It’s been an eventful first half of the school year, to say the least. All things considered, I pray that, as a whole, we have all learned quite a bit about ourselves, each other, and, most importantly, God.
No matter what has been thrown our way, time and time again God has demonstrated His faithfulness in many different ways.
I am really excited about the direction our Chapel program is headed as well as the overall spiritual climate of our school. Week after week, we are making positive strides in the right direction as we continue to lead our students to seek the heart of God. We have been so blessed to have John Martin Davis lead our students in worship each Friday since early September.
As we closed out this year, we had the privilege of welcoming two youth pastors, Brandon Bates from The Island Church and Caleb Santa Cruz from Summit Church, on campus to share with our students during Friday Chapel. Looking ahead, our goal is to provide our students with more opportunities for discipleship and growth by having more local youth pastors attend our Chapel services and further cultivate our spiritual climate.
We also anticipate more opportunities to partner with local churches and ministries to serve our local community. I truly believe that God has some amazing things in store for our school and our students as we strive to bring glory and honor to His great name. I am genuinely grateful for the privilege to minister to and serve our students and anticipate God doing many great things in and through them! Thank you so much for all your prayers and support! Love & Blessings!
