PCA Mission Statement

PCA Mission Statement

Foster Discipleship. Serve Christ.

At PCA Senior School, students are inspired to develop their potential to the fullest. During these important years, students reflect on what and why they believe and our teachers are there to discuss faith with them. More importantly, teachers walk the talk. PCA teachers, like any other Christians, do have challenges in life. However, they stand firm in faith regardless of the situations and their testimonies become an inspiration to the students and the larger PCA community.

Bible classes are mandatory for all Senior School students. They go through Christian classics such as The Pilgrim’s Progress and Case for Christ. At Grade 11, students learn about world religion and apologetics. They are equipped with the reasons, techniques and the desire to defend Christian truth and values wherever they may go.

At Chapel, students lead the worship under the direction of teachers. Worship is followed by Bible exposition and/or testimonies. We also arrange for mission groups such as CTI music ministries to come and share their work.

Missions – local and global

It is our desire at PCA that our students develop a heart for missions. This has been a priority since its origin under the leadership of Dr. Oswald J. Smith. Recalled to Life (R2L) is a program that assists in helping the needy in Toronto. This is usually done as a sandwich run, providing necessary nutrition as well as the Gospel of Christ. Senior School students also follow the Great Commission to go and make disciples. Each year, there will be at least one global mission trip. Starting in 2010, the PCA graduating class started to turn their graduation trip into a mission trip. The PCA graduating class, partnering with Caravan Ministries, goes to Mexico every spring to help build houses for the needy at Mexico.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28: 18-20 (ESV)
