Values & Vision - Nexus ICA

Our vision is to be Europe’s leading Christian institute for vocational arts and technology training

Nexus is called to be a premier, global Christian institute known for the integration of faith, discipleship and vocational training in the service of God’s people, His church and society. Throughout its history, Nexus has been the recipient of a wealth of contributions and investment; leading to talented staff, gifted students, loyal alumni and generous partners. Because we have received so richly, we are dedicated to giving generously to others, and to share the teaching, revelations and values with our current and future students, families, churches, communities and the wider world. Nexus enjoys a distinctive ethos, mission, and character that will equip and empower us to serve the needs of our students.

Our Mission

Through excellent training programs and comprehensive discipleship, Nexus ICA leads Christian musicians and technicians from diverse backgrounds into an understanding of the full gospel of Jesus Christ. Nexus ICA is committed to building spiritual and musical foundations into individuals, essential for realising their full potential in life, and releases students into active participation in the building of God’s kingdom.

Our Values

Nexus ICA is committed to upholding standards of integrity and accountability in line with its values and principles. We commit to the Nolan principles of public life as a standard for operational activity:

  • Selflessness
  • Integrity
  • Objectivity
  • Accountability
  • Openness
  • Honesty
  • Leadership

Adherence to Biblical Standards

We believe in the transformative capacity of the Bible and promote its principles and ways as a foundation for the life of individuals, communities and societies.

Person-centred Education

We are building an education system that is person-centred and focusses on developing the whole person, encompassing but also more than academic achievement. We believe that learning is a process not only an outcome, therefore the whole person: body, mind and spirit, is engaged in that process.

Community

We recognise that the building of strong community is imperative to the success of the individual in all areas of life so actively build strategies of collaboration to aid the strengthening of the individual and the whole.

Integrity and Character 

Integrity and character are prioritized over gift and skill and as such we deliberately and strategically build in opportunities to develop areas of character leading towards greater maturity.

Excellence

To be truly excellent carries with it a requirement to be hostile to mediocrity, complacency and inferiority wherever it is found. We actively encourage the pursuit of a higher standard in all areas of life.

Technical Expertise

Every skill is a gift from God and should be treated with utmost care and diligence. We are committed to being excellent in our craft, not taking the gift for granted or relegating it to the lowest form of expression but applying time, energy and skill to making it the best that it can be.
