- I know of a Christian school where a rich and powerful parent is building the school. In fact I know of several Christian schools that fall into that category.
- I know of a Christian school where the senior pastor of a church is building and running the school. Over 80% of ACSI schools are church affiliated.
- I know a school where a small self-perpetuating Board is building the school. Many Christian schools are moving to that form of governance.
I believe the Lord is building Christian Heritage Academy and here is why:
CHA is CHRIST-CENTERED – We take Philippians 3:10 seriously where we read “I want to know Christ.” CHA is a Christ-Centered school. We believe in our mission and in keeping the spiritual compass pointed north.
CHA is PRAYER BASED – Over Spring Break I was asked to pray for three new families representing 11 students. Continue to pray for our 2017-18 enrollment. In recent months we prayed regarding needed roof repairs and God provided. We prayed for a 2 Chronicles 16:9 Head of School and God has provided us with Dr. Hertzberg. CHA is praying school.
CHA UNDERSTANDS HUMILITY – James 4:7 says, “Humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” We all have learned to humble ourselves and allow the Lord to fight our battles.
CHA is WELL EQUIPPED – We are equipped with the whole armor of God as described in Ephesians 6. Without the armor of God we would be powerless.
There are many other reasons why I feel the Lord is building CHA, but I wanted to underscore the four above in this blog.
“Unless the Lord builds the [school], the builders labor in vain”
– Psalm 127:1
