All Bible classes K-12 are designed to engage, encourage, and challenge students with in the truth of God.

HHCA Bible Model

All Bible classes (MS and US) take place at the same time each day.
  1. 16 teachers or administrators (8 middle school and 8 upper school) will teach Bible.
  2. All students 6th – 11th grade are divided into classes of 10 – 20 students depending on the size of your school. Typically the middle school is also divided by gender.
  3. Each group of students is then set up on a rotation system in which they have each teacher for four and a half weeks.
  4. Each teacher then will teach the same four and half week section eight times to different groups of students.
  5. Seniors all meet together as one group in a seminar college prep setting taught by the campus pastor. The goal of this class is to grow the group together and to focus on challenging the students to own their faith in college.
  6. All curriculum is put together on a specific three year rotation by the campus pastor.
  7. All teachers are trained and equipped to teach the specific curriculum that fits within the scope and sequence and yet matches their gifts and passions.

The Benefits

There are multiple benefits to this model. First, each teacher is trained and equipped to teach Bible. They are not just given a curriculum or told to do a Bible study with students. Curriculum is specifically chosen and created to fit each teacher’s talents and passions. The campus pastor meets with each teacher on a regular basis to assist and help them as they teach their Bible class. This alleviates the challenge of putting untrained teachers in the classroom and it also alleviates random half hazard curriculum development. Each section fits into the bigger picture of a three-year sequence. Second, this allows each teacher to engage in the spiritual life of the school on a deeper level. The teachers are challenged to enter into a deeper relationship with Jesus and are accordingly pushed to connect more with the students. Third, the students have more teachers to pursue and develop mentoring relationships with. Whereas in the other models it usually falls on the Bible teachers alone, in this model it allows a student that might not connect with one teacher to connect with another. It lends naturally to the deeper goal of overall discipleship in the Christian school setting.
