A student of New Life Christian Academy (NLCA), one of the main schools of New Life Christian Schools and Colleges International (NLCSCI) recently decided to return to public school after having been in a Christian school for some time. Only a couple of months later, she went back to NLCA. When asked why, she told a story that well answers this question, “Why does our church need to have a Christian school?” She told how she was in study hall, and one of the students was quietly reading his Bible. The teacher made him stop, and started ridiculing him, getting the other students to do the same. Then later that same day, this student was in the hall, and saw homosexuals kissing one another. No one said anything to them because no one wanted to “discriminate”. Homosexuality was being lifted up as OK while Christians are discriminated against. Because of this, homosexuality is now the “in thing” even in middle school, the thing that children do to get attention.
When the study of the Koran is encouraged, and the Bible is banned, then something is wrong. When Christian children as well as other children are targeted by bullies to the place where children, even middle school age children, are becoming suicidal, then something is wrong. When teachers and other personnel are so over-worked and over-stressed that they can’t do their job, and those in the system who care are so burned out because of a system that is leaving them with an impossible job, then something is wrong. Principals don’t even know what their staff is doing, they surely don’t know what is going on with the students. When ungodly people flock to be teachers, to what was once a Godly profession, and these ungodly people target the Christian children, then something is wrong. When children in high school cannot read, and cannot reason out things unless these things are systematically spelled out in a simple way, then something is wrong. The system is broken, and as a result of this, our children are drowning. It is time for the churches and ministries of America to rise up and take back the education of their children.
One of the main reasons many churches and ministries fail to start a Christian school is because they don’t know how to start. When we started our first Christian school, we didn’t know either. Other schools in our area were reluctant to help us because they didn’t want what they saw as being competition. Because of this, we have been committed down through the years to helping others to start. Our program gives a list of pre-steps to take. It gives an outline of how to structure each department from book keeping to classrooms, to administration, plus all the forms needed to help make these department functional. We have a comprehensive guide that gives practical step by step help. We also offer a book written by our staff titled "A Common-sense, Bible-based Guide to Christian Schools". Plus, we will be there whenever you need us. We can help you out of the resources of our 28+ years of experience.
With us as a partner you can do this. It is definitely time. The current administration in our country is establishing a pro-Christian atmostphere. While the door is open, we need to work. When will you be calling us to get started?
