From the Desk of Brian Wall

brainRecently, I shared with our staff at the end of the year Exit Lunch that in so many ways, this year at Faith Christian personified the clash of two kingdoms, God’s and Satan’s. While we saw Jesus, through the power of His Spirit advancing, transforming and blessing the lives of staff, students and families within our Faith Christian Community, at the same time we saw the enemy quickly pushing back against students, staff members and families as well.

ES/MS Staff Spotlight - Stormy Anderson

StormyAndersonTwenty-six years ago, God granted one of the desires of my heart and let me begin my teaching career at Faith Christian Academy. Teaching K-12 Art, Yearbook, and Drama was a big bite to chew on as a first year teacher, but I learned quickly that God is good, and he will never call you to something without equipping you to do the job.

Operation Christmas Child - Elem and Middle Schools

ms occ boxpile1We have truly seen the hand of God moving through our Operation Christmas Child outreach this year. After students initially brought their assigned items to their homeroom, many of their teachers were storing the items in the girl's locker room. After the school flood occurred on November 5, our staff checked on the status of the Operation Christmas Child items in the locker room. Wading through the water in the dark, they were able to ascertain if the items had been damaged. While the girls’ locker room had to be re-done, not one of our items was lost!
