Training up young men and women of God is an awesome and blessed responsibility which he does not take lightly. The Lord has entrusted him with students to train up and he is accountable to God for them. Founded in love, rooted in the Word, and centered on Christ, all we do and teach is designed to provide children with an excellent academic foundation while preparing them for a life of service to the Lord and others.
Ken’s favorite Bible verse is John 3:15 and Phil. 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.”
