Developing Servant Hearts

At Northside Christian College, there are opportunities to develop servant hearts from Prep through to Year 12 by understanding mission through service, both locally and overseas.

Discipleship

One of the pillars of Northside Christian College is discipleship—older believers inspiring the younger. Teachers invest personal time into the lives of students, whether it’s coaching the debating team, keeping the art rooms open after hours, attending a Junior School student’s soccer match, or tutoring a struggling pupil.

Discipleship happens in the classroom as well, where students explore the tenets of the Christian faith. But it doesn’t stop with facts and verses. Northside Christian College challenges its students to put action to their words and beliefs. They are encouraged to live lives that bring glory to God, care for His creation, and spread His love to the people around us.

Worship & Prayer

Northside Christian College's vibrant chapels bring worship to the school week. As the students advance through the school, they take on increasing amounts of ownership for the running of the chapels. While younger children enjoy age-appropriate songs and lessons, older students contribute as singers, musicians, speakers, and technicians to deliver meaningful worship services through prayerful collaboration.

Students experience prayer throughout the day in class and in voluntary lunchtime discipleship groups. The Girls’ Verandah and Men’s Shed guest speakers inspire and challenge Senior School students.

Learning to Serve Humbly

Service opportunities are wonderful experiences for students to grow in their faith and confidence. Junior School children support a World Vision sponsor child. Middle School students visit nursing homes and collect food items and practical goods for the needy. On Friday evenings, the Senior School Street Ministry Team cooks up a weekly barbecue for the homeless and lonely in Fortitude Valley.

The College Chaplain oversees the spiritual life of the College, coordinating chapels, staff devotions, and Christian education.

Leadership

At Northside Christian College we believe that a true leader is one who has a desire to serve others first - putting the needs of others first, helping to make others better, wiser, more autonomous, increasing their capacity. A true leader cares deeply for others, loving them, empowering them, noticing and being present to them.
