These are exciting days at GCA and we believe that the best is still yet to come! God has been good to us at Grace Christian over the last 8 years and we look forward to all that He’ll do in the coming years.
This school year we acquired 35 acres with a 15,000 square foot home, which will be renovated and become the Grace Christian Academy High School Campus. When the house was built in 2004, I am sure the owner had no idea that he was being used by the hands of God to build such a beautiful house that would later become the first building on the GCA High School Campus. As you look out the front doors of this building, there stands a large oak tree. It reminds me of the verse in Isaiah 61 that says that “they will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” That is the heart of all the GCA faculty and staff, that our students will be oaks of righteousness that they will stand against our culture which is becoming more and more anti-Christian. Our students are planted by the Lord exactly where they are and where they will be one day to be used of the Lord to show His splendor and goodness.
As we continue to pursue excellence in the areas of spiritual growth, academics, fine arts and athletics, we are reminded that our mission is to equip students to impact the world through Jesus Christ. Some students will go on to become missionaries and pastors, while others will become successful businessmen and business women, but we pray that wherever the Lord leads them, they will serve Him and make an impact for His kingdom.
We are so thankful for the opportunity to partner with Christian families as we all strive to leave an eternal mark on the places that the Lord takes us whether that’s simply right here in Franklin, TN or to some small village in a foreign country. I am confident that God has great plans for GCA and great plans for each and every family that is part of the GCA community.
