The Five “V”s of Culture


Jesus and His disciples have forever changed the culture of the world.  Jesus’ strategy for transformation was radically different from the other available options of His day.  Instead of retreating from the world, placing his trust in political solutions, or training His disciples to fight, Jesus created a new community founded on loving God and loving others. The Spiritual Formation Team at Madison Academy seeks to create an atmosphere in which both our school and our community can experience the love of Jesus and share that love with the world.
