Living Word Academy

Daily Ministry of God’s Word

Teaching students to put the Lord first in everything and to be ever growing in devotion and service to Him is the reason why Living Word Academy exists as it is today. Chapel is a vital part of every day at the Academy. Elementary grades kindergarten through 6th meet every morning, as do grades 7th through 12th. Elementary and high school students are separated because of their different comprehension levels. LWA’s Chapel is conducted in a similar manner as our regular Church meetings. The students begin by praise and worship to the Lord. Students on the Worship Team lead the worship in the high school chapel each day. After worship, an elementary teacher presents the Word of God to the lower grades, while one of the high school teachers preaches the Word to the high school pupils, under the guidance of the Holy Ghost. The presented Word for the younger students is given in a way they can grasp, remember, and apply. For the high school students, the preaching is presented at a more adult level. They receive it, and then apply it in their lives in a practical way. 


Students are encouraged to seek the Lord during morning chapel.

Students have been saved, healed, baptized in the Holy Ghost (evidenced by speaking in tongues), and generously fed spiritually during Chapel. Chapel every day is God’s program for our students to be rooted and grounded in the Faith. It is an important help to “train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Prov. 22:6) If there’s anything the students are encouraged to do from day to day at the Academy, it is this: “…thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.” (Mark 12:30)
