of humility, courage, love, generosity, joy, justice, thanksgiving and peace.

We believe all truth is God’s truth and thus seek to find it both in Scripture and in the rich canon that has been given to us by those who have gone before. At Pacifica, students experience a safe, open, and honest pursuit of ideas and faith where all questions are regarded thoughtfully and everyone is treated with respect and dignity.

It is a great privilege to come alongside parents and local churches in the encouragement of faith in our students. We encourage students to grow and take greater ownership of their lives, connecting who they are to everything God desires them to be. 

Adolescence is a thrilling time, filled with triumph and disappointment. Our community strives to give and receive grace through it all, helping our students to better recognize the truth of their lives, who God is, and what He is doing. At Pacifica, students experience support, encouragement, and love as they mature into young adulthood.

For these reasons, Pacifica is committed to providing programs and opportunities to encourage students in their pursuit of God in the community.

We gather each week for chapel, to worship and to learn. Our chapels welcome pastors, teachers, musicians, missionaries, and other fascinating people from Orange County and around the globe. We regularly serve one another, and our local community, through various organizations and service days.

Our Bible curriculum teaches students how to read the whole Bible–from the story of Creation to the promises of Christ’s return–and takes them through a study of the history of the Christian Church, culminating in their thinking Christianly about contemporary problems and situations. After four-years, our students see God, themselves and the world differently.

We seek to encourage students to love God with both heart and mind. (Mark 12:30)
