Service and Missions

Loving and reaching out to others are hallmarks of the Praise Academy family. Our faith inspires a love for others. This love for people has inspired several ministry opportunities for our students. Our mission includes the expectation that we will be equipping our students to engage and transform their world for Jesus Christ.

Our desire is to make disciples of our students so they can make disciples of others. Reaching others is an act of service; therefore, the best way to be the hands and feet of Christ is to serve others.
