As the top Christian university in Florida, faith shapes everything we do. You’ll find an endless array of opportunities to express your Christian values. You’ll find biblical concepts integrated throughout the curriculum. And you’ll strengthen your faith and develop the ethical principles that top employers seek.
Our Workship program is a perfect reflection of how our people express their faith in ways that improve lives everywhere. In place for more than 50 years, Workship creates opportunities to get out into communities—locally and around the world—where you may feed the hungry, assist with disaster recovery, tutor and mentor schoolchildren, work at children’s hospitals and bring positive change in countless other ways.
Wordship is the cultivated practice of using our words wisely to edify others, including those
with whom we disagree, as a form of worship. It includes spoken words as well as written
Student ministry will position you to spread the gospel and use your ministry skills in a variety of ways. You may lead a service at an area church, minister at a local hospital, guide worship services for underserved populations or express God’s love in communities around the world. We also offer an array of fulfilling majors and minors in our School of Ministry.
Throughout the year you’ll be able to engage in a number of faith-building special events that bring the entire University community together in spirit and worship. These are truly uplifting opportunities to join others in celebrating Jesus Christ.
Our beautiful DeSantis Family Chapel is the physical centerpiece of the University’s God-honoring tradition that stretches back half a century. The chapel’s towering, cross-topped carillon delivers a powerful statement to the student body and the broader West Palm Beach community about PBA’s commitment to being a Christ-first university. Worship services are held here at least four times a week, as well as lectures and concerts that will inspire your curiosity and stir your soul.
You’ll have the opportunity to share your faith globally in the form of serve abroad trips, that may take you to Europe, the Middle East, New Zealand, South America or Africa. In the past 10 years alone, students and faculty on our serve abroad trips have reached more than 17,000 individuals with the message of Jesus Christ.
Bible study and prayer groups take place across the PBA campus, at various times and locations throughout the day, with groups of all sizes. That’s the power of these activities—they don’t require a significant amount of structure, just like minded Christians who want to deepen their faith together and encourage each other to grow in Christ.
