Staff

Mission Creek Christian School exists to teach students to become self disciplined by providing a balanced education, nurturing social development, teaching an individual rigorous academic program, and emphasizing a healthy lifestyle. Most importantly, Mission Creek Christian School teaches students to become connected in an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ by teaching extensively in God's Word, growing in life's experiences, and learning about God's character in nature.  Each staff member is chosen by God to lead by this example.

Administrator's Welcome

Join me as we explore the passion God has given me to support the education of His youth at Mission Creek Christian school.  I have been refining this vision for the last 40 years working in private, public and home-school arenas.  From a special-ed teacher to serving as a consultant for entire districts, God has put me in places where I can learn how to best educate His children for this life and the life to come. Mission Creek is founded upon what God has instructed in His Word and the Spirit of Prophecy.  Students learn not only academics, but also strong vocational skills and life experiences to grow Christian character.  Our school is situated in 40 acres of pristine forest to help students learn from God’s 3 books: Nature, Life Experience and His Word.
