Reading Between the Lines: A Christian Guide to Literature

As Faith Christian School began its first year of high school with 9th graders, one course I was asked to teach was English.

UNDERSTANDING OUR AFFLICTIONS – October 23

It is not uplifting to watch men tear down an old decrepit building. It is far more interesting to see a new, well-constructed and beautiful new building rise up in its place. And Moses having given us a picture of the house in which our souls dwell, and how God step by step is breaking it down, now writes this significant prayer in Psalm 90:16: "Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children."

We can be sure that God will hear our prayers. We can be sure because He gave us the light of the face of Christ and His cross which blotted out our guilt. In His word which He moved men to write, and ...

Teacher Training Committee Survey  – First Results

The Protestant Reformed Teachers Training Committee thanks the teachers for their overwhelming response to our survey. Follow this link to the first results of the demographics and educational backgrounds of our teachers. Over the next few months, we will post additional survey results to this site on your perceptions of the value of a structured mentoring program and what additional teaching courses and resources would be most beneficial in the education of our covenant children.

We hope you will keep coming back to this website for the results of subcommittee analysis.


Prospective Teachers

Prospective teachers can now visit the teaching positions tab to find out what positions in our members schools are available. We encourage all prospective teachers to apply and interview at each of our schools. It is our prayer that the Lord directs and guides you in your decisions about your future. We are thankful for you and ask for God’s blessings for you during this process. Schools can express their intent to offer you a contract starting on Feb. 21 and can actually give you that contract on or after April 1.


Call for Website Contributors

Our new website will only remain relevant with fresh, new material. Although we believe the site has a good foundation, it will soon flounder and go back to being irrelevant if we don’t put up new materials each week. If you encounter a book you can review, a hot topic you’d like to comment or reflect on, an article online that may be of interest to others, we would appreciate your sharing and helping us out. You can contact our Website Director, Mike Vander Veen via email to share your idea or materials or to learn how you can help.
