I have been praying for your children since the summer – before I even knew them. One of our middle school English teachers opened her class with this statement at IGNite. As I listened to this teacher address the parents, I couldn’t help but smile and thank God for creating this time in my life in which I have the privilege of serving at Westminster Christian Academy.
In many ways, it feels like I have been working at Westminster for years. God’s grace abounds to me in my new position as I meet with faculty and administrators, alumni, and parents. I have been given such a warm welcome. New jobs traditionally bring some degree of anxiety, but from my first day I have felt at peace and at home at Westminster. This place is truly special.
One of my colleagues often says that God has a special place in His heart for Westminster, and I believe it. God’s presence here feels tangible, and I have been encouraged to learn of His faithfulness to this community in countless ways over the years. One of the clearest ways He has done this is by surrounding us with people who have been generous in philanthropic support of Westminster and our mission. Knowing the ways in which these individuals have cared for Westminster over the years is such a rich blessing.
Thank you for your prayerfully considering how you can invest in Westminster. Every single gift makes a difference in our mission to prepare more young men and women to engage the world and change it for Jesus Christ.
If I can be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
