Spiritual Life Special Events
During the school year both the lower school and upper school students take time out of the academic schedule to focus on what God is doing in the world outside of the walls of Harvest Christian Academy. These events are experience based and students are able to interact with topics like the persecuted church, evangelism to people in world religions, the need for missions, and country specific needs. All upper school students are given opportunities to participate in mission trips during spring break with the student ministry of Harvest Bible Chapel. (Outward focus)
Twice a year students are involved in spiritual emphasis days that help focus their hearts on what God is trying to do inside of them. LifeDays includes special chapels, extended times of worship, and activities designed to help students grow in how they live out their faith and how that faith impacts their families and relationships.

Day of Prayer
All of Harvest Christian Academy, from the youngest preschooler to the parents, are invited to participate in days of prayer and worship that are set apart to focus the Harvest Family on the needs in our community, country, school and families. Individuals are invited to call out to the Lord on behalf of others through special chapels, prayer groups through out the day, and prayer guides that can be used at home.
Juniors and seniors are given the opportunity to be trained and partner with lower school and middle school students that need help navigating social issues at school, or crisis in their family. Students are invited into the program as mentors through an application process and are matched up with students as needs arise throughout the year. Mentors spend time talking through any concerns or problems that the younger students are facing and offer support and friendship as they walk through tougher seasons of life. Mentors are fully supported by the pastoral staff of the church and typically work along side the Harvest counseling ministry "Soul Care" as advocates for the younger student.
