At Lipscomb Academy we see spiritual formation as the process of growing more aware of God’s presence and becoming more like Christ, through the Spirit in order to live in right relationship with God, self, and others, in every dimension of life.
Spiritual development is woven into everything we do. Science experiments become an opportunity to recognize the power and activity of God on earth. Historical events become a chance to discuss issues and topics in our society as we seek to love others well. Reflecting on literature becomes your child’s doorway to see how their life is a part of God’s bigger story.
Faith is integrated into Lipscomb’s curriculum through foundational standards that start with the spiritual formation of our faculty and staff so that they can guide students in how to encounter God’s presence, to see all people, including themselves, as created in God’s image, and to engage the world with a kingdom vision.
God. Self. Others.
The theme for the 2023-2024 School Year
Our spiritual theme for this school year is SEEK. Our desire is to pursue the Lord above all else as individuals and as a community. As we intentionally SEEK him through scripture and celebrate his protection, promises, and presence in our daily lives, we deepen our relationship with him and reflect his nature in our lives and in our relationships with others.
The theme verse is found in Jeremiah 19:13, which reminds us that we worship a God who desires to be found by those who search for him with all their heart.
Lipscomb Academy’s chapel practicum class appoints a spiritual theme for each year. The students prayerfully ask for God to give both clarity and discernment in selecting a theme that is of His will for the upcoming school year. They also spend class time researching ideas and gathering input from teachers, staff, and students from our youngest Mustangs to our seniors. They design a logo to depict the theme and present their final idea to administrators in the late spring. Throughout the year the theme is used to shape chapel, teacher development periods, and advisory discussions ensuring its impact extends beyond just an idea.
The spiritual themes have been a source of unity and purpose that helps to focus us on God’s mission for Lipscomb Academy.
Relationship. Presence. Image. Relevance. Giftedness. Service.
Spiritual formation should be displayed in the life of your child in real and meaningful ways. Our strongest desire is to see our students live more like Jesus and become disciples with an active, living faith.
