These are the values that we want each student to have engrained in them as they graduate from high school.  Everything we teach in Roots and Deeper Roots has these principles and Scriptures in mind.  These values are reinforced from the time your child enters into our Middle School ministry to the time they graduate our High School ministry.

Take some time to get familiar with our values below:

Authentic Faith: This value focuses on a correct understanding of faith. Faith is confidence that God is who He says He is and that He will do all He has promised to do. We want our students to understand that God can be trusted and that He will do all He has promised to do.
Spiritual Discipline: The focus of this value is a student’s quiet time through his or her bible reading and prayer life. The apostle Paul assures us that transformation begins with a renewed mind. As students begin to renew their minds to the truths of Scripture, their attitudes and behavior will change. We want our students to know that if we could see as God sees, we would do as God says. 
Moral Boundaries: Purity paves the way to intimacy. One of the most important things a student can do is establish limits. Students need to learn how to protect their body and emotions by honoring God’s plan for sex and morality.
Healthy Friendships: The people our students associate with the most will determine the direction and quality of their lives. This value focuses on helping our teenagers build healthy friendships while avoiding unhealthy ones. 
Wise Choices: In light of past experience and future dreams, students need to ask themselves “What is the wise thing to do?” Good decision making is more than simply choosing between right and wrong. This value focuses on the necessity of wisdom in decision making. 
Ultimate Authority: Freedom and authority are often viewed as opposing concepts. But the Scriptures teach that freedom is found under authority. This value focuses on the need for students to stay under the authorities that God has placed over them. 
Others First: Selfishness comes natural. Selflessness must be learned. The hallmark of a believer is his or her willingness to put the needs of others ahead of their own. This value addresses our student’s propensity toward selfishness and self-centeredness.
