Prior to being named the LCA Campus Pastor at Liberty Christian Academy, Dr. Stephen Jordan served as a high school Bible teacher at LCA for nine years (2012-2021), the varsity golf head coach for three years (2017-2020), and an assistant cross country coach for one year (2012-2013). Dr. Jordan has also overseen the development of LCA’s apologetics program, spoken in numerous chapels, planned and led many trips, built relationships with hundreds of students and their families, and much more. In addition to these roles at LCA, he has both written and taught courses in an online format and contributed numerous articles to websites pertaining to apologetics. Before moving to the Lynchburg area, he served as an associate/youth pastor at a church in North Carolina for over three years and taught courses at a local Seminary Extension for a year. Dr. Jordan possesses an undergraduate degree (BS) in Education and Youth Ministry, four graduate degrees (MAR, MRE, MDiv, ThM), and recently finished a PhD in Theology and Apologetics. He and his wife, McKenzie, have four children (two girls and two boys), three of whom currently attend LCA. In his spare time, Dr. Jordan enjoys spending time with his family, being outdoors, fitness, sports, and good coffee/tea.

Chapel Overview

Chapel is a deliberate and intentional element of our spiritual development plan that begins in PreK-4 and goes all the way through a student’s senior year. We understand that entering in to a time of worship in the middle of a school day can be tough, but the goal of our weekly chapel is to provide students with an opportunity to focus their minds and hearts on their own spiritual lives and to engage in a corporate time of worship through music and teaching.

On Friday morning starting at 9:30 a.m., our Pre-K students share in a time of corporate worship followed by a dynamic presentation of God’s Word brought to the students by a variety of speakers throughout the year. Chapel is held in the Living Proof Room at TRBC each week. ELC teachers also find time later in their day to reinforce the principles of God’s Word that was taught in Chapel so that our students can learn to apply it to their lives.

Tuesday morning at 9:30 a.m., our Elementary chapel occurs (for our Kindergarten – 5th Grade students). The format is the same – a sweet time of worship filled with laughter followed by a dynamic and thought-provoking lesson from God’s Word. Chapel is essential for our students to learn how to worship as the body of Christ and to dig into God’s Word to find those pillars of biblical truth that will be the foundation for a life well-lived!

Thursday mornings at 9:45 a.m. in the TRBC Worship Center you’ll find our Middle School & High School students gathering for their weekly chapel. Led in worship by the LCA Praise & Worship Team, made up of their peers, our students not only enjoy a time of corporate worship, but also a time to be fed from the Word of God by a dynamic and thought-provoking speaker.

LCA desires for its students to live out James 1:22 and James 2:17. Therefore, LCA has a Christian service requirement in order to graduate or be promoted to the next grade level. LCA accomplishes this by requiring students in grades 9 – 12 to perform a minimum of 20 hours of Christian service per year. Any student who has not completed these hours will not receive their transcripts until the hours are successfully completed. Christian service hours will be submitted through the “MobileServe” website or App.

Christian service hours are due by the second Friday in May. Students who earn 25 hours of Christian service for each year in high school earn a silver chord to be worn for graduation. Christian service hours submitted after the second Friday in May will only count toward the 20 hour graduation requirement.


Please “review the getting started” document for instructions on how to set up a Mobile Serve account and the organization code for each high school grade level. Hours completed after the second Friday in May of each school year may apply to the following school year’s CSER requirement if hours for the current year have been completed.
