Service & Leadership
Cross-Cultural Outreach Trips
For the past 10 years, Carver Christian High School's Grade 11 students have participated in a variety of cross-cultural outreach trips. This vital program will be carried on in John Knox Christian High School. On these trips, students are learning:
- about working together as a team
- first-hand experience in a different culture that they will then serve in
- how to be stewards of their time, resources and abilities
- about being a servant of Christ and others, both at home and abroad
International teams learn about life in another country such as Costa Rica, China or Thailand. The Vancouver team learns about social issues and poverty here at home, and then go to serve in local ministries.
We want our students to learn to serve God through words and actions. Students can grow in relationship with Jesus Christ through their work, study and prayer. Our students also grow in community through these experiences, working together and facing challenges side-by-side.
As a school, we are able to provide more than most short-term mission experiences. In Advisory classes before and after PEAK week, our students learn how we in the first-world can affect those living in third-world conditions. Our hope is that each of our students will experience transformation and growth in their own faith through this program.
School life provides young people with many opportunities to step forward and become leaders – spiritually, academically, athletically, socially, and more. These leaders encourage student participation and help shape the school year.
