Why Phoenix Christian?
“I’m very passionate about Christian Education and know God often uses people to position us precisely for His glory! He used someone connected to Phoenix Christian that let the need of the school be known to a friend of mine who then thought of me. This encounter put a divine appointment in motion that merited prayerful consideration. It is now very clear to me that Phoenix Christian Preparatory School is where God wants me to be. My Pastor challenged me at the onset of my career in education to prayerfully consider serving in a Christian school. The result of his challenge was that a passion got ignited in me to serve Him using my gifts of teaching and administration that has continued for several decades! I felt like I was “home” while on campus and meeting with the administrative team. I am privileged and excited to serve with a staff that is committed to excellence in learning while teaching the Truth of God’s Word and modeling what it is like to be a follower of Jesus Christ.”
