Growing Disciples

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
~ John 13:35
 
Growing Leaders and Growing Disciples – what do these mean at Portland Christian? Leadership is not only about positions, titles, power, influence, and authority.  True leadership is also about service, integrity, humility, courage, and love for one another.  
 
For Christians, it starts with living our lives as followers of Jesus Christ.   PCS programs such as Peer Ministry, Digital Discipleship, Serve Day, and Chapel intentionally teach students about these qualities.  However, it is by engaging in the day-to-day activities of homework, sports, the arts, clubs, service projects, and even just hanging out with friends, that students put into practice what it truly means to be a disciple who leads by example.

Read about a family's experience at PCS:  
"PCS is a faith-based school where our kids could stay from start to finish — kindergarten through graduation — that’s small enough to provide a family-feel, but big enough to offer many options."  ~ a PCS parent
