Micah 6:8 Leaders
"He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you?
To do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God."
Welcome to our Micah 6:8 Leaders campaign!
Throughout the fall semester, SSCA will showcase some of our Micah 6:8 Leaders who are in Grades 6-12! Read their stories below to learn more about our students and the SSCA community.

What is a Micah 6:8 Leader?
A Micah 6:8 Leader is someone who impacts their community by showing others what it means to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly. They are not conformed by the things of this world or want to exalt themselves above others. Instead, they show what true leadership looks like by serving others and exalting God above all else.
