More than any other aspect of our school, we are most excited and passionate about the possibility for authentic discipleship. Our partnership with families in raising the next generation holds eternal value. Everything done here at HCA is viewed as an opportunity to pour into the student body in a way that points them toward Jesus. Our goal is to graduate well-prepared young men and women who will be equipped to stand firm in their faith amongst the many challenges they will face in the years that follow their tenure at this institution. Through weekly chapels, the student outreach program, local and international missions, and the one-on-one touch each student gets from the faculty and staff, this goal is realized, year after year.
Discipleship is a result of intentional relationships and accountability that are focused on spiritual growth. HCA’s D-groups are built, and function, on this premise. Small groups are peer-driven under adult leadership. In these settings, students study the Bible, pray and care for one another, and discuss the issues and challenges of life together. As a result of these connections, students experience the joy of teamwork through various outreach opportunities by serving North Georgia and the nations.
