SPIRITUAL LIFE


Spiritual growth is an important part of life at Sunshine Bible Academy.  Devotions are held in the dorms each evening, there is a Wednesday evening chapel service, all boarding students are part of fellowship groups that meet in staff homes each month, and each class is taught from a biblical worldview.

There are also opportunities for small group Bible studies and student-led worship services.

  1. Weekly Chapel
    Chapel services are held each Wednesday evening. These chapel services are a very special time at SBA. The worship team--made up of SBA students--leads a time of singing praises and worship to the Lord. Chapel messages are delivered by a member of the SBA staff or special speakers, except when there are Senior Chapels...
  2. Senior Chapels
    Each SBA senior prepares and leads one chapel service during his or her senior year. Senior chapels are among the most encouraging and rewarding times of the entire year for everyone at SBA. Seniors share a message that the Lord has laid on their heart--usually from a favorite Bible passage or about a specific lesson that the Lord has taught them during their time at SBA. The SBA Chaplain, guides the seniors through their chapel planning.
  3. Morning Assembly
    Tuesday through Friday all students in grades 7-12 meet for a morning assembly at 8:55. This includes pledges, morning announcements and a time of devotions. Faculty members rotate, leading devotions for a week at a time.
  4. Dorm Devos
    Devotions are held in the dorms each evening. The dorm supervisors typically lead the devotions most evenings, though one night per week is usually reserved for "senior devos" when students break into small groups led by an SBA senior.
