The means of making disciples...
For Christians, we all have one job: Do The Great Commission. We are to teach people how to be followers of Jesus Christ, and that begins with sharing the hope that we have in Jesus's death, burial, and resurrection. In Christ, we have forgiveness of sin. We are to teach people to obediently follow Jesus in baptism, as Jesus was himself baptized. We are to teach people how to intentionally build lives that replicate this process in others. This Commission should be the centerpiece of our lives - everything we do ought to be tied directly to furthering the mission we've been given, because ultimately we will each answer for the life we've lived.
As humans, we have limited resources of time, health, attention, and money. God created each of us with unique gifts and resources for the purpose of serving him for his glory. Our purpose is to help people refocus on our God-given priorities and reallocate resources in a way that reflects the mission through teaching.
Jesus taught, and modeled, and taught some more. We want to affect change in the lives of others through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We were built for service to others and our aim is to build servant leaders who strive daily to fulfill The Great Commission.
We are a school at heart because the Great Commission requires teaching. Christianity is about teaching by speaking, teaching by leading, teaching by mentoring, teaching by example. Growing in faith is experiential and in the process of learning we develop an understand of our value, identity, and purpose in Christ Jesus.
Our primary method of instruction is the learn-by-doing approach. Through project-based evangelism, we teach Kingdom work by doing Kingdom work. Jesus frequently used the lecture/lab approach where practical teaching results in practical application.
The aim of instruction is preparing students for the next step in their journey through education and experiential maturity. The old saying goes, "you haven't completely learned something until you can teach it yourself". Our goal is to educate and provide missional experiences for the purpose of developing mature Christians who are able to effectively share their faith with others.

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.”
