Recently, 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.
I direct all of the choirs at Faith Christian High School as well as the music for Faith Christian drama productions. I have 37 years of teaching experience, with nine of them being at Faith Christian High School.
FCHS Assistant Principal, Band Director & Bible Teacher
I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Colorado State University and after a one year internship in banking believed the Lord was leading me in the direction of full-time ministry.
Twenty-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.
In February, approximately 60 students of our junior class attended a performance of the Tony award winning Broadway play All the Way. This play opens with the swearing in of Lyndon B. Johnson after the death of John F. Kennedy and goes on to portray the maneuvering and negotiation involved in passing the Civil Rights Bill of 1964.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 were spotted in the FCES Library, Mrs. Frizzle was in the Magic School Bus parked outside, fur coats hung at the entrance to Narnia, tacos in the café, and even a museum in the Auditorium. The theme for the elementary school in January was Books, Books and More Books!!!
Our children want to rule the world, but at home that is not encouraged.
At this incredible education facility,
10-year-olds can become mayors and
13-year-olds CAN rule the world!
What do playing in an exciting real-life game of Hungry-Hungry-Hippo, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, extreme tubing, and roller skating have to do with listening to God’s voice?
From “The rain in Spain falls mainly in the plain,” to the Battle Hymn of the Republic, 4th and 5th grade early band performances, and pottery spinning on a wheel, Faith Christian Academy prides itself on an incredible arts program: wonderful all school theater performances, top notch choir and band concerts, and a very creative fine arts program.
Want help covering your tuition costs without selling wrapping paper or cookie dough? Would you like to help support the school financially? Would you like to purchase from Christian businesses and fellow Faith families?
It’s hard to believe that Winter Sports have come to an end.
High School: Wrestling had a record breaking year! The team had four wrestlers qualify for the State Tournament (the most we have ever had) overall placing 33rd by the end of the tournament, and our very own Kolten Hafey finished fifth in the 120 lb weight class!

It was 1992 and time to pick a school. Hard to believe but our oldest was going to start kindergarten the following fall. He was on a waiting list at another school and it looked as if he would be going “school-less” if we couldn’t find somewhere to enroll him.
We 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!
1000’s of gallons of water raged throughout the hallways, classrooms and locker rooms near the end of the school day, on Thursday, November 5, as our Middle School experienced a significant flood of water due to a broken interior fire sprinkler head. Damage was significant, and as a result, the campus closed Friday, November 6, reopening Monday, November 16.
This fall season the FC Eagle athletic programs have been blessed to see success. Playoffs at any round are an honor but to top it off the character and dedication of our athletes has been the real achievement! As an athletic community, we are proud of the character displayed by our young men and women as their coaches inspire them in excellence.
A brief recap for each of our fall sports:
FCHS offered two mission trips over the week of Thanksgiving, one to Ecuador and the other to Costa Rica.
The Ecuador team traveled to the city of Riobamba, in the Andes Mountains, where they worked with local adults and children. The team helped with construction needs, cleaning, painting, and ran a vacation Bible study for the local kids. Faith students had the opportunity to share their testimonies with the high school-aged students there.
Each November Faith Christian Elementary welcomes grandparents from near and far to our Grandparents Day event! This year over 650 family and friends attended. The grandmother of a third grade student says she’s honored by her granddaughter’s desire for her to attend, and loves the school’s friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
