Spiritual Formation at Valor is about an uncompromising integration of faith and learning which envelops the students, staff and faculty in a unified vision of Christ-like character development in all pursuits. Spiritual Formation must be a lifestyle developed and lived out before a Christian worldview becomes part of the student’s life. Therefore we have set aside time each week during the school day to intentionally pursue Spiritual Formation.
Chapel, Life Groups, Chaplaincy and Alpha
Chapel: New Testament Theologian Thomas Wright states that “we become like what we worship”. Valor provides transformational, meaningful, and memorable worship and devotional encounters with God through music, drama, prayer, teachings and shared spiritual experiences. Chapel is held on Wednesday mornings.
Life Groups: Life groups are another extension of Valor’s deep desire to mentor, disciple and prepare the leaders of tomorrow who will change the world for Christ. Eight to ten students meet in single gender groups with a mentor on a regular basis to support, encourage, pray and bond together. These groups are formed during the freshman year and stay mostly consistent throughout the student’s high school experience. Each Life Group takes on it’s unique personality gives students another outlet to grow in their faith and learn life lessons from Christian leaders.
Chaplaincy: Since inception, Valor has been blessed to have a full-time Chaplain employed on campus. The Chaplain has been available to students, faculty and staff for mentorship, guidance, prayer, and comfort in crisis situations. As Valor continues to grow, our Chaplaincy has also grown.
The responsibilities of a chaplain include: overseeing the weekly student focused Chapels; managing the assignment and encouragement of Arts and Athletic Team Chaplains; planning and implementing after hours student events; overseeing parent Bible Studies; and ministering to the Valor community at large.
Valor is also committed to growing our student chaplaincy program. Our student chaplains currently work closely with Student Council (StuCo) initiatives. We are enthusiastic about future opportunities for student Arts and Athletic Chaplaincies. Spiritual growth and development in Valor co-curriculars.
