My wife and I were blessed to become grandparents for the first time on May 27 when our daughter Kristin and her husband presented us with a beautiful grandson, Bryce.
Bryce’s birth reminded us once again of the incredible legacy that a Christian education at EC represents. You see, we pray that in about three years Bryce will join two other members of his generation who are already enrolled at Eastern Christian School – the fifth generation of our family to have received the blessing of a Christian education at this school that is so close to our hearts.
Our desire is for Bryce to receive an education that will prepare him to become a person of Christian vision and influence who is prepared to transform the world in the service of the Kingdom. This desire reminds us of the awesome responsibility that we have to be good stewards of the school that has been entrusted to us. I have the incredible privilege of leading our school through what I often refer to as the world’s best job. I am joined in this mission by hundreds of colleagues who serve EC as faculty and staff members, volunteers and Board members, and by many hundreds more who support us in prayer, financially, and by telling our story.
Together we are cheered on by the great cloud of witnesses who have gone before us as we guard the legacy of this mission that is measured not in years, but in generations!
