A very exciting aspect of the Brush Creek Academy Christian boarding school program for teen boys is the emphasis that we put on servanthood, or more specifically servant leadership. A primary part of young people learning this is to be hands-on in serving others. We have found a great way to do this is by immersing the student in this role. Missions provide that opportunity in the best way possible. By taking the student out of his comfort zone and placing him in a situation where there is no familiarity, he is stretched to places and in ways, he never thought were possible. Brush Creek Academy has taken teams to Swaziland, New York City, Los Angeles, Rwanda, Haiti, Burundi, and the Dominican Republic. Our current annual trips include a Teen Challenge in Costa Rica and Teen Challenge Rwanda in Kigali, Africa. During these mission trips the students are stretched by going on outreaches where they perform creative arts, give testimonies and serve the local communities by giving out food, building homes, and working alongside the local Teen Challenge staff and students. Through these multiple missional opportunities, our students can become world changers!
