What happens in this course?

Our theme for the school is: “It starts in your heart” and we want to help our students connect their “brain knowledge” with their “heart knowledge” so that they can OWN what they learn and use it practically in their lives.

Our goal is to equip the whole family into ministry.

We want to help the children grow closer to God through learning about God in the classroom and practicing their skills on weekly outreaches. Friday afternoons we gather the whole family from 1-3pm to worship, learn and play together as a unit. We want to see the whole family being discipled, so that all the members of the family can use their skills to benefit the most from each other’s talents. We also offer weekly parenting classes, and they are open for everyone.

How to hear God’s voice

Understand Jesus as a role model and God as our father.

Guest speakers from around the world

Children will also be asked to bring school work from their “home school” for 30-45 minutes (depending on age) to work on in the classroom 4 days a week.
