Opportunities for Spiritual Growth
Chapel: The goal of chapel at Pacifica is to tell God’s story to all students so that they may walk further down the road on their spiritual journey. The amazing life of Christ and His gospel message is a message of hope and one that transforms lives. The Pacifica administration and faculty are devoted to living authentic lives and embracing all students regardless of their religious background. We believe that the pursuit of God happens as students, parents, and faculty engage in an honest and open conversation.
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.
Student-Led Worship: A weekly student-led chapel program encourages the development of worship as a regular practice. Pacifica students have the opportunity to participate in leading corporate worship through scripture reading, teaching, and participation in the worship band.
All-School Retreat: An overnight retreat in the fall is an annual highlight for students and faculty alike. Teaching, worship, community building and welcoming new students combine with hours of recreation and games to create a memorable start to the academic year.
Teacher/Student Mentorships: Pacifica teachers invest in students’ lives both in and out of the classroom. Whether leading elective field trips, hosting movie nights, organizing small group Bible studies, or coaching athletes on sports teams, our faculty are examples of how Christian educators look beyond the walls of the classroom to encourage and guide students in their daily lives.
Bible Studies: Student-led Bible Studies develop organically at Pacifica as upperclassmen feel called to lead peers in prayer, Bible study, and small group discussion. Students also meet frequently to pray for each other, their school, the community and the world.
Mission Trips: Cross-cultural experiences and serving the underserved in local communities are life-influencing opportunities for Pacifica students. Many students participate in mission trips through local churches and ministries on an individual basis. Pacifica anticipates offering an annual school-sponsored mission trip in the near future. This trip will be open to all students and led by Pacifica faculty.
We seek to encourage students to love God with both heart and mind. (Mark 12:30)
