A few CHA teachers have told me they periodically see a spark/proclivity in a given student in their class relative to a certain career choice or for missions or for full time ministry. I have even had teachers point to CHA graduates who are married and say, “They met in my class.” We don’t view ourselves as “match makers” or Human Resource Professionals, but we do prepare CHA students for college, career and for life as followers of Jesus Christ.
In the spirit of Romans 12, we suggest to students that they give themselves to God as a living and holy sacrifice — the kind God will accept. We admonish students to not “copy the behavior and customs of the world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do.”
Recently I learned that CHA graduates Jonathan and Lisa Lobel were celebrating ten years of service at Beskydy Mountain Academy (BMA) in the Czech Republic. Subsequently, in communication with former CHA teacher Paul Till who serves as an administrator and teacher at BMA, Till said, “Jonny and Lisa are not just CHA graduates. They MET in “MY” SIXTH GRADE in 1996.” God’s ways are higher than our ways.
Thank you for investing in young men and women who grow up to be world-changers, for the glory of God.
