“My perspective on education, ministry, philosophy, and life are rooted in Christ alone. We are called to glorify our Father. To glorify is to acknowledge the holiness and majesty of our Savior. In order to glorify God, two essential elements must be in place. First, we must be truly saved by God’s grace, redeemed by the salvation He offers, and must educate and teach according to his will. Second, is that we serve a mighty God. To glorify him, we must have a standard of excellence rooted in the truth in order to be a light to the world. As believers, we are set apart from the fallen world. We are called to be the light and salt of the world; we must learn how to navigate in a secular world that blatantly denies God. As a believer we must have a strong foundation in the truth of His word, and an understanding of our calling, and will to earnestly excel within our calling/ministry.”
