Service has played an integral part in FRA’s history and is
woven into all parts of the academy. Students have the opportunity to serve others both locally within our
community and the greater Nashville area, and globally through mission trips.
Service has an incredible power to transform lives – both
those whom we serve as well as our own – and we hope that the numerous
opportunities for service while at FRA will develop skills, leadership
qualities, and passion that will last long after graduation.
The Center for Philanthropic Studies organizes a large part
of the local community service, coordinating Service Saturday events as well as
service opportunities for clubs and teams.

Missions enable our students to not only serve others but to

and communities both nationally and internationally. Missions also give
students a chance to see how God is at work outside of our own community. In
the past few years, students have participated on mission trips to Colorado,
Alabama, Appalachia, Mexico, and Jamaica.
